About

Hi! I’m Preetesh, a Developer and Designer based in Pune, India. Currently, I am the Product Head at WittyPen. Previously, I was a freelancer and built quality websites and software for clients across the globe. I have also developed Branding and Corporate identity solutions for small to medium-sized organizations in the past. In my college days, I’ve held the roles of a Microsoft Student Partner and Firefox Student Ambassador, under which I’ve trained students how to code and design.

Writing

Much of my original writing resides at Ken. Although, I have an automated blog on Tumblr as well, with a custom theme that I built in my early days of Frontend Development. It is now authored by carefully deployed IFTTT bots. Here’s the link: http://preeteshjain.tumblr.com (heads up: it’s a bit outdated now, but the content is always fresh).

Skills

Front-end Development, Graphic Design, Hybrid Mobile Apps, Windows and Windows Phone Apps, WordPress Development, Woocommerce Development, MVC Architecture and Frameworks (PHP), Logo Design, Branding and Corporate Identity, Social Media Management

Under the hood: PHP, Python, C#, XAML, HTML5/CSS3, ReactJS, jQuery, Sass, Git, Grunt, Azure, WordPress, CodeIgniter, Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro

Currently Learning: Angular2

Work Environment

OS: Linux Mint 18 “Sarah” for Development, Windows 10 Pro for designing

Machine: I call it Dragon’s Dream. Here are some pictures. It’s a Core i7-4790K fused in a MSI Z97 Gaming 3 Motherboard with 8GB G.SKILL RipjawsX memory, all housed in a sleek white NZXT S340.

Editor: Sublime Text 3 with this theme. I’ve tried others as well, Brackets/Atom/VSCode and I still prefer Sublime Text. Until something better comes up. Who knows?

Tabs or Spaces? Spaces. Although, I am not like Richard, who’ll get mad at you just because you happen to be on the other side.

Music? Of course! Music and Code go a long way. Here’s my Spotify profile, and here’s my Last.fm profile.

Coffee? I prefer Tea. Although I love Cappuccino.
