Hi all! I'm Ania and I've been in IT for almost a decade as a QA. Recently I left my job to focus on learning Web Development more in depth and transition to a DEV job in the near future. Double challenge: I'm used to working remotely and would like to continue being a digital nomad when I go into development. Fingers crossed!

Hi Ania.
Did you always want to be a developer, or did you get the bug from meeting people in your QA roles?

I always wanted to code, learned a bit at uni, but didn't think I would enjoy a dev job. QA kept me happy for a long time though, but then I thought that I can work on my dev skills, start working as a dev and then decide if I want to stay or go back to QA:)
