In a nutshell

So glad you stopped by!

I’m Marjaana Jokinen, self-employed L&D and information geek. I love to look over silos to create future-proof content and learning experiences, and I’m not afraid of any geeky stuff, either.

I have almost 20 years of work experience with information technology. I first started out as a technical writer in software business, worked part-time as a trainer for over a decade, and more recently have tried to carve out a career in online learning. An entreprenurial state of mind has been with me for over 15 years now.

This blog grew out of frustration in 2017. I was unemployed at the time and everywhere I looked, companies were only hiring software developers (”devaaja” in Finnish). Back-end, front-end, full-stack… you name it. Nobody saw the need for a role that operates between people, information and technology, the ”information developer”, so I had to create one myself. 🙂

The texts are mostly in Finnish because that was another way to do something new about topics and trends related to techcomm and learntech. However, I will probably be writing more in English later on.

Connect with me on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/in/marjaanaj) and have a chat. 

I’m also active on Twitter (@naanamar, @infodevaaja). My professional tweets concentrate on content management and learning technologies. Non-professional tweets usually contain puns and wordplay of some sort…
