UI Prototype

How did you get to where you are today in the developer world?

When I was young, I loved to stay home with my PC and play games, enhance the hardware, etc rather than doing anything else. Hobbies were the most important step for me in jumping into the coding world along with faith, self-learning, and practice.

What is your best strategy for tackling a project or challenge?

Google and YouTube, time managing to schedule the challenge. If the challenge needs 5 days, I will spend '6 days'(less sleep more coding time) on it.

How do you keep up with current trends and advances in this field?

Watch related hot technologies YouTube videos, official docs and demo, learn and write code.
There is no shortcut I believe, more learning, more coding, more confident.

What are you most looking forward to for the TCO Finals?

I really wanna watch Dallas Mavericks NBA match if possible.

Tell us what achievement you are the most proud of.

Attend to TCO again!

If you wrote your own developer profile, what would it say?

Hello TCO world!

Offline, what is your favorite thing to do?

Staying with my family๐Ÿ‘ช, play basketball ๐Ÿ€ with friends, and sleeping๐Ÿ’ค to store energy for coding
