Sep 8, 2017

What if I told you that by the end of this article, you’ll be able to calculate the orbital period of satellites around Earth using their average altitudes and… You tuned out already, didn’t you?

Hi there! I’m Vicky. 👋

My first languages were English, CSS, and LPC. I spent whole summers as a little girl programming a text-based MUD over Telnet. I made all kinds of things in that fantasy world, but soon that wasn’t enough.

I started making things for the real world.

I fell hard for front end development, a relationship that’s held steady for about a couple decades now. I’ve also learned to write JavaScript and Python, and I’m currently exploring Go.

I don’t seem to have an “off” button when it comes to building things. I also like drinking lots of coffee. The latter seems to produce even more of the former. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

To see what I’m currently up to, you can check out /now. You can also follow me on Twitter, where I’m @hivickylai.

Want me to build something for you? Let’s make it happen!

Have a really great day!
