Hello, I am Mirjam 👩‍💻

I am a highly motivated Software Engineer, leaning heavily on the Frontend side and in love with all-things JavaScript/TypeScript 💛 and testing!

Me, gesturing with my hands and speaking. You see a blurred window in the background. It is clear that this is a conference setting.

I’m working over 5 years in development and bring substantial experience and learning from all the areas I worked in more than 20 years - as an 👩‍💼 office manager, but also as a 🐶 dog trainer.

I love working with and caring about dedicated people. I write reliable, maintainable, well-tested and readable code and semantic, accessible HTML.

What I enjoy most in coding is delivering sustainability: Writing tests and seeing them pass; planning, organizing and improving the software architecture of my project; cleaning up, refactoring, testing and eventually deleting code.

Some of my projects

In my free time I like to work on some side projects, often related to programming and the developer community in general. Here are a few of them:

  • 🐶   Conference Buddy
    Conference Buddy aims to make tech conferences accessible for people who want to attend, but who are not comfortable going alone.
  • 📻   Co-Host and guest at podcasts
    Co-host at expect-exceptionsViews on VueWorking DraftKein Problem, Kein ProduktProgrammier.bar
  • 🫶   (Co-) Organizing meetups

  • 👯‍♂️  Programm commitee for conferences
    EnterJS 2021, 2022 • vuejs.de Conf
  • 👩‍🏫  Guest lectures at the University of Applied Sciences in Darmstadt
    From 2018-2020 I gave guest lectures at the University of Applied Sciences in Darmstadt on the Faculty of Media, teaching students about the basics of web development - HTML and CSS - and give an introduction to software testing.
  • 💻  Free webinar: Testing your Gatsby Serverless Functions with Queen Raae
    Free Webinar on how to get started TDDing your Gatsby Functions.
  • 📽  Video stream series with Queen Raae: Start Conference Buddy 2.0

Conference speaking

I've given talks and keynotes on various conferences since 2018 and been invited to community eventes and meetups to speak. I'm open to speak at more events, so, feel free to contact me about that.
