We invite you to a fireside chat with Latin@ senior engineers. It will be an informal discussion about their experiences with different technical languages/frameworks, as well as conversation on how they’ve navigated their careers. Whether you’re just starting out in tech or wondering how to take the next step towards career advancement, the conversation will have something for everyone. We’ll have plenty of time for Q and A.

All/allies welcome!

Panelists will include Victor Roman (Solar City), Kat Marchán (npm), and Adam Bossy-Mendoza (Patreon). Moderated by Kimberly Muñoz (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau).


Kat is a Puerto Rican software engineer currently with npm, Inc’s CLI team. She’s worked with a variety of languages, including Common Lisp, Erlang, and JavaScript, and is really interested in programming language theory and compilers. She’s also an experienced web developer who specialized in both JavaScript-heavy SPA frontends and distributed server architectures. These days, aside from her npm CLI work, she enjoys making homecooked Puerto Rican food and flan, and helping manage the community for queer people in tech.

Adam is a Mexican-American engineering manager and entrepreneur currently at Patreon. He has been working in Silicon Valley for 8 years. He is passionate about class mobility, identity, self-education and personal fulfillment.

Kimberly is a Mexican-American front-end developer and organizer of Latina in Tech meetups. Her interests include accessibility, helping make tech more inclusive and singing along to Selena albums. She currently works as a Technology and Innovation Fellow at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau where she works on making websites accessible and speedy for all.

Food and light drinks will be provided. We can grab drinks after the event at the ThirstyBear Brewing Company nearby. Also, attendees are expected to follow our code of conduct. Please see for details.

🌮About Techqueria

Techqueria is a 501c3 nonprofit that empowers Latinx professionals in the tech industry by building networking and career advancement opportunities.

Our mission is to provide the Latinx professionals in the tech industry with the resources and support that they need to attain, thrive, and remain in a career within the technology industry.

We build Latinx-centered spaces that revolve around career advice, technical talks, mentorship, open jobs, networking events, speaking opportunities, and open-source and we work with both employee resource groups (ERGs) and tech companies to comprehensively affect change in the tech industry.

Coming from all walks of life, we believe that the diversity of our community is the most reliable asset we have.

Our space aims to be inclusive so we invite Latinx from the regions of the Caribbean, Haiti, and Brazil as well as those who identify as Afro-Latinx, Asian-Latinx or LGBTQIA.

The term Latinx is used instead of Latino or Latina because it is a gender-neutral and inclusive term.

Ultimately, Techqueria's goal is to become the most powerful and robust professional network of Latinx professionals in the tech industry across the world.
