Catarna Campino For this humanist artist turned hustler, no idea is too big and no detail is too small. Learning all about everything is her profession, and having all kind of ideas is her vocation. She feeds on (intelligent) humor and is driven by (good) music. Reality is her arch enemy and she has NEVER left the playground. Trained as a visual artist, Catarina Campino has chosen to keep looking for HARDER BETTER FASTER STRONGER challenges and on her way to where she is now, working as <Head of Detail> at Lisbon’s New-Kid-In-Coding-Bootcamp-Town (www.academiadecodigo.org), she has been a producer, art critic, super hero, museum guide, personal assistant, scenographer, underdog, composer, make-up artist, curator, actress, teacher, b-girl, lazy bum, camera-woman, graphic designer, co-creator, ballerina, translator, mother, Hip Hop scholar, social media manager trainee and professional artist, among many other things. A recent awareness of the existence the amazing world of „code as an art form”, has driven her into trying to learn how to read, write (and think) like a natural-born dev(il). She is also currently eager to find time to go back to her daily Hip Hop dance classes, where she feels happy as can be.
Sandra Wolf Polish by birth, but Lisboeta by heart, Sandra works at JOBBOX.io managing sales. Her colleagues call her the Wolf of Lisbon. She also works with the tech incubator Startup Lisboa on International Partnerships and Startup Lisboa Accelerator. Sandra has a degree in Russian Philology, and is still fighting with Masters in Management, but work and startups are winning. Before discovering Portugal, Sandra worked in the UK on the hardware side, selling ruggedized and embedded computers, running marketing campaigns (for defence, medical, oil and gas, rail, marine sectors) and organizing overseas gaming exhibitions (G2E – Vegas). In Poland, she was once an actor and organizer at the Street Art Theatre festival ‚Feta’, as well as a model and stylist. Mixture of craziness and charm. Future coder.
Laughs loud and stays foolish, but hungry like a wolf. Her name suits her well.
