Hey! I'm Alicia, a software engineer based in London, UK.

I love all-things-code, and my favourite pastime is developing open source applications. I'm always looking for new technologies to learn, and to find better ways of developing.

This blog is a collection of articles about new tech, specific tutorials, event and product reviews as well as a few posts on random topics and things I've been up to.

When I'm not coding, I enjoy sports, socialising, chilling and thinking about code! I am a Christian, and a lot of the work I do is done with Jesus in mind. I am always happy to work for free or cost price on charitable or Christian projects.

This blog is not regularly updated.
Since not much in my life is particularly interesting (lol), the blog is mainly used for articles about coding and tech, as well as a few tutorials and reviews.
