The whole lechon

I'm Adrienne Braganza Tacke, a proud Filipina and 90s kid.

Originally from California, I've also spent some time in Baguio City, Philippines.

Eventually, I found myself back on the west side of America and settled in Las Vegas, Nevada for college.

Defecting from the "natural" path of nursing, I found that technology fascinated me much more and chose to major in Management Information Systems. While working towards my degree at UNLV, I also worked as a student technician for UNLV's Office of Information Technology. This job paved the way for me to discover a software engineering internship that would serve as the start of her career. I also met my future husband while working this job!

After almost 8 years as a software engineer, I've worked in various industries like higher education and healthcare as well as several Las Vegas startups. Now, I focus on writing, speaking, teaching, and sharing my love of software engineering to all!
