Astrid de Gaste

Astrid has been programming in Go for over two years as part of her first job in Tech. She comes from a background of mechanical engineering but has found a real passion for software engineering.

She is moving to a company that codes in Python soon and hopes to convert them to the joys of Golang. She's also a keen advocate of women in programming, trying to help as many women as possible get this field.

Alice Cheung

Alice uses Go to fight crime with Ravelin, an online fraud detection company. She’s always been a full time geek, but only became a full stack engineer following a career change in 2017.

When she’s not trying to break things at work, she can be found tinkering with Angular apps, providing marginal gains on a quiz team and on occasion, running for fun.
