aka Shawn Wang
Hey, I'm swyx! I help build great developer experiences, from documentation to dev tools to dev communities.
P.S. "swyx" is the initials of my English and Chinese names and you can use it interchangeably with "Shawn". It is pronounced "swicks".
I am a developer/PM/angel investor, primarily active in the web dev community as a blogger and frequent speaker. I am a GitHub Star 🌟, Stripe Community Expert, and helped cofound Svelte Society and run the React subreddit for over 200,000 developers.
I grew up in Singapore 🇸🇬, but have worked mostly in the US 🇺🇸/UK 🇬🇧, most recently remotely out of New York City 🗽 working on Developer Experience for Netlify, Amazon Web Services, and now Temporal. I am currently physically in Singapore due to COVID.
In a past life I was a currency options trader turned TMT hedge fund analyst as well, and I often do approach tech from an investing and risk management angle.
I am currently working on Developer Experience at Temporal.io, working US hours out of Singapore. I am also a regular on the Svelte Radio podcast and my own Swyx Mixtape. You can get more high frequency updates on my Twitter.
