Intro

Hi all, if you've joined recently you may have seen a welcome message from me in your inbox but I figured a great way to get to know folks here would be an intro thread. As we share Solace related knowledge and learn from each other, let's get to know each other!

Name or handle

(only share what you're comfortable with of course)

In real life I'm Trish Mermuys and you can find me on twitter @mermuys and LinkedIn if you want to connect with me there.

Location

Where in the world is...
I'm in Ottawa, Canada. Right now I'm working from home but normally I'm at Solace's headquarters here in Ottawa.

Job

I'm currently the Developer Content and Community Manager here at Solace. My job is to help make this community a thriving place where you can find other people who are as passionate, interested, and curious about Solace, PubSub+, Event Portal, and really anything related to event driven architecture.

For fun

Tell us about the fun story about your experience with Solace
For me it's not directly related to Solace software or the broker, but starting a new job in the midst of a pandemic. I had worked remotely before, but it was temporary (six months) and with a team of people that I already knew quite well and had great rapport with. I started with Solace in May when everything was pretty much shut down here in Ottawa. So I didn't get to meet any of my coworkers in person until last week. We just had restaurant outdoor patios open recently so I was able to join @hong and @Tamimi for some drinks and food and finally see them in real life! It was a great moment to get to know them even better, plus the beer tasted really good!


Now it's your turn! Comment below👇 and tell us a bit about yourself!

    Apart from Solace, I am also the Director of Community Engagement and Partnerships at a non-profit organization called Connected Canadians. We are involved with increasing digital literacy for older adults and teaching them how to use technology better. I am very passionate about our vision and what do to contribute back to the seniors community in Ottawa. You can check out our website to now more, and if you want to watch cute testimony videos of seniors talking about their experiences with technology (phones and computers)! 👵🏻👴

    I am an AVID gif user 😍 catch me pulling out a gif for literally any situation . You know how they say a picture is worth a 1000 words? Well I believe that a gif is worth 1001 words! I just feel like you can explain a situation or reflect how you feel without needing to type anything, ya know?! Here is a gif for ya'll
    party gif

    Now what is YOUR fav gif?? I accept gif challenges.
