I hold around 11 years of experience in application development & consulting. I have worked in various roles ranging from Individual Contributor, DevOps, Solution Architect, Consultant, and Dev Lead depending on the nature of the project. My specialization lies in diversified Microsoft technologies and products. I have a good understanding and experience of working on Agile development methods such as Scrum and Kanban.

I have experience of carrying out development in .NET, .NET Core, Angular, Typescript, Web API, MVC, Cosmos DB, Azure Functions, SignalR, Skype for Business, Microsoft Bot Framework, WPF, Windows 8, Windows Phone. I think I have a good understanding of Visual Studio, Bitbucket, Azure DevOps, Git, JIRA, Team City and Octopus.

I strongly believe in:

  • Have a right test coverage, integration tests and UI automation as per Test Pyramid. Writing tests is an art and should be given same love as actual code in the development process, if not more.
  • Small Pull Requests for review. If it takes more than 5 mins for a reviewer to view all the files, then PR may need to be divided further.
  • The work of developer does not stop when his PR is merged. It is everyone’s responsibility to push the code into production in a low risk manner, using the techniques such as Feature Flags and Blue Green deployments.
  • Have a consistent coding standard throughout the project. A project is owned by the team NOT by an individual.

On the personal front, I’m from New Delhi, India. I’m currently settled in Sunshine Coast, Australia with my lovely wife and little son. It’s a peaceful, quiet place about 100 KMs from Brisbane.

Outside of work, I love to spend my time with friends and family.
