I have a engineering degree (BE) from PES School Of Engineering, Bangalore. Got my hands dirty at coding by building my first website in 2008 and shipped it on Linux hoisting for the public. Ever since I have spent countless hours in localhost.

These days my work includes

  2. Demonstrating code ownership by performing code reviews, monitor sonar reports & deployments.
  3. Get work done by leading a team of developers. I do interact with cross teams like QA, services & give demos to marketing.
