Hong Minhee — Résumé

Personal Details






+82 10-3229-7392


I first encountered computers and the internet in 1995, and started coding in 2000 when I was in middle school. In 2004, when I was still in high school, I started outsourcing software production on a freelance basis, and have worked as a full-time professional software engineer since 2007. I’ve contributed to free/open source software since I was a student. I am not only obsessed with technology, but also view software development as work and value teamwork and collaboration. My strengths are that I am good at synthesizing complex situations, and taking conflicting opinions and building consensus, which is what my colleagues often tell about me.
