Chen Kinnrot 

CTO - STADS technologies
πŸ’» Personal Chat πŸ“ To-Dos πŸ† Projects & Challenges πŸ“ž 1-on-1 Calls πŸ›Ž Hands-On Support

I'm a tech founder, over the past 15 years, I wrote code as a CTO of web based applications, Most of the time used ruby on rails, so I got deep knowledge in building and scaling real products from ground up. I believe in clean code, that is easy to maintain, 100% test coverage, and most important, keeping things simple. I've been a mentor for the ITC (Israel tech challenge) and really liked it, even helped a men-tee to score a job at Google.

Hey there.

I discovered community building some 15 years ago and I have been hooked ever since. This is the core of what I've been doing since.

Along the way I've also been super interested in startups and business. I founded and boot strapped Ministry of Testing, a community focused on software testing. It's now a global community with online and offline (conferences + meetups) activities.

I stepped back from Ministry of Testing in 2019 to lead the community over at Indie Hackers.

My core skills lie within community building ...
