About

Hi, I’m Ellen! I work with developer relations at Garden.

I love writing and speaking, and sometimes I dabble on YouTube as well. In addition, I’ve published the most comprehensive Go course in the Portuguese-speaking world.

I’m deeply involved with open source, more specifically Go and Kubernetes, and got my start in tech by working as an intern developer on Kubernetes’ SIG-CLI, thanks to Outreachy.

Currently I’m passionate about making multi-container systems easier and more accessible to develop in.

I identify as non-binary and use they/them/their pronouns.
