Hey, I'm Kevin Oh. Currently on sabbatical to be with family, focus on a few side projects, and work on content. More TBD.

Previously, I was working as a Front-End Engineer with the awesome team at HomeLight: Home Loans working on our collective mission to make real estate transactions simple, certain, and satisfying. 🏠. Before that, I worked with the excellent team at Nulab πŸ’».

I’m currently building Archetype, a place to get curated product recommendations. I’m also working on Keys, a configurator tool for mechanical keyboards - to help enthusiasts browse products and create shareable builds while also serving to demystify things for beginners. I’m also tinkering with a Raspberry Pi to automate the boring stuff.

A while ago, I built a Chrome extension called NightMessenger that peaked at 30,000 DAU before some breaking changes led to the decision to sunset the project. Before that, I had co-founded Adelie, a web development shop that has since rolled back client-based operations to focus on building internal services & open source projects.

On the side, I also help out as a mod over at /r/webdev and /r/webdesign.


Whatcha workin on?

What technologies are you studying?

I’ve been diving into the deeper end of TypeScript. Post on that Soon. ℒ️ Or maybe not. Who knows.

I’m also currently studying:

  • Go, for use in Appledore, a personal relationships manager I’m working on building,
  • Laravel, for use in Keys, a configurator tool for mechanical keyboards (among other things)
  • Strapi, for incredibly rapid back-end scaffolding for content-centric sites
  • Blender, for 3D animations and visuals, with particular interest about potential exports to WebGL/similar
  • Godot, for game development. I recently made an iOS recreation of an old mini-game from the video game Jak 2, and it was far more intuitive than I thought it’d be.

Someday, I’d like to learn more about: TensorFlow & ML, D3, K8, and blob fishes.

Preferred Tools & Tech

I use VSCode Insider Edition, Chrome, and iTerm2. I prefer working on an 2021 M1 Max MacBook Pro. The Keychron C1 is a fantastic device for the price.

Shout-out to my parents, Kelly μΆ˜μ‹€ Kim and 였λͺ…남. You taught me patience, tact, persistence, wisdom, and selflessness. Shout-out to the awesome, ambitious people at the Adelie Developer’s Group, the subreddit moderation teams, HLHL and Nulab. I’m better for having met every one of y’all. ❀️
