About Ruben Arakelyan
I’m Ruben Arakelyan, a London-based full-stack web developer and technical leader. I currently work as a lead developer for the Government Digital Service and co-founded Recollate with Andy Callaghan. In my spare time, I like to code and blog. You can see my LinkedIn profile for more details of my work.
I have worked for Royal Dutch Shell as a Business Analyst and latterly orderswift as the Lead Developer.
My current specialism is Ruby, and in particular Ruby on Rails, as well as the usual front-end languages. However, I have also worked extensively with PHP, and in particular Laravel and Wordpress.
I started off on this computing journey way back when I was 15 or 16. My first computer was bought from a charity shop for £10 and contained one of these beauties. Via many generations of Windows and Linux PCs, I arrived at the Mac phase of my life. Starting when I was at university, I had a few Mac laptops, an iMac or two and a Mac mini. I currently work on a custom-built PC running Windows 10 and an Ubuntu virtual machine.
This is my site where I blog about my work whenever there’s something interesting to share.
