Introduce yourself!


(Juste) #1

Come to say hi and tell a little bit about yourself.

We would love to know you better! Who are you? What do you do? What do you care about? Where did you hear about Rasa? What are you building or would like to build?

Feel free to keep it as short or as long as you like. We would love to hear from you! :wink:

I will kick this one off :slight_smile:

I am Juste (at some places you can also see my name written as Justina), a Developer Advocate at Rasa. My main mission is to make sure that developers have the best experience when using Rasa software, so I focus on developer education and growth of Rasa open source community. Before joining Rasa I used Rasa Stack as a developer - built some bots with it and made some educational content contributions.

I love seeing people building cool things and helping them overcome the obstacles they have, so always feel free to shoot me a message if you have any questions or issues with Rasa Stack or anything else you think I could help! :wink:


(Alexander Weidauer) #3

I’m Alex, one of co-founders and CEO of Rasa. Also excited to hear from you and learn about what chatbots and assistants our community is building! Outside of Rasa, I love great coffee (especially hand-brewed, fruity filter coffee) and travelling. :slight_smile:


(Linda ) #4

Hi there, I’m Linda, Rasa’s Head of Operations. I work on things like Rasa’s internal processes, our culture,… I’m excited to learn about your projects and about your successes and challenges with Rasa.

I’m based in Berlin but I have lived in different cities in Germany, in Prague and in Ottawa and like Alex, I love traveling and to explore new places. I also read a lot and I’m always happy about recommendations for good books :slight_smile:

(Audun Gulbrandsen) #8

Greetings! I am Audun. I’m studying for a master’s degree in media and interaction design at the University of Bergen, Norway. I enjoy exploring all kinds of new technology, and this summer I’m trying to learn how to use Rasa Stack. First time I heard about Rasa, was at the “mcb tech .18” conference in Media City Bergen. I want to use the Rasa technology to build great community service chatbots.

Besides chatbots, I’m especially interested in projects involving VR, AR, Raspberry Pi, OpenCV, and 3D printing. I also enjoy being outdoors, hiking in the mountains :slight_smile:

(Palash Vishwas Karmore) #10

Hi Everyone! I am Palash. I am an ML engineer at a consultancy firm at Pune, India. I started working on Rasa stack to replace the LUIS based bot used by my company and then I got hooked up. Most of my time is spent on learning new technologies and watching random science videos on youtube. Some of my favorite Youtube channels are Mark Rober, Cody’sLab, SmarterEveryDay, Vsauce, Veritasium, Physics Girl and many more. My goal is to have an impact on society through revolutionary innovation (pocket size nuclear fusion reactor like revolutionary :wink:) and eat chicken Momos(South Asian dumpling).

(Asokolow) #15

Hey there, I’m Alex, I’m working as a R&D engineer in a research center in Belgium (Multitel). I’ve been working for 7 years as a speech processing engineer (recognition and enhancement). I also worked in other fields like biomedical signal processing and image processing. I discovered RASA 6 months ago and I really enjoy it! It is the best way to design an assistant where Internet is a restricted resource (my main specification). In my spare time, I play Rugby and love playing competitive video games! See you soon on the chat …

I got interested in these kind of bot stuff due to some papers I read about Question answering then I my boss found Rasa and challenged me to implement the bot using Rasa so here I am.
