The complete guide to ... me?
Hi there 👋
My name is Conner Ow (Pronounced "ow" as if you got hurt).
I'm a Fullstack Developer who lives out in the country, about an hours' drive from Dallas, Texas.
I code because it allows me to express my imagination and creativity. What other programmers develop inspires me to build and inspire others.
My coding Journey
My passion for programming started at the age of eleven after having been introduced to Khan Academy.
Discord allowed me to communicate with others in realtime, dramatically improving my productivity. I hung around people I shouldn't have, did some foolish stuff, and got my account nuked.
I started to dip into competitive programming by doing a few coding challenges and hackathons. In November of 2021, Replit announced their annual game jam. Participating in it helped me get close to the community. I cut the rope on Khan and stuck to Replit.
After participating in the game jam, I decided that I wanted to work at Replit. I applied for an internship and flunked the interview. I wasn't about to stop there.
In the next eight months, I did a three-month internship at Saasbox, raced solving algorithms on Codingame, learned and build multiple projects with Next.js, and took up the responsibility of moderating the Replit community.
I made some impactful improvements to Replit's moderation tools and did some contract work for their Trust and Safety team. I decided it was time to apply for Replit again.
After two more attempts, I got hired by Replit as a Support Engineer. For the next year, I:
In the next step of my life, I want to dive deeper into Content Creation and Entrepreneurship.
