Liz Karaffa here. I’m new to Zao and the programming world. Honestly, I’m still dumbstruck at how I landed such an amazing opportunity. It all started with a good friend doing some codeacademy.com at my house and showing me what he was up to. That got me curious and before I knew it, I was 30 lines deep in HTML. After Justin caught wind that I had dipped my toe in the water, we started a discussion that led to me being here!
Other than that, I’m busy chasing after my daughter who is turning one year old next week (gasp…they do grow up so fast!). I’m having the time of my life with my amazing husband who is in the thick of getting his MBA while working full time as the sales and development manager at a local coffee roastery. Ironically, I don’t like coffee very much but I have a sneaking suspicion I might not be able to hold out much longer. Justin did get me on Twitter after years of resistance, but I’ll be much harder to switch to Apple.
I already feel very welcomed into the community and I look forward to getting to know you all as time goes on. Feel free to reach out and say hi. Until next time, cheers!
