AMA: I'm Manoela Ilic, Co-founder of Codrops
you might know me better under my pseudo "Mary Lou", the girl who publishes web experiments, occasional tutorials and UI effect inspiration over at Codrops. I started Codrops back in 2009 with my partner Pedro Botelho after we decided to become freelancers. From a mere hobby, Codrops has grown into a full-time job. I'm very happy that I can do the things I love and delight web developers who enjoy our work at the same time.
I studied Cognitive Science in Germany, where I grew up, and then Computational Logic in Portugal, where I'm most of the time. After my studies, and before becoming a freelancer, I worked in a software company in Germany for a year.
When I'm not in front of the screen, you'll find me trying out some new raw vegan recipes or taking care of my little herb garden.
A big thanks to the LayerVault team for inviting me: it's an honor to be part of one of your AMA sessions!
And now it's your turn to ask me anything :)
