Nadia Makarevich

G'day, I'm Nadia! I am a frontend architect, coder, writer, and educator.

I used to work at Atlassian, where I had a chance to be exposed to completely different types of frontend development in various teams, including Atlaskit, Jira Navigation team, Jira Ops team, Jira Frontend Platform team. The last one was responsible for the architecture, builds, deploys, and best practices of the entire Jira frontend repository (millions of lines of code now!). So that was fun times 😅.

After the joys and challenges of working for big tech, three years ago I decided to gain a completely different perspective and joined a small startup called Pyn as a Founding Engineer.

Over the past few years, while writing this blog, I've also spoken at conferences throughout the world, from Europe to Australia: React Summit in Amsterdam, CODEstantine in Belgrade and ReactConf in Sydney, to name a few.

In summary, when it comes to React, I think I can safely say that I've seen it all.
