About Me

Hello my name's Yasiru, people call me Yas. I'm from Colombo, Sri Lanka. I'm 17 years old and I am currently a student at Trinity College Kandy. I enjoy programming and almost anything related to computers. How computers function really amazed me and here I am digging deeper into the field and building my career doing what I love.

Taking apart things and breaking them, making something different, & fiddling around with circuits, this was my thing. I got my hands on my dad's laptop and I ruined it trying to do things I didn't know. I got my own computer in grade 9 where I wrote my first ever "program", it was a windows batch file game that worked on the terminal. I was in boarding school so I didn't have much time to do things with my computer, the only time I get to use my computer was on weekends when I got home.

When Covid started things changed, lockdown is what really got me going. I met a lot of people online, one of them was a developer that encouraged me to learn JavaScript. I wanted to build a discord bot and that was when I programmed something with an actual programming language. Since then I've been learning and building various things like chatbots, websites, automation programs, & web scrappers.

Skill Set

This is my skill set, what I'm good and bad at. Please note that this is work in progress, I still have a lot to learn and cover.

PythonThis is the language I've used the most. I have been coding discord bots, general computer applications & things to fiddle around with. I've mostly worked with discord.py, Django, PyQt, pillow, & matplotlib. I know how to debug python code, data classes, python coding standards, how to make use of OOP & much more.
I've worked with JQuery, Node.js, React and Next.js in the field of web development. I'm familliar with JSX and how to manipulate the DOM structure with bare JS.
