Why do I have this page?

I found myself having to repeatedly talk about my background and why I started CodeChix. So, I finally decided to create a very basic page and point people to it.

What I like to do and some work background:

I like to tinker with software + hardware, build things that solve my daily problems. I also like to work with and educate/promote/mentor women software developers (See why I started CodeChix). I've been a software dev for over 2 decades with experience spanning Cellular/Optical Networks, Network Mgmt, Firewalls, System Admin, Element Management (Video Encoding), Linux etc.
