Hello beings of the universe, 🖖

My name is Mariana Meireles[she/her]. Welcome to my professional website with sprinkles of personal me.

I'm a software engineer @Anaconda, an open source advocate and an activist for kindness. I'm doing lots of Python, Javascript and WASM lately and I'm very excited about the impact we can make on education and the democratization of software through the PyScript project. If you're interested in talking to me about any of the things you spot here in this website, please feel free to reach out, check the "Community" session or schedule a call with me.

I'm also a Jupyter distinguished contributor, a member of the Jupyter Widgets steering council and the NumFOCUS DISC committee.

I'm driven by meaning and I find a lot of significance and love in libre software and the internet and I love to work with it. The concept of liberating knowledge and nurturing cultural and scientific development deeply resonates with many of my personal goals and working towards making the digital world more accessible and comfortable for all is a very fulfilling mission to me.

Some geeky things I enjoy are: forms of governance and organization, doing art with code(specially when using deeplearning) and thinking about how to solve world problems with the help of technology and social sciences.

Right now I'm thinking a lot about how to improve open source communities and I'm looking for help and input. You can find my ideas here, if you want to talk about them, get in touch or if you have something you'd like to add, open a PR.

In case you're interested, here are some other things I think are relevant, but not all and I don't necessarily rank them in the same order of importance. I also have an non exhaustive list of tech pet projects.

If you're a recruiter looking to get in touch with me please check the requisites and have a sit in the waiting room. I'll come talk to you as soon as I can.

Feel free to look around!



    * Medium (professional articles)


I'm in these places, but really, just send me an email or better yet, let's meet IRL!

I'm available for an asynchronous chat here mariana@psychonautgirl.space and for a synchronous one here.


I found out the way I learn the best is by having the support of a community. Do you want to learn something together? Just shoot me a message with your availability and what you'd like to tackle together.

Social injustice fighting

How can you make a difference?


For absurd legal reasons, doctors in Germany are not allowed to post factual information on abortions on their websites. Other websites are allowed to post this information, though. Frag Den Staat is currently providing resources on the subject in German, English and Turkish.

Be excellent to each other.
