About the Translator
Sibylle Sehl is a Berlin-based Software Engineer.
Sibylle discovered Technology and Programming as more of a means to an end during her undergraduate degree. During a competition that centered on entrepreneurship, she discovered the fundamentals of Frontend Development, HTML and CSS, and how they allowed her to create things from scratch. Whilst still completing her business degree, she started studying in her own time and enrolled in a Programming Fundamentals Course. She was lucky enough to have the chance to intern in a few organizations that were either shaped by digital resources and a means of managing those or selling a digital product, allowing her to see work in Technology from the inside.
In 2016, she decided that Programming professionally was no longer a dream but something she wanted to pursue full-time and enrolled at The University of Edinburgh's MSc in Computer Science. This year was tough and very intense, especially since her peers had studied Computer Science beforehand. Fast forward to 2017 with a degree in the bag, she started working at Skyscanner as a Product Manager, where she first heard about React. While being a PM was insightful and incredibly rewarding, the lack of programming led her to reevaluate her career choice.
