INTRODUCING

RAVI LODHIYA

I am an open-minded, experienced software developer specialised in Microsoft Technologies. I helped companies build vibrant solutions. I love building things, whether it is out of code or any other related technologies such as Raspberry PI, Arduino, Kinect, IoT and always love adding value.

I write and build applications that are easy to change and adapt. As business requirements change so the code needs to adopt this. I believe that software and applications are meant to help more and more people carry out their daily routines effortless, simple and yet elegant. I can lead a team and motivate teams, give honest opinion about Software Usability Interfaces and User Experience. I like to focus only on the adding value to customers not some random features that may just look cool.

Whenever I get a chance I write test cases for my legacy codes so that it can be tested through. I am always up for learning about new tools and technologies. So far, I am very familiar with Agile Methodologies, Scrum, XP and Test Driven Development, Behaviour Driven Development. I am fluent in .Net Frameworks, C#, ASP.NET, MVC and SQL Server.

I like to keep things simple. I write clean code and apply professional awareness skills to get solutions to market quickly.I have worked in following industries and sectors: E-commerce, Retail, Franchisee, Software House, Information technologies, Logistics, Digital Office and banking. However, I am more interested to explore for Media, Automated Trading, Digital Marketing, and Branding using AI.
