Greetings, and welcome to my technical blog! My full name is Ayooluwa Isaiah, but everyone just calls me Ayo (Ah-yuh).
While I continued to expand my knowledge by learning React, Vue.js, and other frontend technologies, I found myself growing disillusioned with the constant flux in that space. Seeking a more stable path, I shifted my focus to backend development, starting with Node.js and later delving into the world of Go. I now primarily develop web services and CLIs in Go, and I actively use PostgreSQL, Docker, and various observability tools.
Before embarking on my coding journey, I ran my own football website, where I wrote opinion pieces on the Premier League and managed a team of contributing writers. Although the website is now defunct, this experience coupled with several freelance technical writing gigs laid the groundwork for my current role at Better Stack. I am privileged to lead the technical content team, producing insightful articles on building and scaling reliable applications.
From my passion for writing, programming, and sharing experiences, Freshman was born in October 2016, and it now serves as the home of all my various thoughts and adventures in software development.
