Open Source Evangelist and Software Engineer working at Cadence Design Systems. I work in C/C++ on Linux environment as a part of my day job and use Python for my hobby projects. I am an avid Python and Open source fan and love attending Developer conferences around me . My acquaintance with Open Source started when I first got my Laptop in 2013 and then attended a session of Google Summer of Code at my College. I have been a GSoC 2016 alumnus at publiclab and also a Google Code-in 2016 Mentor at Fossasia and later a GSoC 2017 mentor with publiclab.
Recently I am diving in to the Hacker culture and Free Software Movement, and also starting to understand the difference between the terms – Free Software and Open Source. I am making my efforts to contribute to more upstream Free Software Projects and hope to share my stories in my blog.
