Bangbay Siboliban

I've been a professional web developer for over 11 years. Though mainly focused on front-end development, I have full-stack experience with several languages and frameworks. A "hand raiser" and fast learner, I seek challenges and new ways to contribute. I've worked on large-scale projects from start to finish, as well as jumped in at the last minute to help finish products before launch. In my free time, I also code personal projects and participate in mentoring programs for people interested in learning to code.
