Tell me more about HockeyGeekGirl

Susan Ibach aka HockeyGeekGirl

Hi, my name is Susan Ibach (aka @HockeyGeekGirl). My passion is helping others learn how to code!

I am the Head of Amazon Future Engineer Canada, leading the Amazon Future engineer program in Canada.

On my site you will find a variety of posts. Because I have spent many years in developer relations I share tips and tricks on how to be a technical advocate or evangelist through my developer relations posts.

As far as my technical skills, these days I spend most of my time playing, presenting, and blogging about Python, Data science & AI.

Because I love to share my passions with others, I also blog about running, by the end of 2021 I have run 16 marathons which has contributed to my resilience and ability to work through challenges.

My experience includes

  • Establishing and managing a national program working with non-profits to achieve shared goals
  • Managing national and international ambassador communities.
  • Sponsoring and organizing booth presence and API challenges at hackathons.
  • Organizing in person competitions, workshops, conferences, and hackathons.
  • Evaluating content for developer engagement
  • Creating videos, and online tutorials
  • Sponsoring and organizing presence at conferences
  • Presenting in person and online

I was awarded the Technology Innovator of the Year Award by Women in Communication and Technology Canada, 2016.

Sample list of my presentations, and content.

If you are interested in talking more about how we get the next generation of kids to code or you are interested in having me present at your event, reach out on Twitter or LinkedIn.

    I am a woman from the Netherlands, 54 years old and just starting with coding because I discovered I like it and find it very cool and challenging to try things out in Python. What I just needed is a good basis to start with and that’s just what the Microsoft introduction offers. I find it very inspiring and helpfull before I’m going to dive in the more complexer stuff of Python.
