About Me

I am a final year under graduate pursuing B-Tech in Computer Engineering at Delhi Technological University. Being very new to software industry (started in freshman year), I have really enjoyed it from the start. It teaches you something new everyday! During these 3 years, apart from computer technologies like C, C++, JAVA and various frameworks(Qt, Android etc) I have learned that we should not fear the unknown.If we want to learn something new, nothing can stop us.

I like lay in bed and think about solution to my problems and eventually sleep(Yeah, I am that much lazy). Apart from it, with someone I am highly energetic and always like to venture into the unknown!

Work Experience

Software Engineering Intern - ARISTA (June 2016 - August 2016)

At ARISTA my task I was involved in implementing mirroring to CPU on StrataXGS Trident II switch series. Worked from manually programming the hardware to writing agents to do that, programming of DMA driver for the feature etc. Successfully implemented the functionality for fixed system switches.

Google Summer of Code Participant - KDE (April 2015 - August 2015)

KDE Connect is a project which aims to provide a way so that all your devices on same network can communicate with each other. During the GSOC period I ported whole backend of both mobile and desktop written in Android and Qt respectively, to use SSL/TLS for communication between devices. It used Trust On First Use (TOFU) model. This removed the use of RSA for encrypting the data making the system more fast and robust with full packet encryption instead of payload and saved from Man in the Middle attacks Prior to that I also contributed for some feature enhancements like notification filtering, progress bar while sending and receiving data etc.

lEarnIt Open Source

lEarnIt is a Paytm powered Android application to motivate children to study. It links parent's Paytm wallet and child's wallet within the application. Every time child completes a module successfully, a sum of money is transferred from parent's wallet to child's wallet which can be further used to buy stuff for the child.
I successfully integrated Paytm's P2P money transfer flow using their APIs (which are not publicly available yet, only made available during hackathon) so that after successful completion of a module , money can be transferred from parent's wallet to child's wallet by just pressing a button and entering OTP
