photo of meHey there! I'm Ruien, a computer science student at Purdue University West Lafayette. I enjoy working on programming and hardware projects, as well as playing in CTFs.

You've found my home on the internet, where I post about my projects, thoughts, CTF writeups, etc. Feel free to take a look at my blog!

I currently work for Hack Club (also known as The Hack Foundation), an internationally impactful nonprofit organization that makes it possible for teenagers worldwide to learn and build cool, hacky things. There, I work on the HCB team as both an Operations Specialist and a Ruby Software Engineer, helping to build, maintain, and run the platform that enables our programs to run smoothly.

One of my favorite hobbies is D&D - I'm currently running a game for a group of four players who are new to D&D, and it's been a hit with them so far. I'll be posting regular updates about this on my blog (as soon as I actually get around to doing so).

I also lead asmhole, a CTF team of a couple of my friends and I. We're always looking for new members, so if you're passionate about cybersecurity or solving challenging problems, feel free to shoot an email my way (see below).

My most recent project: .fs, a fully-featured, open-source, and self-hosted file sharing service. I built this mainly because the school administrators at my school decided to make it impossible to access any major file sharing site, and I needed to transfer files to my cloud linux servers. It's built with Next.js, TypeScript, and Tailwind, and it's been a blast to work on.

Want to reach out? Feel free to send an email to [email protected]. I'd love to hear about whatever cool projects you're working on, and I'd love to share about my own. No spam, though, please!
In addition, my GitHub is available here. Let me know what you think of my projects, and maybe star one or two of them!
