I am a junior Software Engineer working in a start up company. Prior to my current role, I was a mechanical engineer for two years. My interest in Software development started when I was able to overcome challenges that I faced in my engineering industry.
I keep up with the latest trends through attending community events and engaging with experienced tech experts. I am fortunate that my current organisation is able to create that culture where I can reach out to other tech experts and share insights. I also keep up with the latest trends within the programming world through X (formally known as Twitter).
