Hey there! My name is Jerry and I'm currently working as a software engineer in Singapore.
By day, I use Python and Go to build awesome stuff, with a little bit of NodeJS thrown in for good measure.
By night, I can be found writing here, tinkering with Burplist (a craft beer search engine), and keeping tabs on the latest Esports tournaments with Tournacat.
I love dabbling with random side projects. Like many, I get a thrill from bringing my silly ideas and unlikely follies to life.
Oh, I also get a kick out of web scraping – it's like a puzzle to me, trying to figure out how software is put together and pulling out the data I need.
My opinions are my own.
Usually, I write about software engineering or some random tiny projects that I worked on.
I love explaining stuff in plain language. Because let's face it, technical jargon can be confusing.
Here are my most-read writings in no particular order:
- I Built My Own TinyURL. Here's How I Did It
- Stop Using Exceptions Like This in Python
- Tuples vs. Lists vs. Sets in Python
- How To Write Clean Code in Python
