About Ruben Arakelyan

Ruben Arakelyan

I’m Ruben Arakelyan, a London-based full-stack web developer and technical lead. I currently work as a developer for the Government Digital Service. In my spare time, I like to code and blog. You can see my LinkedIn profile or contact me.

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’ve now arrived at the Mac phase of my life. Starting when I was at university, I’ve had a few Mac laptops, an iMac or two and a Mac mini, and currently work on a MacBook Pro.
