Hi !

This is Akshat. I am technologist based out of India. I am also the Author of few technical books mentioned below. I have extensive experience of Mobile, DevOps & Web development and have delivered many enterprises and consumer applications over the years.

Alongside writing code & building software, I frequently speak at conferences and meetups on various technologies. I have given talks at ReactNative EU, Cross Platform Mobile Summit, React JS Case Study Festival, TheDevTheory India, [email protected] Amsterdam, RubyConfIndia Pune, #inspect Conference brussels and was KeyNote speaker at technology leadership events in Bangkok & Kualalumpur.

Besides technology I like spending time with my family, reading amazing books and obsessive about healthy eating (you can find my Interview Here).
