Hello, I'm Idriss Kone.
I'm a web developer  

About Me

Brief Rundown:

I've always had a passion for coding, I started when I was 12. Ever since, it's been a goal of mine to make the world a better place and to improve people's lives using my skills as a programmer. I enjoy doing the frontend side of projects but I don't shy away from a challenge such as backend! I've recently been learning NodeJs with Express in order to make more fullstack applications.

Whenever I'm not at my desk making my back pains worse, I enjoy building PCs, playing video games, streaming on Twitch and working out.
