About Me

Hello World! 👋

You're solving problems by writing code and I am here to help you level-up your skills!

My name is Maxim Orlov and I started my journey into software development 7 years ago.

Although I hold an academic degree 🎓 (in Economics), I did not study Computer Science and I'm entirely self-taught. With the help of freeCodeCamp, amongst others, I managed to land my first job as a backend engineer in less than 6 months time. I then left my home country, and the rest is history.

Now I work remotely 🧑‍💻 while traveling and exploring the world 🌎 while I'm still in my 20's30's.

I keep my professional life on Twitter, Github and LinkedIn. I publish educational videos 🎥 on YouTube, and sometimes I livestream programming on Twitch.

My personal life is on Instagram 📸 so if you're curious about the nomadic lifestyle, you can follow me there.

The goal for this website and all the content I create is to help you become a better developer, write clean code, and excel at your career. Every other Tuesday I send an email with tips on building solid Node.js applications. If you want to grow as a web developer and move your career forward with me, drop your email below. 👇
