In past decade or so, my various roles required to act as a Team Lead / Product Owner, managing the technical side of the projects, building bridges between the engineering and business side of the things, and writing code alongside. I always try to be hands-on, reading up on emerging tech and how it can improve my work and my contribution to the project at hand.

Web Application Development I can be a part of the startup journey, building POCs, MVPs and transforming to a live product in production. I can also embed into an existing codebase and provide assistance for feature building, maintenance and optimisation. My preferred tech stack is Python and Django with variety of SQL and No-SQL data stores, deployed to a dedicated or cloud environment.
