A few fancy words that describe me: INTJ, Technophile, FOSS and Python aficionado.
And here are a few things that I do :
Contribute to the Open Source world.
I really love the open source world. I'm an active contributor to few Open Source organizations and previously a Google Summer Of Code Student for coala.
Freelance Software Development
I like to work on challenging Freelance projects. I'm also a Codementor. Till now, I've worked on projects related to Data Science, Website Development, Python and Decentralized Applications.
Make interesting projects.
Like everyone else, I have a hell lot of awesome ideas which I'd love to work on. Whenever I get time, I dive into implementing some of them. If you're interested in knowing what kind of projects have I worked upon in the past, here's a few of them:
Offlow This was a project that I made with couple of my friends at MHacks 8. It's an Offline personal assistant and Data transfer utility that works using Ultrasonic Waves.
There are lots of them and I'm too lazy to mention them here :p. Feel free to check my Github, collaborate (if you like them), or share your views.
Write articles and tutorials
I write about tech. Some of my works have been trending on the front page of HackerNews, and been covered by popular tech Newsletters and Podcasts.
Ocassionaly write about stuff about "life", and poems.
Unfortunately, my writings are present at discrete platforms, but most of my posts can be found here
Attend Hackathons and conferences
It's been two years since I've been a "Hackathon Hacker" and it had been an excellent journey so far. I somehow managed to win few of them (but lost in way more). I really love the exposure and the inspiration I get from the variety of hacks from hackers like me. Attending such events have helped me enhance my development skills, leadership, creativity, and ability to work under pressure. I've also been a speaker at Pycon India and was also invited to speak at EuroPython 2017.
Also, can't help but mention, these Hackathons have also given me opportunities to explore and visit cities like New York , Michigan and Kuala Lumpur.
Pursue research projects
I've spent most of my research time on Generative Adversarial Networks. Some of the topics that I've worked upon are: "Image generation from text captions", "Image Deblurring using GANS", "Generating realistic images from Drawings".
Besides GANs few of my research topics till now include:
Combining forecasting models using Machine Learning techniques.
Reinforcement Learning (check out my Github for RL simulations of classic snake game and self-driving cars)
Read, crawl, and learn!
I'm a self-improvement junkie, and I absolutely love to immerse myself in the ocean of wisdom non-fiction books provide.
In short bursts of free time, I crawl Medium, Reddit and Quora.
Some technologies that never stop to fascinate me:
I spend time figuring out how new applications work, and work on some projects of my own related to these technologies.
I follow a lot of tech-newsletters weekly to know what's happening in tech world. My personal favourite being: Benedict Evans.
Cricket, I follow cricket a lot. Back in my school days, I wanted to be a cricketer and used to play a lot of cricket.
I'm a foodie by heart. I like to try new food wherever I go and not to mention that my Mom cooks the best food on the earth.
I tend to watch a lot of Youtube videos (I prefer videos over books when I have a choice). Some of my favorite youtube channels are "Sirajology," "Techquickie," "ASAP Science," "TEDx talks" and "Fight Mediocrity."
Just Crawl the internet. Why? because ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
What am I upto these days?
Well, I'm hunting for full-time opportunities, and I'm also on a search for finding awesome collaborators for some of my recent projects related to Decentralized Applications.
