Hey, I'm Rajeev Edmonds—a Rust developer with strong roots in system programming. I'm a self-taught developer. No degrees.
I started my career as a C programmer building IVRS (Interactive Voice Response System) applications for Windows and Linux platforms.
I work on backend (Rust) technologies with an emphasis on building CLI and dev tooling applications.
More About Me (On the Personal Side)
I live in New Delhi, India. When I'm not eyeballing computer monitors, I love to play chess with my friends. Occasionally, I watch crime thrillers and documentaries related to world history.
Unlike most programmers, I neither take coffee nor tea to give a stir to the mind. The coding work itself is the desired mental stimuli needed for the grey cells.
Dev Tools and Peripherals I Use!
I use Featherlite Helix Chair and a Wooden Street Brason study table for my seating arrangement.
I'm not a fan of huge monitors or a multi-monitor setup. I have an old HP Pavilion Series laptop which still works fine and is generally used for testing or general work.
Currently, for development, I use HP Spectre x360 (2021 Edition) and a System76 Darter Pro Linux box. No Mac here!
For backups, I use Backblaze and a local Synology 2 Bay NAS DiskStation DS220+ box stacked with two Seagate BarraCuda 4TB hard drives.
With plenty of code editors to choose from, one can easily get confused while comparing the feature set. I started with Sublime Text, used Brackets for a short period, and finally settled with Visual Studio Code which I currently use for all of my coding sessions.
