One day with Tamara

Hello! My name is Tamara González. I’m a Jr Full Stack Developer at Clovr Labs and this is: “One day with me”.

💭 When and how did you decided you wanted to become a programmer?

I’ve always had an interest in programming but never felt brave enough to pursue it. Two years ago I finally made the decision to take a career break and go for it.

🪄 What is the best advice you have ever been given and from whom?

“Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes”. I received this as a handwritten note in my welcome package from Clovr Labs, and it seems obvious but for me it was quite and eye-opener. I knew back then I was in the right place 🙂

🏆 What is your definition of success?

Aiming to be the best version of myself in all aspects of life, while maintaining my health and inner peace. 

🥱 What are your limits when programming? When you realize you shoukd go to sleep?

While working remotely, I try to maintain a healthy work/life balance by following a strict schedule. However, there are times when it becomes difficult to keep track of time, and the sign to stop is when my eyes start to water or my stomach growls. 

💻 Can anyone be a programmer?

Anyone can learn programming, but certain skills can make the process easier and contribute to success as a programmer. Having a genuine interest in programming is also important to stay motivated and committed to learning. It also often requires a lot of patience as solving complex problems can be challenging. 

💭 Do programmers dream of images made of code?

Not images but sometimes I have suddenly woken up with an idea or solution for an unfinished or stuck task.

🥷 As a programmer, what are some of the things people assume you know but don’t?

To fix any computer-related problem, including hardware. 

❤️ What is your favorite emoji?


🧘 How do you relax after a long day at work?

I’m a basic one for this: a walk by the beach, a beer in a sunny terrace, cooking a yummy meal. 

🎶 What kind of music do you listen while you work?

Hans Zimmer and other similar OSTs for quiet and focused moments, chill house for a more upbeat mood. 

🧑‍💻 If you could only code in one language for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I’m too young to make that choice yet 🤓
