tldr; About me.

I've been a professional developer for about 7 years. I worked for about 6 years at 6 different companies and for about 1 year on a personal project.

I started out with 'low-level programming' (C, C++, drivers, etc.) and decided to transition to 'high-level programming'. I learned web development by creating my own project (DoNotSkip) and I then got hired based on that project.

The technologies I particularly enjoy working with these days are: Typescript, React and Node.
