I ♥ mobile, startups and life.
A developer turned entrepreneur currently building Sieve, a platform which brings together the finest freelancers in the world as a team. I am a part time consultant at SV.CO (previously Startup Village) working with startups in Android domain. I'm best known as the Community manager of Google Developers Group Cochin, a community initiative by Google and founding member of Kerala Startups. I mentor various students and teachers on technology adoption and serve as a technology evangelist.
A brief history of time,
2010 — I lost about 80% of hearing.
2011 — Rejected for jobs because I can’t get on client calls.
2012 — Got a job paying $120 a month to learn and do a development job.
2013–2015 — more learning, job, startup.
2016 — Job offer for $120,000 which was rejected and went on to build my own company.
I got a full scholarship at Draper University, met some of the best minds in the world and that’s how I went on to build my company in Silicon Valley.
In between I reached over 1.7 million people on StackOverflow, wrote a Facebook app while learning which was used by thousands of users every month, developed and shipped over a dozen mobile apps, Invited by Google to attend their largest developer conference Google IO as their guest, built a developer community in my city from scratch to over 1000 people working with Google, wrote a resource ebook read by thousands of people every month globally, and most recently met the honourable President of India as invited for the Festival of Innovation 2017.
