Carmen Chung software engineer Sydney Australia

My Story


I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Laws (with Honors) from the University of New South Wales, before working internationally as a corporate lawyer for seven years.

In 2017, I discovered my passion for coding after being awarded the Women in Tech Scholarship to study at Coder Academy in Sydney, Australia. I am currently working as a full stack Software Engineer (Node & Vue.js) at CompliSpace.

My mission is to work collaboratively with others to solve real-world problems with fresh, creative tech solutions that follow industry best practices.

Engagements & Awards


In 2020, I was selected as a Finalist in the Rising Technologist category of the Booking.com Technology Playmaker Awards.

I am a big believer in sharing knowledge about engineering, product and design. I regularly write published blog posts, and have spoken at a number of large-scale tech conferences, including ReactAU (Sydney, 2020), RubyConf (Melbourne, 2020), APIDays (Melbourne, 2019), and DDDSydney (Sydney, 2019). In addition, I run a YouTube channel called Code Fights, where developers try to solve coding challenges within 15 minutes.

In my spare time, you can find me creating digital illustrations, reading fantasy novels, volunteering to build websites for charities through Vollie, teaching stretch classes, and fostering rescue dogs.
