Bangalore, India

I'm an undergraduate studying at Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, New Delhi. I expect to graduate with a Bachelors degree in May 2016.

Secured Asia Pacific rank 73 and All India rank 17 in Round A APAC Test 2016

Just completed my internship at HackerRank as a Software Intern.

Recently, my team won first prize at HackForHire organized by TLabs. We developed an application to measure and visualize the behaviour and attitude of followers of a particular Twitter account based on the tweets/replies.

I have worked with a B2B start-up Refiral in it's initial stage wherein I was mainly involved in development of server-side API in PHP and managing & automating their administration dashboard end-to-end. Recently Refiral raised $330K angel funding.

I've worked/studied at these places...

My projects...

Bulk URL Shortener

A web app developed using Google URL Shortening API to shorten URLs in bulk. It lets users shorten multiple URLs with just one click!

A web app developed as a part of a development challenge. It helps you to see what people around you are tweeting. Tweets are shown as markers on Google Maps.

Twitter Instant

A web-app developed on Twitter API for performing #hashtag searches instantly, at the speed of thought!

Developed an API using Python & Bottle, to expand the shortened URLs. It works with URLs containing multiple redirects as well.

A chrome extension to keep a track on the keywords user types in google, so as to keep track of your google queries and if you need to search something again, they are just one click away!

Chrome Time-Conversion Extension

A chrome extension for conversion of timestamp to readable date format. Some may not find a point in this, but believe me, as a back-end developer, I use this extension more than any other extension.

Tweet Bot

A fun project using Twitter API Python SDK. It tweets random stuff from a .txt file periodically.

Tweetogram

A Twitter API demonstration application with all possible actions permitted with the use of Twitter API. View profile, hashtag search and tweet are some of the nice features.

Laptop Battery Alarm

One of the my most useful self-projects, a batch script to play 'beep' sound when laptop battery gets fully charged, as a reminder to unplug the charger.

Brickbuster Game

Created this amazing bricks buster game in just 3 hours of continuous coding. I was probably at my peak while coding this, in that cold romantic weather.

Connect-4 Game

A Connect-4 game created using PyGame. This was my first project using Pygame.

Web Viewport

A viewport to check responsiveness of a website and decide the breakpoints while developing a responsive website.

Basically I'm that guy with a kick-ass resumé...
