Friday at Vinci’s with Emoke Zimmerman
Emoke Zimmerman has been a Facebook friend for 4 years but we’d never met face to face. Last week we met at Vinci’s Caffe for coffee and a chat.
Emoke is a partner in The Redezinist a company that specializes in cloud based solutions. In the late 1990’s Emoke was a mathematics and physics teacher at a high school in Budapest.
She obtained her Masters and worked as a Project Manager, Software Developer and Test Co-ordinator for Ericsson, Vodaphone, T-Mobile from 2000 to 2005.
Six years ago Emoke moved to Vancouver with her husband and twin daughters. Not knowing anyone, Emoke turned to the internet to discover what was happening in Vancouver and to reach out using social media channels like Facebook, twitter and linkedin.
Emoke is a loyal Apple fan. She has an iPhone, an iPad and like the true tech pioneer she is, she’s been wearing her iPod mini on her wrist for about 4 years. The device doesn’t connect to the internet, it tells time, stores photos, music and books.
It was an exciting 2 hours – two women geeks talking about technology and how it’s affected our lives.
