My name is Ehi Kioya. I write code for a living. And I run this website.
I started programming with microcontrollers and embedded systems using assembly language. This was a lot of fun during my university days while studying Electrical/Electronic Engineering. But my focus gradually shifted to high-level programming languages and their associated technologies. After my undergraduate and postgraduate studies, I went on to work in many Software Engineering roles in different industries. Those different jobs over the years helped to broaden my skill set and contributed significantly to my current work philosophy.
While I don’t build electronic circuits as much as I used to anymore, I still tinker with them in my spare time.
Software Development Consulting Team
Our team has a relatively broad focus: We automate business processes, do DevOps work, perform migrations and deployments, develop web applications, manage servers, etc.
We’re interested in talking to you about helping with your software projects and custom development work. If you’d like to work with us, please use this contact form to send us a direct email.
Here’s what some other people have said about me and my developer team.
I’m a strong proponent and advocate of “technology agnosticism”. This means I try to be unbiased towards the use of different technology tools to solve different problems. I believe there is no “one size fits all” in the software development industry.
A well designed software solution factors in the strengths and weaknesses of the different available technology options as they relate to a client’s unique project. True, it may be near impossible to stay fully technology agnostic in some situations, but even so, having a technology agnostic mindset always helps.
My technology agnostic work philosophy makes me both language independent and stack independent. But beyond my tools of choice, technology agnosticism also influences my writing. It helps me preserve my autonomy and thought independence when I write. This prevents me from becoming a fanboy to any specific technology vendor and gives me freedom to write about tech without (or with minimal) bias.
About This Website
This site started out as my web playground and personal code solutions archive. As the site’s popularity grew, I gradually started using it for business as well.
My shop is a lot of fun to run. It features unique consumer products with a focus on geeky tech gadgets, unconventional items and oddities, survival gear, outdoor gizmos, pet gadgets, novelty gifts, and amazing product designs.
Even though I do many things on here, the primary focus of this website will always be writing about technology while I work in the “trenches” of software engineering.
Publishing my “technical notes” is one way I contribute to the global software development community and build credibility at the same time. It’s also a great way to stay curious.
