About me

Who am I?

I am Ramachandran (RC) and I currently work as a Full Stack Engineer at Pro.com, Seattle.

What do I do?

I have been fiddling with computers since I got my first Intel x386/MS-DOS 6.22/Win 3.1 PC when I was 10 years old. My first programming language was Pascal and the first program that I was proud of writing was a Sudoku solver!

Nothing gives me the kicks like building a concept from an idea blip to a fully functional system! My current interests include Open Source, Ruby, React, TypeScript, DevOps, Performance and Design.

Thanks for visiting my site. Cheers!
