ReadMe, one of the most popular and active platforms in the IT sphere, celebrated its third anniversary recently.
Founded in 2012, ReadMe www.readme.lk is gaining popularity in the IT industry as providing unbiased news that is of international standard. Ranging from hardware reviews to event coverage, which includes hackathons and conferences to opinion pieces about the tech and IT industry, the company has been on the forefront for the latest in Sri Lanka’s tech scene.
Furthermore, the team at ReadMe has been working relentlessly to make sure that the readers get quality content every single time. To help out with this, they have also launched ReadMe Sinhala, which now can be accessed www.readme.lk/sinhala.
A true start-up, founded by two dynamic youngsters Andrew Jebaraj and Enosh Praveen, ReadMe kicked off in 2012 as solely a two-man project. They came up with the brand ‘ReadMe’ which means a file, usually a document accompanying an application that acts as a user manual. That’s precisely what they envisioned for ReadMe-to be the place for anything IT related. Even their motto is ‘Enriching IT awareness’.
Speaking about the start-up ethos and the new addition, Jebaraj and Praveen in a joint statement said, “We are happy about where we are now within the market and we want to especially thank all who supported us to reach this level. The journey has not been an easy one but with the sheer dedication and commitment from everyone on the team. The adoption of Sinhala to the site enables us to tap into a greater reader base and also helps us to build our reputation for delivering high-quality content regardless of language.”
They further added, “Up to December 2014, the team operated from their homes, usually meeting up only for events and the random movie nights. Then, by a stroke of luck we stumbled upon the perfect place to house a new office.”
Currently the team consists of Andrew, Enosh, Yudhanjaya, Mahesh, Mazin, Binura, Ushan and Malshan, with Aqeel and Ravishangar on website and graphics and Tharindu and Thamburu on ReadMe Sinhala. Whilst Andrew and Enosh take care of the business side of things, it’s up to these 10 young individuals to keep the English and Sinhala content at ReadMe.lk alive and content rich.
