Hello, I'm Vinay Raghu 🙏

I'm a software engineer who loves solving complex problems through design and code. I have been developing websites since 2000 (remember geocities?).

I write Javascript Typescript all day and manage a team of engineers. I'm passionate about user experience.

I host a UX podcast and organize Boston JS and UX Boston meetup groups. I have a video course with O'Reilly on UI Animation. I give talks on Javascript and have written technical articles for several publications.

I enjoy traveling, building local communities and spending time with my family.

Building software since 2009

I've been fortunate to have worked in a variety of teams.
