I’m a self-taught programmer, Computer Science student at the National University of Singapore, and an aspiring software engineer with substantial experience in full-stack web development with React and Node. I love making software that push boundaries and solve problems.
Online courses kickstarted my programming life. When I was 13 years old, I taught myself iOS application development by watching Stanford University lectures, cofounded a company and sold an iOS Twitter client on the App Store. I’m now 24, and I have created various things in the intervening years.
Most recently, I was part of the MLH Fellowship, during which I collaborated with the React core team to build an experimental React concurrent mode profiler, with the mentorship of the amazing Jani Eväkallio.
During the fellowship, I also drove the development of Stack Attack, a tool that finally brings the stacked pull request workflow (used at Facebook, Jane Street, and many other companies) to GitHub. This tool was heavily inspired by the mindblowing tools I used while interning at Facebook last summer, and it has literally changed the way I use GitHub. I can’t wait to launch it with my incredible team!
Personally, summer 2020 has far exceeded my expectations, especially after my year hit a low when my summer internship with Facebook Menlo Park was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year is far from over, and I can’t wait to bring 2020 to new heights!
