My name is Akshay, and I am a software developer based in Victoria, BC. I work remotely as a full-stack developer for Toronto-based Cambridge Brain Sciences, working on cognitive function assessment software that is used by healthcare practitioners and researchers around the world.
I've been programming for the past decade, striving to write quality software that solves real problems to deliver value to the users.
I have more than five years of professional experience as a full-stack web application developer, and have worked on all layers of the web stack, including the back-end, front-end, and database. For a long time, I was a .NET developer, programming in C#, .NET, Windows, and Azure. However, in early 2021, I started learning Ruby and Rails for one of my side-projects.
After working with C# and .NET for the past six years, Ruby was a breath of fresh air. Within a week, I was in love with this beautiful programming language and the opinionated web framework. After immersing myself in Ruby and Rails for a few months, I made a big decision to switch from being an enterprise C#/.NET programmer to a Ruby and Rails web developer.
As a software developer, my primary goal is to build useful software that solves problems and provides value to the users, and I approach all my projects with the same mindset. I am very passionate about software development, always looking forward to learning new skills to become a better software developer.
Thanks for stopping by.
