I'm Luke Shiru, web developer, hobbyist DJ and casual gamer.
I am a passionate tech enthusiast whose love for technology began with a bootleg Famicom and a secondhand SEGA Genesis rescued from the trash. Growing up in Argentina, I spent hours at cybercafes, immersing myself in games and forming long-lasting friendships with like-minded individuals. I enrolled in a technical high school, dedicating 10 hours a day for three years to become a programmer. After achieving my dream of becoming a programmer, I took a year off to reconnect with friends and discovered my passion for DJing.
Determined to broaden my skillset, I pursued two paths simultaneously: enrolling in a school to obtain a “System Analysis Technician” degree and teaching myself web development. As my skillset grew, I started sharing my knowledge by giving technical talks at events in my city. My self-taught path ultimately led to my success, landing my first job at a small studio and eventually a multinational company.
I began freelancing, working with clients in the US, and it was a transformative experience, allowing me to apply my expertise to exciting new projects and travel outside my home country for the first time. Eventually, I received an offer from a US-based company, which I accepted and moved to the US in March 2020.
Despite the challenging circumstances of moving during COVID, I persevered and found a new way to share my passion for web development through educational streams on Twitch. It has been an enriching experience to connect with others and share my knowledge. My unconventional path has allowed me to learn at my own pace and build a career that I am genuinely passionate about.
