Hello reader! I'm Shu Chen. A traveling developer with over 10 years of experience specializing in backend development. One of my biggest passion in life is to see as much as possible of the world. During my travel I experience all of kinds of culture. With the experiences I gain, it brings me new ideas and gives me different perspective. Being a developer means a lot of freedom.

The first time I ever experience the internet, it was back when everyone had a dial-up connection. I was totally fascinated by it. During that time I knew I wanted to become a developer. So I started to develop my first website in PHP and down the road I have accuquired a tons of developing skills. My favourite programming languages at the moment are probably Java and Python. I have done a lot in webdevelopment aswell. For example creating complex RESTFUL API system for apps and (IoT) system. Creating tons of websites in Laravel 5.*. Check out my resume for the detail view of my programming skills.
