who are we?
the UmaHub story
Seventeen years ago, when I was 16, I fell in love
I fell in love with the freedom of expression, the power of creation and the liberty building software gave me. It blew my mind then, and has continued to do so ever since.
Ten years ago I got my first programming job. Then three years later I decided I wanted to move to Brazil, so I found a new job in a distributed team in an American company and off I went. Earning dollars and spending other (weaker) currencies was quite convenient :)
I spent a few years travelling. Just me, my laptop and a backpack... and a whole lot of adventures! :)
Working as a programmer remotely allowed me to travel, to live the life I wanted. It gave me the freedom I always treasured deeply. I was living the dream! When I decided to settle and give birth to a baby boy, on a wild mountain in Brazil (with no cell phone signal, but WITH wi-fi :) ) being a software developer allowed me to go back to work just 2 months after he was born without leaving him for hours a day. And allowed him to have his mummy near when he needed her the most.
I got to be a part of great teams of incredibly intelligent men and women where we created amazing things. We were the ones engineering the products that made work and life easier for so many people and that felt so good.
I got to be a speaker at tech conferences where I was able to share a bit of my knowledge and experience with many other developers, veterans, as well as beginners and at the end of every conference we would end up many friends richer than when we arrived.
Being a developer has given me a great life. And now I want to pass it on to you.. I want to teach you the technical skills, the human skills, the art and craft of working in a remote team and most importantly - to give you the confidence that you can do it too.
