Greetings! I’m Velma Akinyi, an innovative Elixir developer with a passion for building efficient software solutions. With a strong background in Elixir, Phoenix, Liveview, PostgreSQL, and REST API development, I thrive on crafting code that not only meets but exceeds the demands of mission-critical projects.
In my current role at Podii in Kisumu County, Kenya, I’ve played a role in developing and optimizing backend systems, resulting in a remarkable improvement in system responsiveness. My expertise extends to designing and maintaining REST APIs, achieving impressive API reliability. As part of an Agile team, I implemented efficient logic programming techniques.
My proficiency extends beyond coding; I’ve managed complex database tasks in PostgreSQL, enhancing data integrity and reducing query response. Beyond technical contributions, I took the lead in event planning and team coordination for tech events, such as Google IO and Women Tech Makers, resulting in an increase in attendee satisfaction.
Prior to my current role, I honed my skills during an internship at ALX in Kenya. There, I collaborated with development teams to identify and remove software bugs. I actively contributed to an improvement in overall software quality and demonstrated a commitment to continuous improvement in software development practices.
Whether it’s optimizing code, solving complex problems, or effectively collaborating in a team, I am dedicated to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in software development. Let’s innovate together!
