Being a DevOps/SysAdmin totally rocks. Being a developer rocks!. Being a Vue Vixen rocks my socks. But why?, don't we all suffer at some point? - probably on a daily basis. I am often seen arguing with my computer and also cheering when things work. It hasn't changed since day one. You won't see a lot of swanky things but here i share my projects and all the reasons that make me love doing what i do! ๐Ÿ’œ

The touch of the "master's" hand in a tough tech world

Have you ever thought how much of an impact you may have on someone else's life?. If we were more aware of the positive influence we can have on others, perhaps things could be a bit different... what if we started paying more attention to those little things that matter in the end?

2018 Vue Vixens retrospective and 2019 roadmap

Itโ€™s been a whirlwind year in our community, as we have built it from nothing at the beginning of the year, formally launched it in February 2018, and grew it into an exciting, vibrant group of passionate women developers and allies in a very short period of time.

Meet Vue Vixens

Itโ€™s my great honor and pleasure to formally introduce to the world a program, project, and community, Vue Vixens! We are also very happy to launch this new blog, kindly hosted by our friends at Dev.to!

Unsung Heroes of Vue: Diana Rodriguez

The Vue community is made up of over 122,000 stars (literally), and this series provides interviews with developers who are working across the world to make the Vue community a better place. In this article, we continue our focus on Vue Vixens with a conversation with Diana Rodrรญguez.

Community Work

These are the projects/initiatives/organisations i am involved with.

Vue Vixens Worldwide Community Organiser

Vue Vixens is an initiative founded by Jen Looper, Developer Advocate at Progress, that creates and hosts workshops to teach Vue.js to under-represented people in a cool and fun way. It is based on the successful model pioneered by Shmuela Jacobs for the Angular community (ng-girls.org) who was in turn inspired by the Rails Bridge and Django Girls initiatives. The format involves self-driven code labs completed in a workshop format in groups with mentoring by conference-goers and speakers who volunteer to help. The goal of the program is to familiarize women and those who identify as such with Vue.js in a supportive and inclusive environment. We also help conferences organize their diversity initiatives such as offering free conference tickets, and are building a scholarship fund to help offset those attendees' conference costs so that they can more easily attend. Questions? Contact us at info@vuevixens.org
