Junior Web3 / Blockchain Engineer

I am a want-to-be software/web developer who dived into the coding world through a bootcamp. I learned from the most fundamental concepts such as HTML and CSS to Solidity and Typescript. Bootcamp was a nine-month long course which included several personal projects and four team projects with one being a collaboration with a company called bounce;code.


The very first coding language that I experienced was Python in college. I was very confident that I could study the language by myself until I came across the “for loop”. I could not break down the concept and the logic behind “for loop” and gave up. As an astronomy-physics major, I had to take an introductory computer science course, which opened up the possibility of understanding Python and general computer science.


After graduating college, however, I was lost in nowhere and could not see myself taking more steps into the vast and pitch-black world of astronomy. So I took advantage of my bilingual ability and became a freelance translator/interpreter working at Esports competitions. Being part of the gaming industry, I wanted to be more directly involved in the community: creating video games. Bootcamp was one of the options, and as I looked through available courses, the Blockchain course caught my attention. After a couple of interviews, I was very fortunate to be accepted to take the course.


During the project with bounce;code, I increased the depth of knowledge of Typescript and Solidity. My team developed an STO web page with React and Tailwind CSS. I was not very familiar with the tech stacks at the beginning and learned a lot as I worked on the project. Outside of the stacks, I learned the significance of communication which was required to prevent errors and issues caused when merging each others’ work. I also started to pay much more attention to the smallest details such as a single alphabet or a period(.) which can be a significant factor that causes errors.


I spent my school days in both Korea and the US. Thanks to such experience, I learned how to adjust to different cultures and atmospheres. It was not comfortable to be exposed to an unfamiliar environment, so I had to develop the ability to be accustomed to the surroundings. Through such a process, I learned to accept different perspectives from people with different backgrounds.


I appreciate your time and consideration. Thank you.
