Ester Beltrami

👋🏻 I'm Ester, a London-based web developer passionate about clean code, workplace culture, promoting inclusivity, and GraphQL. I work at Torchbox, where we develop and maintain the open-source content management system Wagtail. My focus is on building accessible and user-friendly websites and contributing to Wagtail.

I'm involved in organising PyCon Italia, where I contribute to the website and help plan the conference. I'm also a core developer of Strawberry GraphQL, which has given me the opportunity to explore my interest in GraphQL even further.

In my free time, I attend conferences and meet-ups to learn about new trends and connect with people who share similar interests. I enjoy exchanging ideas on various topics, such as clean code, new technologies, and creating a more inclusive workspace.

Check out my website - I'll be adding my talks there soon (hopefully, when I find some time) 😄


Breaking the Stereotype: Evolution & Persistence of Gender Bias in Tech
Ester Beltrami

Did you know that originally programming was a female-heavy field?
How did we get to the stereotype of the antisocial programmer (and therefore male)?

How the concept that good programmers appeared to have been “born, not made” is still affecting our tech industry and society.
