About

I am Liv Asch, a Software Engineer for Amazon in Edinburgh, Scotland. You can also call me Livvy or Olivia, and my pronouns are she/her. All content on this blog is my own and does not represent the views of Amazon or any of its employees.

Most of my work is done in React and Typescript. I am also a fan of MDX for mixing Markdown with React.

A key focus in my work is accessibility – ensuring content is available to everyone, regardless of circumstance. I am always happy to talk about accessibility or give advice.

The site

This site is built using React and Next.js, and is hosted on Netlify. Behind the scenes, the content is managed using Netlify CMS. The entire site is open source so you can see how it's built on Github.
