Bonjour 👋

Hello! I’m Shilong Li, a passionate and dedicated Software Engineer currently pursuing my Master of Science in Software Engineering at the University of California, Irvine.

I hold a honored Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science from the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech). My technical expertise spans a wide range of programming languages including Java, Python, Golang, and several others. I’m also proficient in various frameworks and tools like Spring Boot, MyBatis, JUnit, Selenium, and more.

My professional journey includes a stint as a QA Intern at Authentic8 Inc., where I played a crucial role in enhancing product quality through manual and automated testing and contributing to the automation framework. At the University of California, Irvine, I’ve been making a difference as a Teaching Assistant/Grader, mentoring students and grading assignments for a class of over 200.

Previously, I interned as a Software Engineer at Lakala Payment Co. Ltd., where I helped develop a test automation framework, significantly improved application efficiency, and contributed to a more efficient CI/CD pipeline.

I have worked on numerous projects, including the development of a Simple Search Engine that efficiently crawled, stored, and ranked websites; Fuzzy Replay for Web UI Testing, which improved the automation and effectiveness of web testing; and making significant contributions to the open-source community by fixing issues in popular repositories. Other projects include Taxi Trip Visualization, Network Traffic Analysis for monitoring and securing network traffic, and the creation of Phantom OJ, an online assessment system that streamlines grading and offers a multi-secured, multi-authority environment. My work demonstrates a strong background in software engineering, programming, and research, showcasing my ability to tackle diverse challenges in the field.

I’m always eager to apply my skills to challenging problems and contribute to the advancement of technology in software engineering.
