More About Me?
I am a Developer Experience Engineer and technical writer. I enjoy working on projects that help other software engineers. I'm usually the guy that make it possible for other developers to get things done faster. At Flutterwave, I oversee the development of technical tools like SDKs and Plugins that make it easy for Engineers to Integrate Flutterwave into their projects. You can find some of the Flutterwave packages I oversaw their development here.
To further help developers get things done, I create a lot of technical content. You can find some of my contents on Scotch and Logrocket. You can also take a look at the Flutterwave v3 documentation that I completed a few months ago. Finally, I speak at conferences when the need be.
Outside work, I'm a fun loving person. I like to dance (even though I suck at it 😞). I also like to travel, meet new people, learn new cultures and try out new meals 😃.
I love simplicity so I try to keep things simple in all that I do. I'm also very particular about best practices and would always sacrifice time and effort to acheive great developer and user experiences in all my works.
