Estefannie Explains It All answering 20 Tech & Coding Q’s
This is a series I have running, I’ll be featuring different #techygrammer [IG] or #techygrammer[articles] asking questions and sharing it with you guys !
This weeks participant is Estefannie aka @Estefanniegg
My name is Estefannie and I like to make things in my kitchen and put it on YouTube.
I am also an embedded apps software engineering lead.
&& she's very good at it! You should checkout her YouTube account its 🔥
Onto the Q&A:
- Favorite application phone &/or desktop
Snapseed!! Recently found it and love it for editing photos on the go in my phone.
- Favorite tech item
I guess it is no secret that I love a Raspberry Pi with some Arduino on the side. I am also ready to explore boards, sensors, and continue to make things.
- Most frequented website
Amazon and eBay. I spend a lot of time looking for components for my builds.
- Must have device
With me? My phone. I am also getting to know and getting used to my Google home. I have noticed how lazy I am becoming thanks to it when I complain about doing things manually. Like starting a timer. Ugh! Such nuisance.
- Must have software
Well, that depends on what I am doing. I think Pixelmator is super cool and cheap for what you get. Also Spotify. Spotify everywhere.
- Favorite OS phone
Android, hands down.
- How were you introduced to programming?
On my first day of my first computer science class. It was in C++ and we wrote ‘hello world’. I was not impressed.
- What did you major in?
Computer Science with a Mathematics minor
- You build awesome automation’s with raspberry Pi (check it out here), were you introduced into building smart objects from work or just a hobby ?
Thank you!!! Definitely as a hobby but got inspired by people at work who majored in electrical engineering.
- Favorite Back-end language ?
It depends on what I am building.
- What editor do you use ?
- Go to snack when coding ?
In the morning, I like peanut butter and toast and in the evenings, popcorn.
- Track-pad or mouse ? Mouse.
- Touch or mechanical keyboard ?
Mechanical Keyboard. Cherry switches brown or blue.
- Standing or sitting desk ?
Sitting, I am lazy.
- Coffee / tea / soda / water ?
Coffee in the mornings and then tea in the afternoons. Water all the time.
- Chrome or Firefox ? Chrome.
- Music or silence ?
Both. It depends on what I am doing. If I am alone or in a quiet environment I don’t mind the silence. But if it gets too loud around me I need to tune it out with music. I also listen to movies while doing mindless tasks.
- eBooks or text books ?
Books! I love reading before going to bed. Mostly science fiction. Any Michael Crichton.
- Video or documentation ?
Videos! YouTube all the way.
