I’m Kitty. I’m a Berlin-based non-binary trans frontend engineer with over a decade of experience, currently focused on accessibility, diversity and inclusion. In recent years, I have led engineering teams at both Gorillas and N26 for several years, and help scale up both companies. I am currently the VP of Engineering at Cofenster. For a longer version, read more about me.
I love writing, and have been sharing my thoughts—mainly about web development—on this blog for years. If you are looking for something specific, try the search. I also had the pleasure of hosting guest authors and would recommend you read their posts!

I used to be quite involved in open-source development. I have initiated and contributed to many projects, most of which about Sass or digital accessibility.

I enjoy participating in events and talking at conferences when I find the time. If you would like me to attend one of your events, feel free to get in touch! In the meantime, feel free to have a look at my past talks.
