Here's Tony!

Tony Hwang on

Welcome, Tony, our Frontend Developer in Shanghai.

Tony, aka shuaibird, recently joined Wiredcraft as our Frontend Developer. He will work with our Frontend Team to tackle React based projects


Hola, this is Tony. I’m a JavaScript developer with more than 2 years of working experience. I’ve worked with a few startups in the tech industry.

What attracted you to apply here?

The JS conf attracted me to join. Besides that, I love the flexible working time, the remote-friendly working style, and the multicultural startup atmosphere here.

What’s the most adventurous experience you have had?

I love adventures, e.g., traveling alone when I was young, and playing live gigs. However, I think the most adventurous one is changing my career from non-tech fields to become a developer. I always remember how “scary” it was the first time when I opened the terminal application of my laptop. LOL.

If there’s one thing you recommend everyone in the world to do, what would it be?

Learning programming at some point - maybe impractical for some, but that definitely changed the way I think about a lot of stuff going on in our lives.

What are your hobbies?

I love being creative. Besides coding, I’m interested in UI/UX stuff. I’m also a musicophilia, having spent a lot of time with my guitar. I’m into many different varieties of genres, but hard rock and fusion may be my favorite ones. I think I would be a musician if I wasn’t becoming a developer.

Have you travelled anywhere recently?

Yep. I’m somewhat of a travelholic. I’ve been in Shanghai for a few months, but before that, I visited Dali, Chengdu and Tibet last year.

Book/movie you’ve read/seen that has inspired you?

School of Rock, The Shawshank Redemption, Into the Wild, Whiplash, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Just to name a few.

What motto do you live by?

Get inspired, be inspiring.
