Tech products are used by people from all around the world and from all walks of life. Unfortunately, a lot of them are not included in the development of these products, and their perspectives become missed opportunities or even serious missteps.

When it comes to software development, we should help avoid this and change the odds for more people to take part in building apps that solve real-world problems. That’s why React Day Berlin invites all women, LGBT+ folks, people of color, people with disabilities, and economically disadvantaged individuals interested in React to apply for a diversity scholarship, and come…

You started creating visual musical works in the late 2000s. Was it an established art genre back then or were you the first pioneers of the style?

The genre has much deeper roots that people think. Already in the 1930s, there were people like the American artist Mary Ellen Bute who experimented with mixing music and abstract animation. I had it much easier because when I started, we already had affordable computers and I could tinker with software.

Technology is an important part of your work. Can you tell us more about the hardware and software you use for your compositions?

How do you usually introduce yourself?

I’ve been working in front-end and native development for the last 14 years. My career really took off, though, with the introduction of the first smartphone. You can find me coding around the clock – now largely for my startup – and when I’m not doing that, I love spending time with my wonderful wife and 3 amazing kids. I live in a city called Kfar Saba, in Israel. The startup I recently co-founded, Lance, helps freelancers manage and optimize their backend finances. The mobile app is written entirely in React Native.

What makes you passionate about your work?

I’ve always been fascinated by the interaction between…

How would you introduce yourself?

I’m a Software Developer Engineer at Godaddy. I’m currently working as an Engineer on GoDaddy’s Website Builder product. Besides my work, I love traveling, longboarding, things related to Japanese culture, 8-bit art and listening to music (especially old songs).

How do you usually introduce yourself?

Usually in Berlin everyone wants to know where you’re from and what brought you to the city. In that respect, I’m an American who first came to Germany to work at the University of Leipzig’s NLP department and then decided to try startup life in Berlin by joining SumUp almost four years ago. Today I’m leading a distributed team of thirteen frontend-focused engineers. Besides my job, I like photography, travel, and pilates.
