  • Hello folks, I am a 3rd year Computer Science B.Tech student studying at National Institute of Technology, Durgapur, West Bengal.
  • I have fair amount of coding experience with Java, C, C++, Python, Django, HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP!
  • I was introduced to the world of open-source an year ago! And I have enjoyed every bit of it! Am a rabid contributor, and believe in the principle of FOSS, that we should share whatever we know, for the greater benefit of the community and in turn yourself.
  • Most time of the day I am glued to my laptop, but when not, I listen MJ songs, sleep, eat chocolates, and play pokemon.
