Estefannie Explains It All answering 20 Tech & Coding Q’s

Hey,

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:

  1. Favorite application phone &/or desktop
    Snapseed!! Recently found it and love it for editing photos on the go in my phone.
  2. 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.
  3. Most frequented website
    Amazon and eBay. I spend a lot of time looking for components for my builds.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Favorite OS phone
    Android, hands down.
  7. 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.
  8. What did you major in?
    Computer Science with a Mathematics minor
  9. 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.
  10. Favorite Back-end language ?
    It depends on what I am building.
  11. What editor do you use ?
    Sublime.
  12. Go to snack when coding ?
    In the morning, I like peanut butter and toast and in the evenings, popcorn.
  13. Track-pad or mouse ? Mouse.
  14. Touch or mechanical keyboard ?
    Mechanical Keyboard. Cherry switches brown or blue.
  15. Standing or sitting desk ?
    Sitting, I am lazy.
  16. Coffee / tea / soda / water ?
    Coffee in the mornings and then tea in the afternoons. Water all the time.
  17. Chrome or Firefox ? Chrome.
  18. 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.
  19. eBooks or text books ?
    Books! I love reading before going to bed. Mostly science fiction. Any Michael Crichton.
  20. Video or documentation ?
    Videos! YouTube all the way.
