    AWSAR is a platform that connects government organizations and potential job seekers under one single domain, accompanied with a number of features to ease the process, dedicated to fulfilling every kind of needs of recruiters and job seekers.

    My technical interview was scheduled with John D. Britton, the Founder, and CEO at raise. dev. I was in awe as I looked through his LinkedIn profile, and this got me a lot nervous. The technical interview also spans usually for 10 mins and aims to get an understanding of the technical proficiency and the learning potential of the interviewee. I showcased my Smart India Hackathon project - Awsar, a platform that connects government organizations and potential job seekers under one single domain. I contributed as a backend developer and designed and developed the REST APIs that powered the platform. John asked me a few questions on security and scaling, that I answered as per my understanding. He explained to me the ideal solutions to each of these questions as well and I felt like it was a great interview, even if I don’t get selected, as, after all, I got to learn something new.

  • MLH-Quizzet

    This is a smart Quiz Generator that generates a dynamic quiz from any uploaded text/PDF document using NLP. This can be used for self-analysis, question paper generation, and evaluation, thus reducing human effort.

    The fellowship period was coupled with two hackathons - Orientation Hackathon ( to boost team bonding) and a Halfway Hackathon ( to have some time out of contributing). It was really exciting to participate in these hackathons and build something useful for the community. Me and my team - Kshitij and Vignesh, won the orientation hackathon for our project- MLH Quizzet, a smart quiz generator.

  • react-native-tutorial

    I contributed to React Native Tutorial App in this batch with three other fellows - Liang, Cecilia, and Temitope. We had maintainer meetings each week on Thursday where we met Rick and Keion from Facebook, along with Princiya and Chris from raise.dev for updates and future discussions on the project.

  • StandNote

    We often keep missing the crux of the discussions in online meetings, and here comes our solution - StandNote. It is your easy-to-use online meeting assistant that backs you up with automated meeting minutes in every conversation, helps save time such that you just focus on the conversation and never miss what’s important.

    Being a former fellow, I skipped the line for the initial interview and just had to give the technical interview. My technical interview was scheduled with Karan Seth, one of the junior pod leaders. This time, I showcased to him StandNote, an online meeting assistant that lets you generate an automatic meeting summary after each meeting. I contributed to the project as a backend developer and was responsible for designing and developing the REST APIs that powered the platform. He was quite impressed with the idea and asked me a few questions regarding the security of the APIs that I answered well. Hence, the interview went well, and I was back in the fellowship for another batch.

  • FellowStories

    A platform for MLH Fellows to share their stories and experiences

    This time also, me and my team - Lisa, Pawan, and Israel, won the Orientation Hackathon for the Best Open Source Project category. Our project was called FellowStories - a platform for the MLH Fellows to share their stories and experiences.

  • uxp-xd-plugin-samples

    As I returned, half the time was already gone and I had a lot to catch up on. The maintainers on the Adobe Team - Ash, Kerri, and Erin and our technical mentor - Princiya were a great support to me during this time. I began with some small issues, made a few PRs, and then picked up a big one - building the Vue Starter Plugin for Adobe XD and Photoshop.

  • uxp-photoshop-plugin-samples

    UXP Plugin samples for Photoshop 22 and higher.
