Rails Girls Cieszyn (15 – 16 October 2016)

Since 2013, when I found the Rails Girls event in Poznań, I have always supported this initiative. In this year I was already on Rails Girls Warsaw, Rails Girls Łódź and Rails Girls Poznań as a mentor. Nowaday it was time for Cieszyn! Rails Girls Cieszyn was for me a very special event. First of all, I organized it. Second, it was my first international Rails Girls event ever. Third, we prepared this event in the Castle of Cieszyn. Cieszyn is a beautiful, calm and peaceful place in Poland close to border of Czech Republic. This city is even more...

Rails Girls Poznań (02 – 03 September 2016)

Summer is almost gone and I’m back on Rails Girls journey. This time I went to Rails Girls Poznań.

Rails Girls Łódź (16 – 17 June 2016)

I’m really a Rails Girls freak! After a weekend with Rails Girls Warsaw, I went to the next workshops. This time, I was in Łódź on the third edition of Rails Girls Łódź. I loved the atmosphere of this workshop. It is always a pleasure for me to share my knowledge and to see that other women want to try new things.

Rails Girls Warsaw (11 - 12 June 2016)

It is time to start the new Rails Girls season! My first Rails Girls event, this year, was in Warsaw. Warsaw is a very special place for me. Here I was a mentor for a first time. Here I fell in love with Rails Girls even more. It was in 2014. At that time, I was very nervous to be a mentor. After workshops I wrote down all my thoughts about that. You can read them in article Rails Girls welcome back!. This year organizers, as always, surprised us with a beautiful place for a workshop and with new ideas...

Working remote

Working remote

For me, there are two types of remote work. Synchronic and asynchronic remote work. Synchronic remote work is work from different places but in the same time. For example I’m working from 9am to 5pm in Europe time zone. Second one - asynchronic remote work is when you are working from different places and in different times. So, it is possible to don’t have chance to talk with anyone through all day work.
