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 primarily write JavaScript, with a further interest in Serverless, Vue.js (with Nuxt.js) and Airtable.

📧 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.
