About Me


Hi, my name is Varun. I’m a 17-year-old, self-taught programmer from Florida. I’ve been passionate about computer science, namely embedded systems, since I started working with the Python programming language and Arduino platform.

My programming journey began at the age of 14 when I started creating my own simple text-based games such as Blackjack and Chō-han. Nowadays, I create projects that make use of 3D printing, microcontrollers, and webservers. I’ve developed projects for the Congressional App Challenge where I’ve won in 2020 and 2021, representing the 15th Congressional District of the state of Florida.

Alongside programming, I also enjoy filmaking and videography. I typically tie these passions together, creating TikToks under the name BlueHandCoding to showcase my creations. BlueHandCoding has garnered nearly 2.7 million views, 20 thousand followers, and 300 thousand likes. I also teach live programming lessons on teech.tv, where I develop my own curriculum and interact with my students in a class-like environment.

I’m always looking to network and reach out to new people, my socials are above. I’ve also chosen some of the favorite TikToks I’ve made to checkout below, enjoy!
