Nick Ang

November 2020 update: I'm writing a novel! Follow my progress here.

Hey, I'm Nick Ang.

I'm a guy from Singapore, currently living in Berlin. 👋

This is my digital garden, where I sow new ideas, tend to the growing and matured ones, and occasionally prune the undesirable. It's open for visitation.

But like a real-life garden, expect organised chaos when you browse the blog.

I was born in Singapore, lived there my whole life, and am currently living in Berlin, Germany. At 30, making this move remains one of my proudest accomplishments because I have dreamed since I was in primary school to experience life abroad. So I guess that means I am living my dream.

Professionally, and I should say at the moment, I am a software engineer. My strengths are my ability to learn and teach. I currently work full-time as a service operations engineer at Smartly.io, a Finnish ad-tech company.

I'm proud of the fact that I’ve taught close to 100 people (strangers and colleagues) how to code from scratch.

Other facts:

  • I'm married and have a toy poodle Brownie who has his own Instagram account
  • Once I tried to create a "laptop for writers" as a startup that failed. Now I unironically write on a product created (later) by another company Astrohaus. They call it the Freewrite and I love my Freewrite
  • My major is in Environmental Studies from NUS. I don't remember 95 percent of what I learned but rely on the other 5 percent every moment to help me think about the world

I collated some things that I would recommend, like podcasts and blogs, in the Recommendations corner.

So, that's my public persona in brief. Send me a direct message on twitter or email to talk!
