Andrea Cardona

Chapter Director, Austin

Andrea Cardona

I am currently a full stack software engineer with a passion for bringing diversity to the programming community. After spending a few years in tech on the marking and sales side of San Francisco based startups, and working in media at VICE in NY - while focusing on LatinX and Latin America growth initiatives - I realized my passion really lied to make an impact within the Tech community. I wanted to help bridge the gap between the tech and LatinX worlds.

After attending the NYC Flatiron Full-stack Immersive program, I am now proud to say I am a full stack engineer at an Austin based startup, called Chipper. I am also an organizer for the Techqueria Austin Chapter and always looking to make tech more accessible to the LatinX community. I love helping others find a passion for programming and finding inspiration in others!

ℹ️About Techqueria

Techqueria is a 501c3 nonprofit that empowers Latinx professionals with the resources and support that they need to thrive and become leaders in the tech industry.

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