Hi, my name is

Ovie Okeh.

Your friendly neighbourhood developer

I'm a frontend developer based in Utrecht, NL specializing in building (and occasionally breaking) highly dynamic websites, applications, and everything in between.

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.

Just don't ask me to solve Gödel's Incompleteness Theorem on a whiteboard with JavaScript 😃. I'm currently not looking for new opportunities but if you think you have an offer I can't refuse, get in touch!

Here are a few technologies I've been working with recently:

  • HTML & CSS
  • JavaScript
  • TypeScript
  • React
  • Vue
  • Node.js
  • Redux

How I keep the lights on
