Hi! I'm Kevin Lewis (he/him)
A Bit About Me
💼 I'm a Developer Advocate at Vonage, where I support developers discover, understand and build using our APIs. My focus is supporting developers in London (and, more broadly, EMEA).
- I write technical blog posts.
- I used to host a fortnightly coding stream aimed at beginners called No Experience Required, but now have a show called Build a Thing where we build a project together over several weeks - you can watch it on the VonageDevs Twitch.
- I work on our champions program - Vonage Voyagers.
- I support community event organizers take their events online.
- I also run some internal programmes such as our hackathon series OneHack and the educational activity that surrounds it.
💖 I'm an experienced event organizer
📧 I write a newsletter called event.Handler() which is all about running awesome developer events. We're also turning it into a podcast!
🎲 I love boardgames! My collection is here.
