Charlie Gerard is a software developer at ThoughtWorks in Sydney. She is passionate about creative coding and building interactive prototypes mixing science, art and technology. She also spends time giving back to the community by mentoring new developers, contributing to open-source projects and speaking at events.

We first talked about her early career in Marketing and as a Digital Producer and segwayed into the Bootcamp that started her programming career. We discussed formal education, university degrees, bootcamps and imposter syndrom. We then touched on the many side-projects that she nurtures, from brain sensors to motion control, connected ink and much more. We finally spoke about her learning strategies and how she motivates her for doing so much.
