Who?

Hi, I'm JK [a.k.a thatcoder] 👋 I live in God's Own Country, India.

Well, I’m a guy who’s into core engineering, performance, and internals of computer systems.

I help young programmers via my open community - nullcast.io and through my blogs at thatcoder.space.

I discovered my interest in coding during my school days when I started with Borland Turbo C++ and Visual Basic, later HTML and CSS.

These days, I mostly write programs in Go and JS for my work and recently started hacking with Rust ❤️

I kickstarted my career with NeoITO in 2017 and learned all about the tech jargon that matters from JS, Go, Cloud and Cloud-Native technologies, and a bit of AI/ ML.

I’ve worked as a Tech Lead and Architect of leading startups like DailyAI, RideYellow, CWiX and many other product-based companies.

During my free time, I try to contribute to open source and have a huge fascination for game designing using Unreal Engine.

Currently, I’m exploring the opportunities of the Metaverse, and on an ideation process of building a shopping experience using digital humans and AI as my big guns.
