My name is Flora Barriele, I have an MSc in Computer Science from the University of Paris. I worked for 6 years as an IT operations engineer in a big telecommunication company. I then moved to Switzerland to start working for the local government as an Oracle Database administrator and I am hooked since then ! I love learning and also enjoy sharing. I am commited to encourage women in technology, inspire more girls to work in IT and promote diversity.
So Flora, a few more questions:
- Who are you?
You’re part of the Oracle Community, what’s your favourite part of being in the Oracle Community? I like meeting people who won’t roll their eyes if I want to talk about technology at 11pm I enjoy reading interesting articles written by passionate people who want to help each other. And I like having fun at conferences !
What do you do in your spare time? I am involved in the organisation of a meetup called Geek Girls Carrots in Geneva, which aims at attracting and promoting women in science and technology.
