Portrait of Akash Giri

Software Engineer. I learn, design, and code software products and services.

My path towards software development began during my college years, when I gained experience in Python/Django for academic projects. Subsequently, during an internship, I expanded my skills into Ruby on Rails, before eventually finding my niche in JavaScript/NodeJs. Presently, my focus lies on full-stack development.

Along the way, I've enjoyed sharing the knowledge I've gained through my professional and personal experiences via blog posts and video tutorials. I also make occasional contributions to open-source projects, which help me stay up-to-date with the latest developments in programming and software development.

I excel in challenging environments and am always looking to learn and improve.
