Welcome to My Digital Ether
My name is Angela, but you can call me Angie. I am a Frontend and Fullstack Software Engineer based in Los Angeles, California. I work predominantly with React, Typescript, GraphQL, Webpack and Progressive Web Apps as well as Node Express, MongoDB, PostgresQL, Travis CI and Docker.
Besides Technology, I am fascinated by philosophy, architecture, design, and I try to live by the idea of applying concepts and patterns from different walks of life and embed those ideas into technology. Growing up, I would often contemplate our existence, the very idea of a void.
I've later reached the conclusion that when you try to understand life, you figure that coding is a much simpler thing to understand . . . I then realized that my aim in life is to push past the edges of reality.
Born and raised in a small bubble of a suburb right outside of Manhattan called Westchester, I quickly moved to Los Angeles after College because deep down I knew that I am a Californian at heart. I wasn't wrong!
I believe that Programming is like an Art form, and Art is what life is all about.
I would also say that I am a futurist, and I like to constantly evolve and reinvent. I believe that we can never be good enough, and we can always do better. I've been quite intrigued by blockchain technology, designing decentralized systems and applications with React, Typescript, GraphQL: merging major Web2 patterns into Solidity Smart Contracts, AssemblyScript and Rust Programming Language. I am excited to see what the future of the decentralized Internet holds and am eager to take that step in joining the movement.
Here are some of the technologies I like using:
- GraphQL, Webpack, Material-UI, Apollo, REST API, Gatsby PWA
- Node, Express, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, Jest, Enzyme, Python
- BCrypt, JWT, OAuth, Git, Babel, Web Sockets, TravisCI, Firebase, Electron
- Solidity, Ethereum, Blockchain, Rust, decentralized React Applications
