About Kelvin

Kelvin is a self taught full stack developer.

Although I am a college dropout, I had a passion about programming and slowly came back to the pratice of being self taught. Eventually landing myself in a full stack coding bootcamp Digital Crafts. And that's where my career as a software developer has truely taken off. My biggest takeaway was a new passion of learning and teaching programming. Which is the main reason I started creating tutorials and courses.

I'm a big advocate of functional programming. Which has lead me to want to be more than just a JavaScript developer and aim to become a polyglot in the functional family of languages.

I may be a workaholic, but that's only because programming has become a bit of a hobby of mine. But don't worry I am still a normal human, some of my other hobbies include films, video and tabletop games, just your typical nerd. Another one of my passions is self development and becoming the best version of myself.
