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 💻.
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.
Whatcha workin on?
What technologies are you studying?
I’ve been diving into the deeper end of TypeScript. Post on that Soon. ™️ Or maybe not. Who knows.
I’m also currently studying:
Someday, I’d like to learn more about: TensorFlow & ML, D3, K8, and blob fishes.
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 춘실 Kim and 오명남. 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. ❤️
