Summary

I am a software developer with a decade of working experience. Specializing in the .NET and Ruby stack. For the past few years I am focusing on service oriented, event driven architecture and technologies. Before that, I worked extensively on stand alone desktop, mobile and web applications. During my career I have developed a great appreciation for automated testing and deployment.I enjoy being part of teams that build great products. Whenever needed, I can act as a mentor or a mentee; after all, there is always something new to learn.
