ABOUT ME

I am a Front-end developer based in Lagos, Nigeria. I am well versed in client-side technologies, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I have built many UI designs and I always pay close attention to the details of a design. I know CSS so well that no interface will be too hard for me to build.

I am a strong advocate of responsive and accessible websites and I endeavor to build web pages that are both responsive and accessible. I use SASS to keep my CSS maintainable and modular. I have also built web pages and applications with React and Redux. I understand how REST APIs work and I have built several applications with it.

When I am not coding, I write technical articles on dev.to. These articles cover a wide range of Front-end topics including React, ES6, CSS, and SASS. Recently, my article was one of the top seven articles of the week on dev.to. I also love designing user interfaces with Figma and applying principles of UX.
