full stack web developer
Hey! I'm Tanya - a full stack developer from Atlanta, GA. I'm high-spirited, insatiably curious, and always good for a laugh. I love coding, my three dogs (Walter, Doug, and Tesla), and learning anything new - just for the fun of it.
I got my start in web development when I was 13, customizing my own sites with basic HTML, CSS, and a little Photoshop. I've since (thankfully) expanded my knowledge in development technologies, and most recently attended Georgia Tech's Full Stack Web Development Bootcamp.
I'm a first generation Colombian American (my entire family hails from Medellin), and I try to visit at least once a year. My first true passion was music; I played the cello for just over 12 years. I used to play in the Gwinnett Symphony Orchestra, a local volunteer-based county orchestra, playing holiday ballets, park concerts, and other events.
More random stuff: I'm fluent in Spanish, conversational level in German, and am currently learning the very basics of Japanese (hajimemashite!). My fastest time solving a rubik's cube was a minute and seventeen seconds. Using my fingers, I can count to 1,023 in binary! I love photography, specifically taking candid photos of people and events, capturing real moments in time and how they felt. My favorite movies are The Fifth Element and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (when I was young, I got a bow and arrows and shot in my backyard so I could pretend to be Legolas).
As a full stack programmer, I build web applications from front-end to back-end. My priority is to create responsive, clean, easy to navigate UI's with effecient, organized, and easy to expand back-end code using best practices.
I am currently seeking a Software Engineer / Developer position in the Atlanta area.
