Curiosity and passion for reading, writing and computers: that’s what led me here.

My name’s Diéssica Gurskas and I’m a computer programmer with a heart full of art and code. I program computers to build software that helps people and to explore the wonders within the intersection of art and technology. As a Software Engineer, my focus is on the front-end.

Art inspires me in everything I do – that’s why, besides hacking, you may find me immersed in music, creative coding, writing, reading or photography. I also enjoy science, languages, nature and adventures.

In Words, not Keywords

I’m a simple person who strives for simplicity. Although based in Berlin, I grew up in Viamão – a modest town in Brazil where I first found out my love of building things on a computer.

As a kid, people remember me as curious and passionate about computers. Still am! Ever since I started coding to build pirate game servers, I’ve been intrigued about computers and how humans interact and express themselves with it.

Raised by the internet, I’ve been exploring the known and the unknown: I teach myself, experiment, have fun, and do or do not care in extreme ways. I simply push myself to do anything I set my mind to.

I deeply benefit from something I believe and fight for: open knowledge and freedom of information. I wish nothing but to everyone to be able to do what they love and feel empowered to explore radically as I do.
