Bio: Mercedes Rodríguez
Mercedes is a software developer, currently focused on developing Actions for the Google Assistant and chatbots for different platforms using Dialogflow. She is passionate about human-computer interaction and Voice User Interfaces, always trying to build the best conversational experiences, cause she truly believes that everything will be managed by voice in a not so far future. Since February 2019, she is a Google Developer Expert for Assistant. Previously, she has also worked as a teacher, as a translator specialized in localization, and as a web content editor, writing at many different blogs. She is a very curious person who loves to learn new things all the time. Right now, one of her main concerns is the lack of women in technology. That's why she is a co-organizer at GalsTech, a group trying to improve women visibility in the sector, in order to encourage more girls to choose technological careers by giving talks, and organizing meetups and workshops. She is also a co-organizer at GDG Vigo.
