/about me/

Yo, I'm Michael Okoko, a Nigerian software engineer and CS undergraduate.

I'm super interested in low-level systems work (networking, storage, and databases), and the challenges that they come with.

Recently, I've also been exploring distributed systems and digging into the innards of TiKV - a distributed transactional key-value database.

I have experience in Go, PHP, C++ and SQL. I occasionally dabble in Android development using Java, but it's inconsistent enough for me to wonder if learning Kotlin is worth it.

Also, I play around with generative art (using Processing), I publish technical articles on the Twilio Blog, Dev.to and my personal journal.

When I'm not coding, I'm nerding out about sci-fi books like Pierce Brown's Red Rising, tinkering with Origami, or trying to learn the basics of electronics and circuitry. I don't talk about all that anyway, since I suck balls at them.
