Origin Story

Who Am I?

Hi I'm Wei Minn, currently a sophomore student at the Singapore Management University School of Information Systems. Before SMU, I graduated with a diploma in Mobile and Network services from Temasek Polytechnic where I emphasized on developing Internet-of-Things applications.

Initially, I was trained as a network engineer before I started my Polytechnic education where I develop end-to-end IoT solution. When I was developing IoT solutions, I fell in love with the web development aspect of it and I self taught myself MEAN stack which is NodeJS backend environment and Angular framework for the Single-Paged Application frontend. So I transitioned myself to being a Full Stack Web Developer in the middle of my Polytechnic education and I ended up interning as a Web Developer where my team built a web portal to digitize a firewall rules review process in the company. which used to be paper based and extremely tedious and inefficient.

In SMU, I began zooming into my capabilities in terms of algorithmic thinking and mathematical maturity to become a much more efficient and disciplined coder.
