This is my little “corner” on the internet.
My name is Monica Messaggi Kaya and, at the moment, I am a Software Engineer that have many interests in life.
I have a design / webdesign inclination with experience in programming. I've kept myself current with the new technologies and trends, seeking training where needed and participating in events. My main interests lie in web and mobile applications as well as user experience.
Attention to details and focus on the projects that I've worked with helped me to build relations with project owners and users, facilitating many times the communications and the delivery of the requirements. I am an organised, creative, efficient and very adaptive person. I used to motivate groups to socialise and also to collaborate to each other on the work environment. I am a fast-leaner and I'm always willing to undertake further training to fulfil requirements and to progress in my career.
I believe in the magic of little things, a spice, a herb, a touch, a thought...
I'm finishing my MSc in Software Engineering, I've been in some very interesting courses, check it out!
