👋, I’m Shane Vitarana.

I’m a software engineer and tech entrepreneur living in New York (and sometimes San Francisco). I like to work with great teams, and develop technology 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 worked on, and places I've worked at:

Sometimes I like to write:

...and give talks:

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 researching how blockchains can be used for social and environmental impact. I'm a generalist and believe in using the right tool for the job. I like to write clean, simple, well-architected code that's extensible and future-proof. 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!
