I'm Dexter De Leon. Formerly a Teaching Assistant at General Assembly London for the Software Engineering Immersive course, and currently freelancing in full stack web development.
Working with software has been a hobby of mine for a long time, starting out with modding computer games and using software to edit videos or drawings. In the last couple of years, after learning some HTML and CSS online, I took up freelancing part-time in Front-End Web Development, with clients mostly consisting of small local businesses.
Wanting to be able to go into development full-time; I decided to take General Assembly's Web Development (now Software Engineering) Immersive course, where I learned how to create full-stack web apps, and became a much more confident developer.
Outside of code, I still enjoy editing videos and drawing in Photoshop as a hobby, as well as playing the guitar and singing. My love of taking on both logical and creative challenges is what really makes me want to pursue a career in development, where logical and creative endeavours can come together to create new and exciting things!
