Hi, I’m Nicola.

Welcome to my personal blog – a pet project where I share my learnings and experiences with you. Whether it’s through my job, side gigs, online courses, books, or conversations with others, I enjoy sharing what I learn (sometimes the hard way).

I created this website back in 2015 when I had to learn a new CMS (Episerver, now Optimizely) for my job. At the time, there weren’t many online resources available, so the geek in me decided to start this journey to share knowledge and experience.

Since then, I’ve moved into several roles, including Solution Architecture as well as Product Strategy. I aim to continue to promote knowledge sharing.

If you have any comments or questions about the ideas I write about, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment on the post. Alternatively, feel free to send me a personal message. Thank you for visiting my blog, and I hope you learn something new here!
