About

I am a software developer/entrepreneur. Enjoy building dev tools, solving problems, talking to people, and hiking. Currently building ReviewNB, review tool for Jupyter Notebooks (think diff, commenting etc. for Notebooks)

I have a masters degree in Software Engineering from Carnegie Mellon. Prior to ReviewNB, I was a developer at Amazon Music team in Seattle & helped build location stack at HyperTrack.

Proficient with Ruby on Rails, Python/Django, Java, and recently picked up some (serious?) chops in VueJS. I have built & managed infrastructure at scale with <all your buzzwords go here>. Strong proponent of automated testing & code reviews as they help us build faster. Also interested in human side of software engineering: development processes, collaboration tools and such.

I live in New Delhi, India. Outside of ReviewNB, I help companies / dev teams with specific technology problems. Currently helping team at GitLab extend their platform to have executable runbooks for DevOps. Write to me at hello@amirathi.com if I can help in any way or if you just want to get in touch.

Open source projects I built:

  • rubix: Python package to enable DevOps tasks in Jupyter Notebooks
  • numcompress: Simple library to compress numerical series into strings

Some blogs I wrote about my work at HyperTrack.
