A talk on our hackathon experience !

talk Delivered a talk on our hackathon experience and how one can utilize opportunities during their bachelor’s degree at my Alma mater Bangalore Institute of Technology. Shared my experience with current students about how a hardware based prototype will help one to understand the inner workings of a product. All this was possible because of my college mates and hackathon partners Hansum Krishna, Shashank Punia and Asif Sajjad for 30+ hackathons and much more.. way to go team.!

A Free workshop on Open source electronics - 21 July 2019

workshop I conducted a workshop on open source electronics for 11th standard students at my Alma mater Viveka Pre University College, Kota, Udupi. The response was very good, students started giving life to their innovative ideas with the help of arduino microcontroller and basic electronics. I’m very happy that some even won awards at project exhibition competitions organised by nearby engineering colleges.

Inaugurating & Conducting workshops at ELICIT Science Fest - 2016

I was fortunate to get in touch with entrepreneur Ram Prakash H who was listed among top 20 India Innovators under 35 by MIT TR35 for the innovation Quillpad technology which was later deployed by Rediff.com, Indiatimes, AADHAAR, LG, Yahoo Inc etc.

I got an opportunity to work with him in organising various events at his GR Lavender Apartment’s Science Fest - ELICIT 2016, including a workshop using Balsa Wood Glider, DIY Den for teaching kids how to use an arduino, A TicTacToe Playing robot using image processing e.t.c. Also I got an opportunity to inaugurate the ELICIT 2016 using my home made drone. elicit

Arduino Day 2015

This where all started, I always wanted to build a plane with custom transmitter and receiver and I was able to do it with the help of arduino. Luckily I got a chance to showcase my project at Arduino Day 2015. This event really helped me a lot in terms of career opportunities, I got many contacts from this event which helped me in involving open-source community. Arduplane
