Hi, I'm Yiying.

Front End Developer

About Me

My name is Yiying Zou and I'm a front end web developer based in Toronto.

I built my first website at 11 years old and turned my childhood hobby into a career. I combine my creativity and problem-solving skills to create beautiful, user-friendly websites. As a self-motivated learner who values collaboration, I love to learn from others, share my knowledge, and contribute to a team.

When I'm not writing code, you'll find me painting (I'm into oil & digital!), dancing to some 90s tunes, or managing a tech community online. I also write about my thoughts on coding on my blog.
