I was appointed as a Master Faculty for 1 year at St.Angelo's Computer Education Pvt. Ltd., Trained more than 400+ students in 10+ Programming Languages. Organized Programming Seminars at 5 different branches. Worked at Nevpro Business Solutions Pvt.

Currently working with Praxify Technologies Inc. as a Engineer from last 1 year as a Techno-Functional Guy. Most of the Healthcare Technologies related problems i solve with Python scripts, currently handling SNOMED-CT as well as UMLS and Python makes it easy for me, very few are aware of the Py libraries which can play an important role in Healthcare Technologies and I want everybody to know how Python can transform the Healthcare Technology and makes life Simple.

Love for Python started when I learned Programming, I pursued dual graduation Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com) and Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA) simultaneously, Later on completed Post Graduation Diploma in Computer Application (PGDCA) and this year completed Master of Computer Application (MCA).
