Vittoria Bitton

Software Engineer

Who are you, and what do you do? What do you like to do outside of work?

Hi there! I’m Vittoria, a software engineer based in Brazil (well, not that based lately since I’ve being trying to spend some periods traveling and experiencing life in different countries) working for a fully remote company called Valued.

I’ve been working in the last three years mainly with Elixir, and I’m loving it. So I would say my main focus of interest lately has been the development of distributed systems with functional languages, preferably Elixir.

Music and books give Vittoria a break from computers

Outside of work—generally speaking—people can find me doing a lot of sports (Olympic weight lifting and calisthenics mostly), reading as a way to reduce my screen time, hanging with my friends, helping my family, and trying to learn something. Right now it is music, an old passion that I never actually put the effort into to master the theoretical base of. I’m using Brazilian «choro popular» and introductory jazz pieces in my learning.

What hardware do you use?

I work on a MacBook, and I have a set of peripherals to help me have an ergonomic setup, which has been very important for me lately. From chair to a standing desk, to the Logitech MX Vertical and sometimes an Apple trackpad as well. Also a wider monitor helps me a lot (mine is a simple wide-screen one from LG) and a RØDE mic for a more improved sound quality. Also the Moonlander as main keyboard, but also I have a regular mechanical keyboard that I use for unrelated-to-work stuff.

And what software?

VS Code and other work-related software (Slack, Notion, iTerm2, 1Password, etc.). I’ve been using Sukha for time management and focus tasks. But besides that, I’m pretty much a notebook person.

What’s your keyboard setup like? Do you use a custom layout or custom keycaps?

My setup with the Moonlander is the default keycaps and the macOS mastery layout. I’m feeling already comfortable with it, so eventually I might add some custom changes I could do to improve it.

What would be your dream setup?

I love minimalist setups with nonexistent cable cords. So that would be a great start + having a better monitor—I’m curious about those curved wide-screens. And most important: better lighting to avoid eye fatigue. The last one seems very doable, but I never took time to figure it out.
