Want to be an excellent software engineer! Moved from US to AUS. Formerly a drilling engineer for Shell. Looking to explore Melbourne, meet new people, and learn new things.
After moving from Perth to Melbourne to complete my legal studies, I would like to learn to code before entering the workforce. I have always been interested in understanding the intricacies of web development and have the knowledge of a full-stack developer. I enjoy watching the NHL and AFL in my spare time as well as reading.
I was a trainer and educator in soft skills courses for adults and children. After a number of years in education, I entered the start up world where I developed skills to become in Digital Marketing and Project Management. Working in a small startup environment helped me develop entrepreneurial experience and insights. My role required me to collaborate with external stakeholders and agencies to optimise and increase web conversions. Having worked with UX Researcher, UI Designers, SEO / Content Specialists, Developers and other teams, I found that I wanted to learn more about programming to hone my ability to communicate better technically. Having said that, I am keeping an open mind throughout the next 9 weeks, because I may just fall in love with programming and become a full stack dev instead!
Panamanian, travel-junkie, blockchain fanatic, and liquid democracy geek. Worked at the Permanent Mission of Panama to the United Nations in Geneva for a year and a half, when I realized most of UN's issues were in reality because of a lack of efficient, transparent, and up-to-date processes. That's when I started researching technological possibilities to solve these, eventually resulting in lots of coding tutorials online, leading me to move to Berlin to join LeWagon. I plan to use this newly-acquired knowledge to enhance government services, promote public participation through technology, and hopefully give a hand at bettering their current archaic (or "traditional" as they call it) structures and processes.
I'm a software developer specialising in UX working in Melbourne with a strong international portfolio. I've contracted in Australia and the UK (London) on projects big and small for various clients during the past 5 years and thrive in fresh, challenging and changing environments.
You can see work that I've done and some industry opinions I have about UX in the travel industry at http://usabletravel.com.
Previously as an active member of the Drupal.org community, I've contributed patches to various contributed projects including Acquia Commons. I also frequent Drupal issue queues posting bug-reports, work-arounds and replies.
Paal recently moved to Melbourne, the best city in the world, to stay with his twin brother. Prior to web development, he had a background in digital business & marketing, and had been working for internet startups, as well as starting his own. Above all, his passion is to find and guide people’s talents as well as inventing fun metaphors to intuitively explain web concepts.
