Hi, I'm Micaela Reyes

a Software Engineer based in Manila.

About Me

Hi! I'm Mickey. I have an insane love for tech and building things.

[Work]

I'm a software engineer with 10+ years experience. I've worked on telco systems, large-scale web applications, and various startup SaaS platforms. I specialize in Python and related technologies.

I currently work as a Python Coach and Consultant at CodeHappy.ph. If you're looking to build/grow your Python team through training and coaching , I can help. Let's talk.

[Community]

I consider myself a realist idealist. I like contributing to causes I care about in my small corner of the world in the most practical way I can.

I co-founded PythonPH in 2013, a volunteer-run programming community. I spend a lot of my free time as a volunteer doing admin, operations, coaching/mentoring the next gen leaders and organizing events for the community.

I also co-host a tech vlog called PyLokal where we explore Python and related technologies in the Philippines over coffee and peanut butter.
