A blog by Kien

Hello šŸ‘‹

My name is Kien (pronounced /'key in/). I am a Software Developer at Coveo and I have a Bachelor of Science in Honours Biochemistry from the University of Waterloo.

Iā€™m a self motivated learner who likes to program and one of my favourite things to do is try to automate tasks I encounter every day and improve the quality of life through science and technology.

My blog is a platform to share my experiences, interests, introspection and current progress with programming. In addition, I hope to become a better writer by blogging.

I am a data driven individual and always looking to improve my skills and be the best version of myself. Feel free to browse around!

My Career Change Journey

I documented my entire journey in changing my career path to becoming a developer on my blog and tracked my progress using the Pomodoro Technique.

After a very tough journey in facing many obstacles, I'm excited to work professionally as a software developer!

TL;DR - It took me 1 year and 430 hours of reskilling to change my career path - I list all the courses and details here. Feel free to scroll down for my timeline and journey.

My current progress šŸ“ˆ

Everything is a skill, and thus everything can be learned, improved on, and mastered, given enough time and effort. ā€” Serena Chen
