Interview with Geek Diva: Damana Madden

Our next episode of the Conversations with Annie & Kate is up now. This time our guest was a long time friend of mine, Damana Madden. Apart from having the coolest headphones, Damana has diverse experience working across many industries as a software engineer, and has some strongly held opinions (yet is open to reason). She founded Girl Geek Dinners in Australia/New Zealand and describes herself as:

“Ex-Thoughtworks. Ex-Microsoft. Ex-compliant.”

This episode (and all the others) are available on our YouTube channel and your favourite podcast apps.
