Work hard in silence, let results make the noise!

About me

I am Computer Science undergrad from Amrita School of Engineering, India in which I am a part of an intra-college FOSS initiative called FOSS@Amrita. My aim is to keep contributing to OSS, become a better coder and dedicate my time to help others coming up in the field, just like how I was helped and mentored by many as a newbie.
