Harshal96/README.md

Hi, I'm Harshal

I design APIs and Systems for 6sense, previously for Visa, I sometimes work on UI & perform UXR creating continuous interactions between the digital and physical reality.

Read more about me, my previous work/projects, my blog on my portfolio: https://harshal.one

  • 2014: started web development only using HTML/CSS/JS
  • 2017: launched an integrated agency and deployed over 50 websites by 2017 learning more technologies and developing a keen sense for UI
  • 2018: got bachelors from Mumbai University and started masters at Carnegie Mellon University
  • 2019: wrote low-overhead backend code in Vert.x (and sometimes in Scala, FastAPI, Go) and used kubernetes as a choice of deployment
  • 2020: designed APIs using OpenAPI/Swagger
  • 2021: built frameworks and archetypes for Visa
  • 2022: joined 6sense

In an instance:

let harshalparekh = {
  name: "Harshal Parekh",
  education: "Masters of Information Systems Management - Carnegie Mellon University",
  work: ["Software Engineer at 6sense", "Software Engineer at Visa"],
  passions: ["API Design", "System Design", "User Experience Research", "Backend Engineering", "Catching Pokemon"],
  tools: ["OpenAPI/Swagger", "HTML5 + CSS3 + JS", "React", "Vert.x / FastAPI / Express", "AWS/GCP/Azure", "Docker + Kubernetes"],
  hate: ["c++", "vim", "Azure DevOps", "PHP", "procedural code", "milk in coffee"],
  love: ["generators in Python", "streams with double::colon operator in Java", "typescript", "answering on stackoverflow", "coffee"]
}

I focus my design and development around stories. Stories of what it has been, what it is, and what it can be. Stories that have a faint scent of recognition – an inviting solace – however are bound with a wild appeal, a reinvention of convention, and a hypothesis of probability.

It is with this interest I approach research, procedure, and plan as mediums for examining, inciting, and encouraging the poetics of interactions. My work is grounded in the interplay of humans, nature, and innovation; a lifelong exploration of what it means to be human, and how we can better connect with each other.
