Hello everybody! My name is Alfred Ko and I am a Vancouver-based front-end web developer. I have graduated from the Technical Web Designer Program (TWD) at the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Before entering this program, I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Speech Sciences at the University of British Columbia, but I felt that I wanted a career change. After pulling up Codecademy one day and trying out their HTML and CSS course out of curiosity, I really got into coding, and when I discovered that there was such a field that uses coding called “web development”, that was when I felt really sold on it. I love not only the problem solving aspect of the field, but with coding you can also enrich the visual outlook and browsing experience of websites as well.
I have been working in teams for various projects during the TWD Program, so the program has allowed me to become a better communicator, and a more co-operative person. I also aim to use all that I learned to make sure that clients get the most beautiful, dynamic and innovative websites as possible.
When I am not at work, you can find me swimming, jogging, running, or casually picking up a new language.
Thank you, and I hope to hear from you soon!
