More about Jessica Engström:
Jessica Engström is a true geek, she got married with a Star Trek wedding and she never misses a superhero movie or a chance to point out that Marvel is the better comic company.
She is an achievement junkie and a game is not finished until she got them all, but as a Microsoft fan girl it is of course only Xbox achievements that counts.
When Windows phone came out she was the first girl in line in Scandinavia, which began a trip down the rabbit whole where she discovered the wonderful world of Windows phone, UX and Blend.
Ever since Windows Phone and Windows 8 got released she has been working in the community, delivering presentations and running her user group Coding After Work (together with her husband Jimmy) which lead to that she became a member of MEET (Microsoft Extended Expert Team) and, soon after, a Windows Platform Development MVP.
She blogs at www.catoholic.se which kinda shows her love for cats... and pink.. mostly pink.
