Hello, there! My name is Petra, short for Petra Novandi Barus.
I currently work as Senior Developer Advocate at Amazon Web Services, covering for Indonesia region. I am in a mission to help builders to innovate on behalf of their customers.
Prior to that I was CTO and co-founder of UrbanIndo.com, an online real-estate platform startup, for 6.5 year since late 2011. The company was then acquired by 99.co Singapore at early 2018, where I then stayed as Country CTO for Indonesia operation until mid-2019.
I got my Master Degree in Informatics Engineering from ITB where I also got my Bachelor Degree in the same field. I like to hang out with my friends. That’s quite different from what people imagine about programmers, right? I also like movies. Besides study and those, I’m also involved in few research at campus.
Anyway, you could know me well from my Twitter account, my Facebook page, and my LinkedIn profile. If you are into programming like me, you may want to check my technical blog. And if you are interested with my work in IT education for high school students, you could contact me at TOKI Learning Center.
