Awwwards Conference 2015 - Divya Manian from Adobe
Divya studied Computer Engineering in Singapore. She abandoned her comfortable first career choice as a device driver developer at Motorola to become in-house designer at a startup and later go freelance. In the throes of a quarter-life crisis, she decided to pursue web technologies with single-minded devotion, leading to collaborative projects such as HTML5 Boilerplate, HTML5 Please, Move the Web Forward, and more.
At Opera she spent her time advocating web technologies while being involved in spectacular fishpond scandals. She spent her non-work hours writing one book and a chapter of another that benefit Against-Malaria Foundation and Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (so buy her books!)
She then joined the Adobe Web Platform team, where she helped organize W3Conf, helped webplatform.org go live, and made CSS features available in browsers. She now works on tools to help the modern web designer.
