Hey, I'm Morgan Shadung

I'm a Software Engineer based in Gauteng, South Africa.


So what stack do I like?

I believe in using the right tool to solve the problem at hand. However, I do enjoy using the following technologies to do my work: GoLang(I'm loving this one), Laravel, PHP, Javascript, Flutter & Dart, MySQL, Bash, Docker. I spend quite a lot of time sharpening my problem approaching skills, and this propels me to keep learning.

So, I'm into .
