Praveen Perera
Software Developer

About

My name is Praveen Perera and I am a full stack developer residing in Oakville ON, Canada. I started developing simple websites with HTML/CSS and JavaScript 6 years ago. Since then I have greatly improved my skill sets. I now have 4+ years of development experience with Ruby and Ruby on Rails in the backend and Javascript in the frontend.

Over the past 1.5 years I have been largely working with the functional programming language Elixir and the Phoenix Framework. In the front end I have been largely using React/Redux, and more recently Elm. Additionally, I have also worked on a few different cross platform mobile applications using React Native.

My current preferred stack to work with is Elixir/Phoenix and Elm, with a PostgreSQL database. But I am also a strong believer in using the right tool for the job.
