❖ About me
Hello! I'm Ovie, a frontend developer by day and part-time insomniac by night.
I build stuff that can be accessed via the web, from websites, dynamic components, or technical articles. I care deeply about performance and best practices and sometimes I can spend more time on a feature to get it juust right. I can get productive with new technologies in very little time and I have a large appetite for learning new things.
Here are a few technologies I've been working with recently:
- HTML & CSS
❖ How I keep the lights on
