My name is Ruti, and I am a software developer.

I didn't follow the traditional path to Computer Science. After 8 years as a Product Leader at several startups and one giant corporation, I built relationships with users and was the first to hear what they wanted. That, combined with my compulsion to get things done, led me first into Software Development.

When I'm not coding, you can find me outdoors (running, cycling, hiking, or swimming), cooking with my farmer's market bounty, or attempting to reupholster old furniture

Thanks for listening.
