Hi, I am Jacky! ๐Ÿ‘‹

I am a software engineer working with JavaScript and on all-things-web. In general, I love balancing between infrastructure and product side of the frontend work. I am currently based in Jakarta, Indonesia (๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ).

I am @jackyef__ on Twitter. From time to time, I tweet about things I learned in my personal journey, be it tech, career, or even just general things about life. If you are on the platform, letโ€™s connect!

    In mid-late 2020, I left what most people would consider a very cushy and stable job: a software engineer position at a big tech unicorn. It definitely was not an easy decision to make, but considering that I tend to overthink and worry about stuff, it was a decision that I was surprisingly very confident in.

    This writing serves as a personal reflection and retrospective of my journey from the past couple of years, which hopefully might be of interest to some people.
