Whoa, what a day so far! We've welcomed three incredible international speakers, each visiting Australia for the first time, and joining them will be Evangelina Ferreira!
She's a designer, professor and speaker. She works at the National Technological University in Argentina and as freelance web developer. Evangelina will be on stage educating us on realistic and smooth animations with a little bit of physics in our CSS in her talk — Newton meets CSS.
We asked her a few questions to help get to know her better.
Is this your first trip to Melbourne? Or Australia? Do you have other plans for your trip?
Yes, it is my very first time in Australia! Besides CSSConf I'm looking forward to visiting the Zoo and the Eureka Tower :)
What does your usual work day look like?
I wake up pretty early (like 6 a. m.) and once I get coffee I attend University where I study Multimedia and Interaction Design. On afternoons, I work at the National Technological University of Argentina, where I teach Web Design to beginners and advanced professionals.
Who in the industry consistently blows you away with incredible work?
Lea Verou definitely! She's a role model, her work in CSS is outstanding since she has proven how this language can surprise us every day. Another developer I admire is Sara Soueidan, whose work about SVG was mind-blowing.
Have you worked in industries other than the web?
Yes, I currently do some Web Marketing work like managing Facebook accounts and Adwords campaigns.
Clearly, you've reached a certain point in your career (because you're with us!), where do you aspire to get to from here?
I'd like to participate a little on the CSS Working Group, write more articles and I'd love to give more talks. Hopefully, some day I'll be able to organize a CSSConf in Argentina to join all the people that love CSS in my country.
Do you skydive, knit, play the banjo, cycle or do anything that isn't on a computer?
I read a lot to get away of computers for a while. My favorite authors are Stephen King and J. K. Rowling.
Evangelina and 15 other wonderful speakers will be at CSSConf AU, will you?
