About

I am Marcia Villalba, a software engineer ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป from Uruguay ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡พ living in Helsinki ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ. I have been working over 10 years in the IT industry, doing all kind of things related to software development. I am part of the 1% of hispanic women in computer science, a minority in the minorities.

Nowadays I work as an AWS Developer Advocate, helping developers bring their ideas to life in the cloud. Also, I am one of the main organizers of the conference Serverless Days Helsinki (https://helsinki.serverlessdays.io/).

Before I worked as a Full Stack developer at Rovio and also I have my own consultancy company (https://unicorn.codes) Unicorn.codes ๐Ÿฆ„, where I was helping companies to migrate to serverless either by providing education or by providing actual hands-on solutions.

Coding and sharing with others are my passion. I love learning new things and tinkering with different technologies and frameworks.

Because of that I host my Youtube channel called FooBar (http://bit.ly/foobar-youtube), in which I publish at least one new video every week. At FooBar, I focus on teaching how to use AWS serverless technologies and managed services.

In addition, I have published lots of Serverless courses ๐Ÿ“šin English ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง and Spanish ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ.

Before joining AWS, I was an AWS Serverless Hero (https://aws.amazon.com/heroes/), Serverless Champion (https://serverless.com/community/champions/) and one of the organizers at the Finland AWS User Group (https://www.meetup.com/awsfin/).
