Hoh Shen Yien

Software Engineer

👋 Hello

Hi, some people call me Shen for simplicity.

I am a Malaysian Fullstack Developer, currently working in InsurTech industry. I enjoy solving real world problems with innovation and technology!

I usually learn new things by reading, and the idea of myself writing eventually came up, leading to the birth of my blog. I have been writing for quite a while now, though on and off sometimes.

You can find my different blogs here, from tutorials of frontend to lessons learnt in backend, discussion of frameworks like Next.js to Spring, and even some of my life stories!
