Hello, this is Tide. Born in 1989 in Northern-east of China and currently living and working in Tokyo.

My first 2 companies Intersoft and JXPress offered me a lot of opportunities to develop applications using various of programming languagues. I'm still very thankful to the opportunities that'd been granted an ameteur like me.

Most of my work experience is highly frontend focused. But there are yet a lot backend tasks through out my career. Thus, I usually consider myself as a full-stack developer.
