About

I’m an indie entrepreneur, currently building ReviewNB, a code review tool for Jupyter Notebooks. I like building simple things, reducing complexity & deleting (unused) code. I also enjoy writing, hiking, board games & badminton.

Prior to ReviewNB, I was a developer at Amazon Music team in Seattle & helped build location stack at HyperTrack. Before that, I was a Software Engineering graduate student at Carnegie Mellon.

Proficient with Ruby on Rails, Python/Django, Java, and recently picked up some (serious?) chops in VueJS. I’ve built & managed infrastructure at scale with <all the buzzwords go here>. Strong proponent of automated testing & code reviews as they help us quickly build reliable software & learn from each other. I’m also interested in human side of software engineering- development processes, async collaboration tools and such.

I live in Pune (India) with my wife, mom and Dad (wish I could convince them to adopt a dog!). Outside of ReviewNB, I occasionally help companies solve specific problems E.g. Last year I helped GitLab build executable runbooks for DevOps.

Links to some of my open source contribution & blogs:

  • treon: Test framework for Jupyter Notebooks
  • numcompress: Simple library to compress numerical series into strings
  • rubix: Python package to enable DevOps tasks in Jupyter Notebooks
  • Some articles I wrote are available on medium & ReviewNB blog
