Tell me more about HockeyGeekGirl Inc


Susan Ibach aka HockeyGeekGirl

Hi, my name is Susan Ibach (aka @HockeyGeekGirl). I am the head geek at HockeyGeekGirl Inc. My passion is helping others learn how to code!

I am a developer relations consultant, tech blogger and presenter.

As a developer relations consultant, I help companies building software for developers figure out how to get coders exploring and using their technology through evangelism, advocacy, and community programs. I also share my knowledge through my developer relations blog posts.

As far as my technical skills, these days I spend most of my time playing, presenting, and blogging about Python, Data science & AI.

Because I love to share my passions with others, I also blog about running.

I have 8 years experience in developer relation roles and 15 years experience as a technical trainer.

Whether you have an established developer relations program and you are exploring options to scale, or you are just looking to get started, I can help.

My experience includes

  • Managing national and international ambassador communities.
  • Sponsoring and organizing booth presence and API challenges at hackathons.
  • Organizing in person competitions, workshops, conferences, and hackathons.
  • Evaluating content for developer engagement
  • Creating videos, and online tutorials
  • Sponsoring and organizing presence at conferences
  • Presenting in person and online

I was awarded the Technology Innovator of the Year Award by Women in Communication and Technology Canada, 2016.

Sample list of my presentations, and content.

    I am a woman from the Netherlands, 54 years old and just starting with coding because I discovered I like it and find it very cool and challenging to try things out in Python. What I just needed is a good basis to start with and that’s just what the Microsoft introduction offers. I find it very inspiring and helpfull before I’m going to dive in the more complexer stuff of Python.
