About Me

My name is Lydia Hallie and I'm a 24-year-old software engineer. I'm originally from the Netherlands but have been living a pretty nomadic lifestyle since 2016 🌎

I specialize in TypeScript, GraphQL, Web Performance, and Cloud technologies, and I love making complex computer science concepts accessible to anyone interested in technology through my writing and visualizations.

I've been a full-time software engineer since 2017, and I've had the opportunity to work with some incredible startups ranging from pre-seed to Series D, which has been an amazing learning experience for me, both in terms of technology and business. In 2022, I have been focusing more on developer relations to improve my people skills and get out of my coding comfort zone.

In my free time, I like to challenge myself to be more creative and improve my tech skills by writing in-depth articles on commonly used technologies and subjects that are often misunderstood or take time to understand. I also enjoy giving talks at conferences and meetups.
