Torvalds chose his English name based on his idol Linus Benedict Torvalds, the creator of Linux. Torvalds made up his mind long ago to become a full-stack engineer and embarked on the path of no return. He studied some of the most cutting edge frameworks such as ReactJS and VueJS. He's also begun to venture into DDD and C. He enjoys math and watching movies, and the motto he lives by is "True mastery with the heart of a humble apprentice. Don't be afraid of the unknown."
