Achievements

  • This Space

    I have always wanted to create a space where I could share my little knowledge and expertise, and a place where other people would come to find resources for themselves.

    I tried WordPress which worked fine during the first few months, but could not give me the level of comfort I needed, so, I thought, it was time to move to Gatsby, and here we are. Blazing fast, SEO Optimized, super easy customization what more do I need?

  • Learning Erlang

    I do hear about the beauty of this language for concurrent distributed systems. I don't have in mind to create one, but I mind creating efficient chat systems, so I thought, why not try it.

    I went in barely Nov. 2019, and by two months in, I could read and write Erlang languages efficiently.

    To solidify my understanding of the language, I built an ICE server for WebRTC audio and video calling. Check Erlang ICE Server

    It was fun!!!

  • Joining Open Source

    Nope, I have not contributed to all the repositories and projecs you have in mind, but, check My Work's page to see the amount of libraries that I have available for free to the world

    These libraries give people satisfaction every day, and that is where my joy comes from. I am mentioning this, in case you care to ask, :smiles:

  • Interning At Africoders Network

    I love technology, and I would do whatever that it might require to make me explore it.

    One of my unforgettable days is the day that I first stepped in Africoders Network and shooking Anthony Ogundipe, I felt like my dreams came through, and it did.

    This begins my journey to being a software developer. Like Genesis is to Bible, Africoders Network is to my Developer's Journey

Interests

I enjoy learning and trying out new things. I enjoy adventuring new areas and ideas.

These seem natural to me, due to the fact that I spend most my time asking questions and few times seeking for the answers that I am yet to find.

I enjoy science, I LOVE technology. I respect God, he takes a top priority, I give as much as I can and live everyday as I would live my last day on earth.
