👋, I’m Shane Vitarana.

I’m a software engineer and entreprenuer living in New York. I like to build and work with great teams, and write software that has a positive impact on the world. You can follow me on Twitter, check out my code on GitHub, and read my comments on Hacker News.

Here’s some projects I’ve built or contributed to, and places I’ve worked:

Sometimes I like to write:

In the past I have worked on everything from low-level embedded systems, government cryptography, enterprise backends, to high-level web frameworks and consumer iOS apps. Recently I've been exploring how blockchains and machine learning can be used for social impact. I'm a generalist and believe in using the right tool for the job, but I'm most comfortable with Node, full-stack Swift, and React. I have a M.S. in Computer Engineering and a B.S. in Computer Science, and once played drums in a cover band.

Let's talk!
