Speaker Info:

I am a Senior Software Engineer/Data scientist at NextOrbit, Technical Architect at Code Matrix. I am a startup guy who loves the idea of building teams and working with them from the ground up. I have been part of and lead teams that have built medium and large scale software. I am glued to the computer a lot, although that must be obvious. But when I am not peeled to a laptop I play badminton, chess, teach students software and find creative reasons to skip a session in the gym on a daily basis.

Have not had a lot of bandwidth for open source contribution. Something I hope to change soon.
