I'm a Software Engineer working on web applications since 2013. I started off with Java and Python back in the day. I have worked with VMware in the Bay Area for a couple of years. I started working with Ruby in 2016 and have been a Ruby on Rails developer ever since.
I love working with Ruby and its ethos of developer-friendliness. I like Ruby's English-friendly syntax and its magical way of how sometimes a method "just works". There is always something new to learn when it comes to Ruby and Ruby on Rails.
I also like following the Rails way as much as possible. I'm a big fan of the majestic monolith and writing full-stack Rails apps. I also have experience working with the latest in Rails tech such as Hotwire Turbo Frames and Stimulus. I have made a few open source contributions in Rails including this website and also created a gem in one of my previous companies.
I like writing clean code that is easier to maintain and modify. I also consider testing a crucial part of the software engineering process as it helps reduce cognitive overload. I'm a big fan of following proper software engineering practices to deliver high quality software.
My way of keeping up with the latest in Rails is by reading newsletters, listening to podcasts and following the Ruby community folks on Twitter. I also like watching Youtube streams and conference videos and have been trying really hard to trim down my "Watch Later" list on YouTube.
In my spare time, I play soccer for a local team. I'm a Chelsea fan as far as English Premier league is concerned. I'm also a big foodie and like travelling all over the world eating local food.
