About

hello there
  • developer at heart with a passion for community building and marketing
  • building things mainly in Java, Javascript, Python
  • love data-based softwares and making data useful

My name is Attila Toth, I’m a developer advocate and I live in Szeged, Hungary.

Since the age of 13-14 I was passionate about coding and building things. My first programming language was Turbo Pascal because that was the first programming book I was able to get from the local bookstore. Then I quickly switched to Java and then later on Python and JavaScript. I did a lot of different projects throughout secondary school - android applications, flask web apps, test automation, web scraping etc…

Then, when I started university in 2017 I also founded a price intelligence software startup - helping e-commerce businesses price better - which I worked on for 2 years. I built 80% of the codebase but I also dived deep into marketing to help get the first few customers to use our platform. Unfortunately this company didn’t work out as we imagined but it was an awesome journey and I learnt a lot. I decided to pursue a career in developer relations because I realized I have an equal love for programming and community building as well. And in DevRel I get to practice both of those things everyday.

Currently I work at Zyte as a developer evangelist (100% remote), advocating for developers, creating content, writing docs and engaging with the developer community.
