About me

I'm Heshan Wanigasooriya (Hesh) and I'm a certified hands-on full-stack software developer, consultant, writer currently living in New York City, NY. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and Engineering (B.Sc Hons.).

I am very passionate about Web, Mobile, REST technologies. As a professional senior full stack engineer at Phase2 Technology, I provide guidance and implementation solutions to companies looking to leverage the power of web using modern Web and Mobile technologies, helping come up with pragmatic web and mobile solutions that make business sense.

I believe that in order to be a relevant and effective software engineering lead, one needs to remain a deeply knowledgeable, up-to-date, and productive software developer. To this end, I enjoys remaining hands-on.

I have huge portfolio of  open source projects that I have contributed to. I was lucky to work with many open source platforms early in my career and contribute code, documentation to many including the following and not limited to those:

and patches to: 

and many more in coding, writing and community work including speaks about, blogs about, and trains people on Web, HTTP, REST, React, React Native, Node.js.
