About Me

Hey, I’m Rishi Raj Jain. I'm a Software Engineer, Developer, Designer, and Writer. I work as a Solutions Engineer at Layer0. I love to bring a positive attitude to the table, and like to spend my free time in nature or enjoying myself with family and friends. (Ultra) Bullet Chess is my favourite sport.

My Timeline

2021
Storyblok Ambassador

Giving back to the community, tools and technologies is one of the most rewarding things to me. Read about my journey here.

Joined Layer0 πŸš€

I'm extremely excited about this new role helping front-end developers to live on the edge, and prefetch at scale for speed.

Gave my first coding session! πŸŽ‰ Topic: 'Dynamically Static Blogs'

Establishing an online presence is hard, isn't it? Have you tried to launch your own blogs only to get stuck trying to do it "the right way"? I've been there. I'd waste time dealing with complex tech instead of bringing out myself. Then, I started building my portfolio from scratch with Next.js, TailwindCSS, Storyblok and Layer0 and believe me, it's the best tech stack ever. The session was all about how I deployed a performance-first, incrementally static regenerated blogs without compromising my requirements. Slides
Thanks to Vasu for giving me the opportunity to talk about how I built my portfolio.
