About Me

Professional

I'm a graduate from National Institute of Technology, Raipur (NIT Raipur). I completed Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science & Engineering in 2011.

 

During my college life I have worked on many freelance projects for clients based in India and United Kingdom. I have served as a developer as well as Single Point of Contact for the clients for all of these projects.

 

I have also served as the President of Student Technical Committee of my college and have played vital roles in organizing college's Technical and Science Festivals.

 

I joined Sapient (Sapient Consulting Pvt. Ltd.) in July 2011 and have undergone TRM as well as Technical training at Gurgaon SEZ Office. I have worked with AESO (Alberta Electric System Operator) Account. The project involves real-time and complex logic for Energy Trading and regulation in the state of Alberta, Canada. My assignments during this shadow period involved a dozen of technologies primarily based on Java, but also involving XML Validation and Parsing, Spring, Hibernate, Swing, Dozer AIPs.

 

I founded OptimusGuru in April 2012 as "India's first Talent Creation, Recognition and Acquisition Firm".

 

I joined OptimusInnovations Internet Labs in August 2012 and is currently working as a Team Lead here.

 

I have also worked with IndiaMART InterMESH Ltd. as Team Lead from March 2013 to April 2013. I successfully developed and delivered a new and improved version of BizTradeShows.com, world’s largest platform for Trade Shows and Conferences.

Parents

As is normal for most kids in India, my parents have had a substantial influence in my life. They've assisted me in academics, given me my values, and molded my personality. I proudly state that I am what I am because of them. To me, they've been the best parents in the world.

Coding and Scripting

Coding and Scripting is my hobby. I do it every now and then. In fact I spend most of the time on my Projects. I learned my first Programming language (BASIC) when I was in 3rd class. Since then, my love and interest for Programming has grown and has become my passion and then my career.

Website Development and Designing

It is something I know I'm good at. I love to make websites. Not just static HTML ones, what I'm good at is PHP and Javascript. A good knowledge of DataBase Management Systems like MySql adds to my experience.

What I do even better is developing websites using the award winning Joomla! Content Management System. I also have expertise in developing custom Joomla! extensions and templates.

Robotics

Yet another hobby. I'd passion for Electronics right from my 6th class. I used to make and experiment on many electronics projects from EFY Magazine. I made my first robot when I was in my 11th class. It was a simple light seeking robot. I learned professional Manual Robotics when I was in first semester of my college life. I also learned Autonomous Robotics after the second semester. I'd participated in many of the Robotics Competitions and have won many awards.

Personality Test Results

A Global Advanced Personality Test at SimilarMinds.com gave me these results. I've been honest with all the points.

  • Stability results were very high which suggests that I'm extremely relaxed, calm, secure, and optimistic.
  • Orderliness results were low which suggests that I'm overly flexible, improvised, and fun seeking at the expense too often of reliability, work ethic, and long term accomplishment.
  • Extraversion results were medium which suggests that I'm moderately talkative, outgoing, sociable and interacting.

In short, I'm: messy, tough, disorganized, fearless, not rule conscious, likes the unknown, rarely worries, rash, attracted to the counter culture, rarely irritated, positive, resilient, abstract, not a perfectionist, risk taker, strange, weird, self reliant, leisurely, dangerous, anti-authority, trusting, optimistic, positive, thrill seeker, likes bizarre things and sarcastic.
