Nicholus Muwonge

React developer
  • Ideal project length 1-6 months
  • Location Uganda
  • Available from February 26, 2020

I am a software engineer with a passion to build products that will impact an end user's life out there positively. My go-to stack is React in the front end and Python ( Flask and Django in the back end). To hone the skills that aid me in reaching my topmost dreams, I dedicated myself to learning something new every day, being very ready for unforeseen challenges and learning from others.

I take pride in the fact that I followed my passion and switched careers to software development which makes it not seem like work most of the time. I am currently in the market for a new job preferably with cool people and with a remote setting working on cutting edge products.

Outside software development, I am always on the lookout for new tech pops in the phone scene and just cool music because I am a great musician too.
