Me

Hi, I’m Andrew. I am a software engineer based in Hong Kong. My experience as a developer comes with making websites as a hobby in my childhood. Still, through the last four years of my career, I am passionate about developing web applications with high-quality code. I enjoy creating beautiful, simple and elegant web applications.

Graduated from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, I started my career in 2016 as a frontend developer in a digital marketing agency. I work with designers for multimedia campaigns.

One year later, I joined a local unicorn startup Lalamove and start focusing on full-stack software development. I rebuilt the customer-side web application with my teammates to payback tech debts and enhanced the technical foundation of the systems. At Lalamove I also open-sourced different projects, including @lalamove/karang – an internal React UI components library being used across all main frontend projects.

I am now working in the financial services industry. I joined the New Ventures team in PwC to build innovative products, and create new value for the clients.

Over the years, I realized that my strength is working on frontend projects with designers by making sure every element in good shape with elegant code. Maintainable code means a lot to me - it should be well tested with clear structure. Also, I used to develop software under Agile and Waterfall methodologies with Git workflow.

In my free time, I write apps, write blogs and take photography.
