Hello! My name is Vanessa (Nkoyo) Ating. I am a Software Engineer based in Lagos, Nigeria and I work mostly with Frontend technologies eg: React, Vue etc.

I started programming in 2015 but I've been going on and off since 2012 but I was never very serious with it until 2015 when I decided to fully pursue a career in Software Development.

To Learn more about my journey into Tech, I have a Podcast where I talked about my journey, from wanting to become a Medical Doctor to finally studying Computer Science and eventually becoming a Software Engineer.

Here's a link to the Episode specifically highlighting my journey, do well to listen and share:

Also, I love writing. I enjoy sharing things I've learnt with other people or just writing about topics I'm interested in generally, which is why after so much procastination and failing to be consistent with putting out technical content on Medium I've decided to invest in builing my own blog in a bid to be more consistent with putting out Tech Content and maybe things that interest me as I go through this Software Engineering journey.

In as much as the goal is to share the things I've learnt either by writing or podcasting, I also want to be able to use both platforms to encourage other developers or people looking to go into Tech and more importantly learn new things and solidify my knowledge by teaching/sharing.

I hope to be very consistent and I hope that when you read an article or either listen to an episode on my Podcast you would learn a thing or two.

And lastly, do feel free to reach out to me on Twitter with your questions, comments or feedback. I'll be happy to engage.

As always, Thank you for reading!
