About me, a software engineer from Berlin

I am a Kevin Peters, a software developer and JavaScript enthusiast from Berlin, Germany. I currently work as a Software Engineer for the finance company Klarna, a unicorn in Europe. I deeply care about developer experience and everything around these topics.

This website was created a long time ago already with Nuxt.js and similar tools but I found out it is quite limited so decided to rearchitecture this website with Gatsby.js. Now it includes more content and a better visual design. I like to share my thoughts and learnings in form of blogs which I will present here mostly.

My goal is always to create high quality content and teach people different technical things. I am grateful for the open source scene and the several blogs existing because they got me into programming and taught me a lot. That is why I want to give something back.
