Could you introduce yourself to our readers?

I am Victoria, living in Munich, Germany. I’m originally from Ukraine. For more than 6 years I worked as a software engineer and recently moved to the product management. I taught myself programming before codacademy and coursera existed, because I accidentally got into programming classes in the uni.


What are your goals?

To have a head / VP / C-level position and create awesome things :). I want to become an entrepreneur or a chief product officer. For that, I follow both tech and society. Also, I am really hands on and in the free time write code / learn something new

What advice can you give for people getting into tech?

I would really recommend the CS50 course (covering CS and web basics, Python etc.) and Linux and all that basic stuff that self-paced people are tempted to skip.


Who do you follow online?

Elon Musk😍

Whats the best and worst advice you have received?

Best: just debug it.

How to keep up with what you are doing?
