About me

Kang Chun Fan

Hi my name is Kang Chun Fan. My goal is to become a backend engineer or a data engineer, therefore, I am currently woking on to enhance my ability to handle backend services also taking courses related to artificial intellegence. As for a long term schedule, I am planning to do some projects related to backend handling, especially in the part to manage large-scale data, which might be useful in machine learning too.

My hobby
