Hello! I'm Pakata. I was born in 1990 and raised in Singapore. If you're wondering why my name sounds strange, it's because it's a Buddhist name. I'm Singaporean Chinese. I attended the National University of Singapore (NUS) and graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering in 2015. During university, I was part of the NUS Formula Student team competing in the Formula Student (FSAE) Michigan competiton.
In July 2018, I decided to leave my job as a technical sales engineer in the industrial sector to pursue software development as a career. As I was learning, I completed the #100DaysOfCode challenge and managed to secure an internship as a junior developer. In Feb 2019, I joined a bootcamp conducted by ThoughtWorks (Singapore).
I've learnt a lot, both during my time of self-learning and during the bootcamp. I decided to create this website to further document my journey as a developer and to also share the knowledge I have gained thus far.
In my free time, I dabble in a little photography. I love cars and I keep up with Formula 1 during race weekends.
