Oberon Lai

A person who likes to create business models, websites and web apps, cofounder of "Flash Stories" which has been featured by tech media, also a heavy user of e-book, WordPress and games, has just recently board the island of Animal Crossing. 😀


A freelancer, with 10 years of experience in website projects, I has worked as a front-end engineer for an online game platform, a website planner & front-end engineer for an insurance company, a graphic design assistant and a bookstore clerk. From being a one-man studio, to specializing in front-end engineering and WordPress custom development, I have participated in various types of website projects. I founded Hellowp WordPress hosting service in 2017, gave a speech at WordCamp Taipei in 2018, and successfully uploaded my first plugin in 2019. This year, I continue to work on WordPress development, hoping to create more interesting web apps.
