Hey there, my internet friends :)
I'm Shafie, an aspiring craftsman, a fullstack developer with a passion for building useful products with great UX and high performance! 💻🔥
I enjoy working across the technology stacks throughout the software development lifecycle from concept, design, development, production to maintenance. I mainly use React with TypeScript for frontend development while for backend development I recently use Java, Python and a bit of Golang.
In the spirit of 'learning in public', I'm trying to write more technical contents here basically on all technical and engineering knowledge that I have learned from time to time on Web Dev, Distributed System and Generative AI. Probably in not-so-far future, I will also write on mechanical engineering, robotics and other technical discpline that fascinated me.
- Software/Web development
- ML/Analytics tools
Outside of work, my recent active interests are reading books and fitness. I love climbing though I'm currently on hiatus. I recently picked up photography and enjoying it. I'm also trying to write more, this blog is part of the effort. I enjoy playing chess though I don't play it as often anymore. I love watching movies esspecially space sci-fi genre.
