Software Development Engineer

Hello! I am Jiwon Nam, software engineer. I love thinking about ideas for new project, writing those down, planning, and launching plans to real action!

I also like to build an algorithm for solving problems.

*One funny story related to this: My friend and I wanted to play random number picker game to share chocolates. We tried to find the game on Internet, but it was hard.

So... I created simple one, and everything worked wonderful. It is secret that I picked '8' out of numbers from 1 to 10!
