I'm a 40-something woman living in Berlin, Germany (the famous one, with the wall).
How do you sell your labor in order to survive in a capitalist system?
I'm a front end developer, which means I build the interfaces for the sites that you use every day. I specialise in creating simple, robust, and inclusive solutions. I have no time for the latest trends that appease the technological fetishising areas of the web community.
I'm a late entrant into the modern web game, only starting as a web developer in 2012. But I've been in kissing distance of the web and technology for most of my life, while working as a graphics designer in private business and a technology teacher and VLE admin at further education institutions.
I work for Springer Nature (the good Springer, not the evil one) in Berlin, and was previously at BBC News in London, where I was responsible for building the 2015 General Election site and eating an awful lot of biscuits.
If you define me as a person then I'm a photography-taking, bike riding, beer drinking, feminist leftie.
I read more than is healthy, and spend as much time as I can exploring the beautiful world we inhabit.
I have voluntary control of my tensor tympani muscles.
"Well, you do have a touch of the German techno-anarchist about you".
