WHO I AM
Hello! My name is Shen Yien and I'm a Malaysian fullstack developer with a knack in logical problem solving. My journey began with solving problems from The Euler Project using Python back in 2018. It's still impressive to me how I could make my computer solve problems that seem impossible easily.
Fast forward to today, I've had the privilege to work with a software house, a technology agency, and a SaaS start-up. Currently, I focus on developing exceptional Web Applications that solve users' pain points and make world a better place to live in!
I also maintain a blog about my journey as a fullstack developer including some lessons and knowledge that I learned along the journey.

WHAT I BUILT
This is an e-commerce website built from scratch for a delivery service startup.
It is a very comprehensive application, consisting of modules related to delivery, food information, admin panel, payment and nutritions.
Due to the startup nature, I had to participate in basically every part of it, from backend, frontend to deployment. There were times when I as a part-timer had to take lead for the project itself. Thus, this was quite a great experience for me.
Nevertheless, as the startup ran out of budget, the operation is closed down.
By the way, tRPC as backend is a really interesting idea.
This is our project from Odyssey Hackfest. It is a one-stop community management mobile application with a focus on residents' personal safety.
It consists of Prototype Design, Business Proposal, and a Working Prototype. In the end, we managed to come out as champion of the hackathon🏆.
Vendor Registration Form
A digital solution in replacing traditional pen & paper forms for large companies in collecting & registering their vendors information.
This module features a fully customizable form like Google Form, but more! It prefills data collected into new entities while remaining fully fluid and dynamic.
