Hello 👋

Anita Amini

My name is Anita Amini and I’m a Software Engineer in London. I love learning, climbing and deep conversations.

My favourite thing is to learn, in order to live life intentionally. My second favourite thing is to distill that information and share my experience with others; hence this blog 😀.

I work at a UK-based online pharmacy startup called Echo, which delivers prescriptions free of charge. I write in the programming languages Go and Javascript. Prior to that, I was working in the blockchain space, building applications on Ethereum.

The Curious Bunch

I organise a monthly meetup for the kind and curious, you can sign up to hear about future events here.

Fun Facts

  • I was born in Iran 🇮🇷, we later moved to London when I was 10

  • The best places I’ve visited:
    • Torres del Paine (Patagonia) in Chile 🇨🇱
    • Hakone in Japan 🇯🇵
    • Los Roques in Venezuela 🇻🇪
    • Bryce Canyon and Zion Park in USA 🇺🇸
    • Weligama and Mirissa in Sri Lanka 🇱🇰
  • Superpower – picking up new skills and habits fast:
    • Secured my first coding job 7 months after I started learning to code
    • Broke into the blockchain space by learning about it in my spare time
    • Went from not reading at all until the age of 21, to becoming a book worm
