Web Development

I started software development while still in college, after i saw a friend developing an application. My interest in software development grew as i saw him do some backend coding. I studied Computer Science at the prestigious Lagos State University in Lagos. In 2015, i started writing some backend code in Core PHP. I developed quite some few projects back then in college which kick-started my journey in programming. My first projects were built with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL. Interestingly, my toolset remains much the same today. After some years, i felt there is a need for me to start using a backend framework. I chose Laravel Framework, which was created by Taylor Otwell. I love laravel because it was carefully built by Taylor. I moved on to learning a front-end framework, i needed something i can actually custom to my taste, so i chose Tailwind CSS, which was created by Adam Wathan. I chose Tailwind CSS because of its flexibility. These days i focus more on building web interfaces using Laravel, Vue.js and Tailwind CSS.
