About Me

This site is a partial collection of projects I’ve worked on, stories I’ve written down and software I’ve published.

A generalist developer, with a focus on the infrastructure side of things. I love working on building systems and software which help the developers become more efficient by abstracting out infrastructure and making it simpler for them, so that it gets out of their way. In that process, I pick up the language(s)/tool(s), which make the most sense for the task at hand, but I do have a soft spot for python, golang and ruby these days.

When I’m not working on a side project, I can be found playing football (soccer if you may) or cycling and watching EPL (Go Chelsea!). I am very fond of backpacking, within and outside India. I also love attending theatre performances and have been trying to improve my skills at Argentine tango. You might find me with a book/kindle if we stumble upon each other.

A list of public talks given by me, can be found here.

Presently

Enabling scale as part of the Engineering Platform team @ Gojek, providing infrastructure as a PaaS, to the developers of the 20+ product groups inside the org. I occasionally write about what we are working on over at the engineering blog.

I am always a tweet away if you have something interesting in mind.

If you are an IRC person, I will be there with the handle tasdikrahman hanging around OFTC as well as on freenode.

I write about a lot of things on this blog, but it doesn’t and has never represented the opinion of any of my employers. This is a personal blog I write in my off-hours
