Hi! I'm Ire Aderinokun
I’m a frontend developer and user interface designer from Lagos, Nigeria.
I’m the Cofounder, COO, and VP Engineering of Helicarrier (YC S18), building cryptocurrency infrastructure for Africa. We're behind products such as Buycoins, Sendcash, Sendcash Pay, and more.
I speak at conferences worldwide, and organise Frontstack, a conference for frontend engineering in Nigeria. I've also written over a hundred technical articles on my blog, bitsofcode.
I am also one of the founding members of the Feminist Coalition, a group of women with a mission to champion equality for women in Nigerian society.
Some other things:
- Frontend Developer Learning Guide - A guide for getting started with frontend development. A list of resources and projects to develop your skills.
- Udacity Scholarship for Nigerian Women - A full scholarship for selected Nigerian women to complete a Udacity Nanodegree of their choosing.
