Karanja in a few words

Hey, I am Alex a Full-Stack(Web & Mobile) software developer with over 4 year of experience in software development. I love good UI/UX designs and specialize in bringing design mockups into life. My favorite stage of a project is working with clients and businesses to analyze the projects deeply. As we go through the project analysis process, the ideas start to flow and that's always the fun part for me.

I have been a Technical Team Lead, Learning Facilitator and mentored junior developers in my favorite programming languages, JavaScript and Python throughout my career.

So if you have a project or need to build something of this kind, please don't hesitate to contact me. I will be more than willing to help you.
