About the author

Alica Freund has a lot of experience with tech beginnings. She studied in Košice, Slovakia but started her career in Prague, Czech Republic. First she started as a Scrum Master, and then again as a software developer. During this transition she found out that even the degree from Computer Science and two years spend in one office with developers are often not enough to get an interview for a junior developer position.

The experience she gained until then and the advice from friends who worked as developers kept her optimistic. However, she wondered how much harder it could be for a tech novice without such experience and network. That inspired her to start the (re)starts in tech podcast where tech people in various career stages could share stories of their beginnings.

Alica works as a .NET developer. After work, she writes a blog, lifts kettlebells and goes to concerts.
