Hi, I'm Prosper Opara.
I build web applications
that are scalable

TLDR: Fullstack Engineer and Technical Writer.

I have been coding for over 2 years with experience building fullstack web applications as a freelancer for clients, contributing to open source and working on personal projects. I'm a stack agnostic developer, as I pretty much learn what I need to deliver projects. Nevertheless, I have more experience building fullstack Javascript applications (React for FE and Node for BE), PHP/Laravel powered applications, API's (RESTful and GraphQL), persisting data with SQL and NoSQL databases. Recently, I started digging into Docker, K8s and cloud computing.

When I am not coding I love to spend my time writing technical articles on web technologies and volunteering for developer communities. I'm a GitHub Campus Expert (#GithubEducation), Co-lead for the Facebook Developer Circles Owerri (#DevCOwerri) and a Learning Community Ambassador for the Andela Learning Community (#ALCImo)

P.S: I love being called kodekage(an aliase I adopted after seeing the great ninja war in the Naruto anime series which is my favorite). I gave it meaning and from my perspective it means "I'm responsible for my code". I'm the lord of my codeland and oversee it's readability, maintainability, cleanliness etc. I'm not a perfect kage but I learn from the complaints of my people (error logs and stack traces) and keep the god's happy (runtime engine).
