Ann Mwangi


I am a Software Developer who likes to contribute to open source projects, speaking at conferences and writing about my experiences both in the personal life and at work. 

I have been a mentor with different groups like Rails girls and I love working with young people who are keen to work in IT, coaching and facilitating sessions for them. 

I dislike being stagnant in life and thus keeps seeking for opportunities to grow both as a person and employee.

One of the best parts of my role is working with my team and helping clients come to grips with challenging problems.
