Hello, I'm Athanasios Kyriakakis, my friends and colleagues call me Thanos (no worries I don’t own any gloves). I was born in the Netherlands, both my parents are greek hence the unpronounceable name. I currently live and work in Amsterdam as a frontend developer.
I always had a love for computers but it wasn’t until I turned 25 that I developed a passion for programming as well. I quit my then job in order to become a full-time developer, I can safely say now that it was one of the best decisions I ever made. First thing I did was sign up for an 8-week coding boot camp. It was really intense but it filled in all the blanks I had from practising on my own. After finishing the boot camp I started looking for a full-time job and I luckily landed in afrogleap's pond where I have been working ever since.
As I mentioned above I work in frontend development and my primary focus is building single page applications, for that I use:
- Redux / Apollo (depends on the API)
- Agile Methodologies, more specifically scrum
What I'm working on now
For my full-time job I work at afrogleap where I develop and maintain web-based projects. This website! I keep it up to date as much as I can.
