During this interview we discuss the challenges of parenthood, how I used intuitive writing to create the first book of Zerus & Ona, and how to bring up our kids with the right technical mindset.
Burnout. I’ve been there. And it’s not fun.
It was actually one of the reasons that made me quit my career as an architect. Back in 2012 we were working on a competition for a school at the office. And it was happening again: we were running late. But this time, it was the worst time ever and I ended up hitting the deadline after working 48 hours straight.
Two years ago I was lying on the couch with my husband. It was late at night. And our four-months-old baby didn't want to sleep, as usual. We were sooooo sleep deprived. Horrible place to be, trust me.
In 2015 I attended the EuRuKo Conference in Salzburg, where a friend of mine gave a Lightning Talk. I remember him preparing his slides while sitting next to me and I thought "Wow, that's such a cool thing to do!".

I started to work as a programmer when I was 30 years old. Ever since I have been either programming, or teaching others about it. But I didn't get into computer science easily. Back in college I studied architecture instead and here's why.
We never know when the day starts. It all depends on how the night was. However once it does, I finally found a rhythm that we can follow, that allows me to spend lots of time with little boy and at the same time gives me space to work on Zerus & Ona.
