Hi, I'm Devon Yu.

I'm a Software Developer based in San Francisco, California.
Born and raised in the Bay Area, UCSD graduate, tinkerer and Self-Taught Programmer.

Strong interest in full-stack development focusing on well designed, clean, responsive, and scalable code. I strive on creating/implementing/testing features that improves overall user experience, learning new technologies, and optimizing services to scale. I have experience developing in an Agile environment and enjoy solving challenges that arise during the software development cycle.

When I'm not coding, I enjoy the following: Photography, Cycling, Running, Lifting, Basketball, Gaming + Board Games, Traveling, Tinkering / Modding / DIY (software/hardware/cars/you name it) and cooking. I've grown to enjoy writing about my experiences in software development and life in general on my blog.
