What brings you here? Anyway, it’s great to have you here. My name is Francis Kim – I was born in Korea, grew up in New Zealand and now I am living in Melbourne, Australia.

I’m an aspiring startup founder, or an entrepreneur. Is that called a wantrepreneur? I’ll make it happen though. I’ve given myself 3 years to make my first million 😀 as of 2016… so that’s $1,000,000 by 2019!

I’ve pretty much been coding the past say, 17 years or so. I’m 32 years old, and the main things I code these days is Magento, Node.js, Angular, React, Meteor and quite a bit of automation via CasperJS (PhantomJS). Go might be up next, but I have way too many creative ideas to stay in a 9 to 5 much longer. I have an entreprenurial mindset; I am a growth hacker, a creative engineer, a visionary, a dreamer, and a student of life.

12apps.co is my little initiative to launch 12 MVPs a year and apply some of the lean startup methodologies, so I write up about the inception of the idea, coding, launching/shipping the product and post-launch analytics. So far, 1 has failed miserably, and 1 is having some moderate success – do check it out 🙂
