Kolawole O

For the past decade, I have gained experience in various technologies in different sectors including Financial Technology, HealthCare, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, and the Internet of Things. I am an expert in various technology stacks such as MEAN, MERN, and .NET. I find it easy to adapt to new technologies, frameworks, and libraries: and develop for production applications. I strongly believe that the science and technology field is a great incubation hub for innovation.
