About the instructors

Marlene Marques started at Sky in 2015 as a backend developer. Since then she worked in a set of different teams with roles that range from Developer to Scrum Master and now Solution Architect. She was the first person in the migration of a project of 40 people from London to Lisbon and will talk about the experience and challenges of migrating the development of projects with more than 20 years to a new team and bring the development processes to the 21st century.

Catarina Canto studied Biomedical Sciences in Universidade da Beira Interior. She soon realised it wasn’t her true passion and, after a small period of time working at a dead-end job, she decided to take a risk and join an intensive fullstack coding bootcamp, . Now she is happier than ever working as a backend developer at Asseco PST.
