I am a…

  • remote-first,
  • freelance,
  • full-stack (what do these labels even mean anymore?)
  • developer
  • at it professionally since 2017, and,
  • as a hobbyist since 2008 (it’s been a while huh?)

I’m currently working with an independent review platform for education technology products worldwide.

Name and pronouns.

My pronouns are she/her. I don’t like revealing my full name online en masse. If you’re mentioning me on your website, just ‘Ru’ is fine and in fact, preferred. ☺️

What I do in my free time.

I’ve been blessed with a moderation role over at Fosstodon. In addition, I also moderate a very small, regional, private space for queer people in India. Get in touch if this sounds like your thing.

I support Arsenal F.C. and that’s a big thing I look forward to the weekends for.

I’m pretty burned out with tech in general so self-hosting or coding projects outside of work hours is a rarity. Instead I try to be more IRL, which is definitely easier said than done.

At the moment, I am:

  • Meeting new people.
  • Resting and taking care of myself.
  • Working on my weight loss.
  • Saying yes more than no when it comes to new activities.

In the future, I want to:

  • Travel more, hike, jog.
  • Go to concerts.
  • Play music again.
  • Learn to ice-skate.
