Hey! I'm Arash.

I'm learning to create designed, intuitive, and practical products using technology.

👋 Say hi

I'm a student + developer from Singapore learning to make things with code. Having an interest since young, I now study information technology at a polytechnic, embark on interesting personal projects (when I have the time), and rage at random and obscure errors from time to time.

For as long as I can remember, tech has always been my kind of thing. As I grew acquainted with it, I remain enthusiastic in seeing how I can benefit from and continue to develop it. I've been at this since 2019 (a few years ago!), and I've since explored new domains of programming ever since at my own pace. Right now, front-end development, CLI tools, mobile app development, and a bit of UI and UX seem to be my kind of jam.

I'm a firm believer in the community behind code, and I'm trying my best to learn something different and new every day. I've run special interest groups at school, helped planned workshops across the world, and documented some parts of my journey publically. With what tech and the people behind it can offer, there are many more exciting things to come too!

I'm excited to get to know new people. Once you've gotten to know me a little better here, feel free to reach out if you'd like to say hi!

Show and tell!

Working on personal projects is my favourite pastime. I love the concept of learning something new, especially when I get the chance to directly apply it to projects; not many things are better than seeing something working after hours of trying! I try to make things with polish, but I'll leave it up to you to decide whether things look good.

Here's what I know:

You can never learn too much about something. I've had the chance to hone skills in several domains since starting out, and I intend to keep getting better at them. There are just so many languages, frameworks, and tools to explore especially in tech, and I'd love to give as many as possible a shot. Here are a few that I know now!
