Even though Tainara had always been passionate about technology, she initially chose to pursue a career in finance. After completing her MBA, she got a demanding job in corporate finance. However, her interest in technology never faded, and one day Tainara realized her corporate career wasn’t fulfilling her. So, she took the brave decision to quit her job, go back to college to study technology and start over fresh.
Tainara first came across Developer Circles Porto Alegre in the summer of 2016 at college. Initially, it was just a group of three people, but as they started reaching out to other friends at different university groups and communities, the circle quickly grew into a community of 500 developers. Her passion for technology and community inspired Tainara to become a Lead for Developer Circles Porto Alegre. She has organized a number of meetups exploring Facebook Open Source tools and Bots for Messenger, and is busy preparing for the next event focused on React Native.
Tainara sees great potential for her circle. She is developing a busy program of events and workshops, strengthening partnerships with local tech experts and start-up accelerators, and attracting even more talented developers to Developer Circles Porto Alegre.
