Hello, I'm Ema Suriano!

Web Developer πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

About meπŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

I was born in Buenos Aires πŸ‡¦πŸ‡· where I completed my studies as Software Engineer and started my first steps as a Software Developer, and at the age of 25 I moved to Berlin πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ where I currently work and live.

One thing I learned from all these year is: "The best way to learn is to teach". Because of that:

  • I frequently contribute πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» to the Open Source community, building and sharing my own projects or creating pull request to other repositories.
  • Once a month I write ✍ an article in Medium about topics I find interesting and that could help someone to understand a concept or solve a problem.
  • Sometimes I do talks πŸ—£ in my job or in meetups, showcasing a project I made or a new technology.

When I'm not coding, you can find me playing Football ⚽️ or cooking amazing dishes in my house πŸ‘¨β€πŸ³. Although I don't have a professional camera, I like to take pictures with my phone and share them inside the 500px Community.
