Full-Stack Web Developer

Hi, I'm Ifu! I throw kicks and sling code.


About Me

Ifu is a weird-ass kid from Chi-Town whose passions include software development and practicing Shaolin kung fu (Chicago Shaolin Temple, holla!) She's a MakerSquare alumna and currently works as a software engineering apprentice at DevMynd Software in Chicago. If you are enthusiastic about a thing, you should email her and tell her all about how this one thing is so awesome and how everyone should know about it.
