Hi! My name is Gergana,
but I usually go by Gery because that's a bit easier to pronounce. I am a South African software developer, adventurer and Star Wars geek extraordinaire.
I am a Microsoft MVP
in Windows Development, due to my community contributions to the Internet-of-Things.
I work at Caura.
In my spare time I do quite a bit of research in web and IoT, and more specifically the convergence of these two technologies. You can check out some of my personal projects on GitHub.
The project I am most proud of is the lightsaber I built
I documented the whole process and you can see it in this GitHub repo.
I love speaking in community, below you can see some of my more recent talks:
So you wanna build a lightsaber?
