I am Marcia Villalba, a software engineer 👩💻 from Uruguay 🇺🇾 living in Helsinki 🇫🇮. I have been working for almost 20 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.
Before I worked as a Full Stack developer at Rovio and also I have my own consultancy company (https://unicorn.codes) Unicorn.codes 🦄, 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. Also I have a Spanish youtube channel (https://bit.ly/aws-esp-yt) and a podcast (https://aws-espanol.buzzsprout.com/) where I post regularly every week content on getting started in the cloud.
In addition, I have published lots of Serverless courses 📚in English 🇬🇧 and Spanish 🇪🇸.
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/).
