Marzia Deodato

Software Developer at Barclays

Glasgow, United Kingdom

Originally from Italy, I am the first generation in my family to go to University. Since I was kid, I excelled at school and my family supported me to continue my studies. I moved to Scotland to study at the University of Glasgow. I started my studies in Business & Economics and soon realised I wanted to engage in a more technical field. I learnt on my own how to code and changed my degree into Computing Science. I am working now as a Software Developer. My technology skillset goes from web development, mobile development to data science, Big Data and the Cloud. I love getting involved in technology related events and finding out about the latest trends. I am an organiser at Google's Developers Group Glasgow and Google's Women Techmakers Scotland. I am a #IamRemarkable Workshop facilitator and I am passionate about career development and helping women in technology thrive in their journey. I am part of the Women in Technology Committee at Barclays, I organise events to empower women in the workplace and young students. I am mentoring a student in her career into tech. My motto is "Embrace the Enormity of the Possible". I love to inspire others in embracing opportunities you would have never thought of before.

#IamRemarkable Workshop

#IamRemarkable is a Google initiative empowering women and other underrepresented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond. In this interactive session participants will learn the importance of self-promotion in their personal and professional life. Participants will be invited to challenge the social perception around self-promotion by completing a self-assessment exercise and engaging in discussions. I will provide research and facts about the importance of self-promotion and the appropriate tools to master this skill.

Hola & Hello World - a comparison between spoken languages and programming languages

As a foreigner in Scotland and speaking four languages, I soon came across the correlation between spoken languages and programming languages as I started my journey in learning how to code. In this talk, I will analyse the similarities and differences spoken languages and programming languages have. Among these, syntax, semantics, morphology, rules. It’s important to understand this correlation in fields such as machine translation, speech recognition, speech synthesis, text mining, grammar checking, and information retrieval.

Big Data, Tools and the Cloud

Big Data, Cloud, they sound like those typical buzzwords in technology. You might have heard of Big Data referring to the enormous amount to data you produce when you go on the Internet.

What if I told you that every minute 5.7 million Google searches happens, and Amazon has $283,000 in sales per minute. Pretty great numbers, but how can these big numbers be useful?

In this presentation you’ll find out what defines big data, the sources of big data, what tools are involved to handle data and make sense of it, and the role of the cloud in making this data accessible.
