Smita Mitra, Developer
Developer | Programmer | Java

What’s your background?
A programmer forever and always! I have been programming in some language or the other since I was 12 , so I took it up a notch with a degree in IT and made it my profession. I have worked on fresh developments as well as supporting legacy softwares and loved the challenges involved in both.

Describe your role at Difrent
I am a backend software developer currently working with the NHS Jobs team. Java is my main skill but looking forward to exploring new options as well.

Who are you outside of Difrent?
I am wife to a football worshipper and mother to a 16 month old (adjectives are open to the imagination of the reader). I love cooking new recipes and trying out new food (sea food are my favourites). When I am not cooking or eating or running after my active boy, I love cozying up for a movie or planning our next holiday(s) as I love travelling with my family!

Who would you invite to dinner, dead or alive?
Satyajit Ray and Hayao Miyazaki at the same table as I listen silently to their conversation.
