My main area of expertise is agile software development. The bulk of my work at Salesforce involves Scala+Play, Python+Django, CoffeeScript+Angular.JS and Amazon Web Services (AWS). I am also proficient in Ruby on Rails and Java+Spring Boot.

As a software engineer, I care a lot about writing not only functional but also efficient, maintainable and secure code. When working in a team, I practise and advocate Test-driven Development (TDD), Continuous Integration (CI), and refactoring.

During my stint at the Singapore government, I also undertook DevOps tasks such as developing Bash and Ansible scripts and setting up automation pipelines to enable Continuous Delivery (CD) for large-scale e-services.

When I am not programming, I like to dance, travel and take photographs with my Olympus OM-D E-M10 and GoPro Hero 5 Black.
