My life motto : “Hack things better »
When I joined 909c as a Hacker Technologist, after studying Computer Science during 5 years, I was drawn into the Graph, surrounded by Social Design, Algorithms and programming objects, seeking for optimized solutions. Since then, I have never gotten out of it.

Learning and curating everyday about Technology, Design and Social Medias, I’m currently a Creative Technologist, exploring and thinking about new digital & social experiences.
I prototype and design UI, IxD and UX for users through a Social Design approach. I define myself as a hacker because I love to find the breach in our daily life, break things and cracking them with new ideas in order to improve systems.
I fell into the Graph in 2010 when joining 909c agency, and I’m now floating into nodes and connections, trying to organize them into better experience for people.

Tasha Carl

After my studies in Electronic Engineering and  Industrial Computer Science,  I started my career in a R&D department designing a remote surveillance and access control system. Over the years however, my projects became more “classic” and by and by, I left the hardware domain and concentrated entirely on software development, traveling from the C++ “Old World” to the new Java continent. After years enjoying XML configuration files with Struts, Hibernate, Spring and J2EE applications, I finally specialized myself in Java EE 6.

Today, I work as Information System and Java Architect, as Technical Manager, as Java Developer or as Trainer, having my main emphasis on Java Enterprise Edition 6 technologies. Occasionally, I speak at conferences.  I’m organizing the Brussels Java User Group and the Random Hacks of Kindness Belgium event. I’m currently also member of the DEVOXX team and also do a lot of “Robotics for Kids” workshops for the Greenlight For Girls foundation.

Despite of my passion for Java, I still am very connected to more industrial ICT, electronics and low-level programming (Embedded Technologies, Ardiuno, NAO robots, Lego Mindstorm, C/C++ and much more).
