Hi, I’m Ruben

I’m a web developer in Cornwall, UK.

I’m currently Lead Developer at Resolver. LinkedIn has more details of my work history, and GitHub has all my code.

I’m a web developer by trade but also like to tinker in other areas like home automation.

I’ve been spending too much time with computers for as long as I can remember. From my first PC, bought for £10 from a charity shop, all the way through multiple Macs and custom-built PCs, they have been both my day job and my main hobby.

If you’re interested, you can also read more about me.

About this site

This is the umpteenth iteration of my personal website. I’ve moved a number of times between hosting providers, technology stacks and having a blog versus a very plain, low-maintenance landing page. You can find older iterations for my previous websites at ruben.arakelyan.uk, ruben.am and ra.me.uk at the Internet Archive. In addition, most old URLs should still work because cool URIs don’t change.

I’ve deliberately decided to use the latest technologies and not spend time trying to work around browsers that don’t support them. If it looks a bit wonky to you and you’re not using a browser that fully supports current web standards, then unfortunately you’re on your own.

The current version of the site is generated as a static site by Eleventy, stored on GitHub and hosted on AWS Amplify. This means I don’t have to worry about bandwidth, databases, or security patches.

Get in touch

I’m always interested to hear from people about this website, my work, my code or interesting projects. I am not interested in propositions for investment, hiring or mass emails.

You can email me by replacing the first . in this domain name with an @.
