Let’s make Ruby go fast - 18,000 MPH fast! Using the popular space simulator Kerbal Space Program and some remote procedure calls, we’re going to use Ruby to launch (simulated) rockets into space. Using the algorithms and techniques developed for the Apollo Guidance Computer, we’ll write a program that can manage several tasks concurrently but also survive hard restarts and unplanned errors. Finally, we’ll launch a Saturn V rocket, controlled by a Ruby program that emulates space computers of the past.
Lessons learnt in pursuit of growth
I am an extremely passionate software developer. I am also a co-founder of a software development company called Zero One, a co-organizer of a Ladies that UX meetup group and a co-founder of an NPO called Kasi-Maths focussed in the education sector.
I love being able to constantly learn new and exciting things that I can put into practice.
Growth has always been a vital part in ensuring that I lead a meaningful career.
Recently, I’ve been given the opportunity to be a part of a Techwomen program in Silicon Valley, and it has expanded my mind to lessons that have helped me to progress in my career.
I’d love to share my learnings around the value of mentorship, diversity in leadership, the art of storytelling and the gratification of social impact.

In 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) began offering IT infrastructure services to businesses in the form of web services -- now commonly known as cloud computing. One of the key benefits of cloud computing is the opportunity to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with low variable costs that scale with your business. With the Cloud, businesses no longer need to plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance. Instead, they can instantly spin up hundreds or thousands of servers in minutes and deliver results faster. Today, Amazon Web Services provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world.
