This month our spotlight goes to @DianaTran-Yee!
If you've asked a questions on our forum, you likely got a response from Diana. She has been actively helping moderator the community forums for over two years and is passionate about getting you the support you need as you work with Visa APIs. We thought it was time you all got to know her a bit more. Read her Q&A and show her some love with a kudo or comment below.
Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself, where are you from and what is your current role at Visa?
[Diana]: I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada and I moved to California later in life. My current role is on the Visa Developer Platform where I provide developer support and I’m the Visa Developer Center community forum moderator. In both of these communication channels, I work directly with clients to answer their questions and resolve their technical issues.
Q: What do you enjoy most from interacting with other devs on the forums?
[Diana]: I enjoy meeting people from all over the world with different backgrounds but with a common purpose, to collaborate and solve Visa Developer related issues. This is a great opportunity to gain insight from the perspective of the customer.
Q: If you were an API, what would you be? Why? 😀
[Diana:]I’d be a Visa Direct API because I’m a worldly person that embraces and enjoys learning about different cultures and helping others, and, since Visa Direct is available for use globally I believe this API would be a good fit for me.
Q: What do you love most about coding?
[Diane]: The creative aspect is what I love the most about coding. Coding really is a language that allows one to express themselves and communicate in a logical way.
Q: What was the first thing you built with code?
[Diana]: I created websites for friends and family.
Q: What’s the best piece of advice you have for developers new to Visa Developer?
[Diana]: Don't be afraid to reach out and ask questions. We have a very friendly and capable staff willing to help and engage in dialog with our customers.
Q: Any tips for developers exploring payments?
[Diana]: Check out this link for our Payments APIs and choose the API that best fits your project’s need - https://developer.visa.com/site/payment-methods
Q: Anything else you want to share about yourself?
[Diana]: I really love working at Visa and think it's a great opportunity for myself and anyone else interested in working at a fast paced and friendly environment.
