Currently founding Research3, a Research DAO and Co-founder & CTO of twimbit. Previously, I was an ML researcher at TU Vienna Informatics, UX / AI lead at upsell.ai and founder lead at Mobile-web.dev . I am an active member of web and web3 community while I give tech talks, share advice on product building and mentor kids in tech and entrepreneurship. I have been featured as top CTO of India and recognised among world most influential tech business leaders.
Area of Expertise
The market research industry is highly fragmented and isolated. Often it is run by sponsored mega corporations which isolate the research.
This talk is about building a research platform which is democratized and decentralized where everyone can bring expertise no matter what their team size and start producing authentic research.
NFR ( Non Fungible Research) -
Using NFT as means of ownership to authors of research content and get their fair share when the research is distributed, quoted, and consumed over the ecosystem. We could also use NFT as a means of authentication for consumers to be 100% sure about authenticity and originality of content, acting as a means of liaising.
Research DAO -
Using DAO as a means to distribute work ( Work DAO ), Governance, Verification and authenticity enabling true democratization.
Platform could enables experts to create content and do demand driven distribution for highly personalized consumption using an integrated Research DAO. This could empower creator economy to Independent researchers as well.
This talk is about a real life journey in which I started with a basic problem of on demand TLS over any domain and ended up containing end to end self sustianable CDN equivalent to cloudflare.
This journey would help the attendee learn techniques from multiple desciplines -
1. Problem Solving
3. Network and Servers
5. System architectures
When we start we tend go with the best and most scalable solution for our project. Its easier in the start as only one person ( CTO) has to learn these things, and you don't bother much learning new technologies.
But as you grow in team and new people add up the tech enthusiasm changes to management and to handle to handle all this you probably end up creating a devops team. Wondering what could be done to resolve this headache. You job was too focus on business and change fast, but you made your startup a giant behemoth that now needs specialized skill to handle.
The talk is a summed up capsule from the best industry practices, books, talks from famous CTO and CEO of startups who have learnt this lesson the hard way.
Outline of the talk
1. How was it expected go
2. How it actually goes
3. what went wrong
4. How should it actually go
5. Stage wise devops evolution
6. Adapting teams
This talk is about decreasing the differnce between what is a PWA and a native app. We will see some design practices and patterns that can be helpful to remove this void ultimate providing an awesome user experience. This will include SPA, PWA, TWA , service workers, designing, native web api usages and more.
Topic Description: Most often, Accessiblity and optamization comes as the last step of our site development. This leads to chaos and we end up having a site that’s too hard to optimize. What if there was a way to optimize it with best practices right from the beginning. Here is where AMP comes in. In this talk you will learn about this amazing web framework that promises amazing performance and Accessibility
In this session, attendees will learn about AMP and its capabilities.
Why this talk?
So everyone has at least once faced this situation. It's almost the deadline day ( already extended too many times 😂). You sit down with your team to check off the deliverables and how things are working out. But guess what -
" Things look far from deployable ! "
The codes look crappy, there is no organization of libraries, you would probably need to spend class time with the guy who coded it and other many mindboggling issues that would lead you to go refresh your basics. But the question is -
What lead to this situation?
Tools are used by fools?
Premature optimization or no optimization at all
and many more . . .
So this is project management 101, right?
Actually, No. This is not a skill learning class that anyone can do online. This is the real world storytelling of how Python projects should be done. Coming straight from many production applications currently being used by over a million people that I worked on. ( No Joke ).
What to expect?
We will be touching essentials of everything (tools, soft skills, hardware, software, code ... ) you need to know to efficiently run your next project and increase your team/ self productivity by at least 30%.
🔭 Planning a project
Talking in pictures ( How to wireframe, flowchart and lay down the working mechanism)
Teaming up ( Task distributions, Tracking)
Setting deliverables and milestones
🖥 Setting up the best environment
Gitting it up
Productive working space
Apps, tools, Ide's
Extensively use Notebooks
🚀 Optimizing your project
Requirements are required
Making code faster with multiprocessing
Checking redundant code
📦 The final delivery
How to do that?
Why hear from me?
I am not forced to give this talk, I was obliged. As mentioned I have worked on many production-grade projects with highly professional people. The last project I was leading was a nightmare and made me cry. It was already delayed by a month so I had to step in to finish 2 months' work, within a weekend. This made me realize many common practices that we could follow to make sure projects run smoothly. This inspired me to first learn the best of the best things and bring it to you.
Trust me you won't be bored 😉.

Every one says data is the new oil. But do we actually know how to efficiently use it to make our customer lives better, or it's just another silo of information.
In this talk, we will see a beautiful approach to planning data-based projects inspired by professionals from Google, Twitter, Microsoft, and more.
This talk will cover the following things -
1. Planning a data project sprint
2. Establishing purpose and vision.
3. What data matters and what's trash?
4. Mining the sentiments of users.
5. Diminishing the silos.
After attending this talk, you would be able to think more clearly through the data project and really get amazing results.
Most often, SEO and optamization comes as the last step of our site development. This leads to chaos and we end up having a site thats too hard to optamize. What if there was a way to optimize it with best practices right from the beginning. Here is where AMP comes in. In this talk you will learn about this amazing web framework that promises amazing performance and optamized SEO
AMP is a web framework that promises all best practices within. Learn about its capabilites just beyond web and many other platforms including mobile, emails, stories
The idea is to mix a common developer issue that is SEO challenge of react and how did Next solved many of them. But with a twist of presenting it as a tale for everyone to enjoy and remember forever. Following is a high level agenda of the talk -
1. Sweet sweet development with react library
2. Facing SEO Deamon and hunting for various solutions
3. Enters the Saviour the Next.js framework
4. How does it do what he do ?
5. The great migration from React to Next
6. How Next would face challenges of time
7. A happy ending
So as you might already imagine that this interesting format would keep the audience engaged and help the remember key things in a tale fashion. Audience would be able to have the following takeaways -
1. When to use Next.js
2. Key differences between Next and React
3. How has Next evolved and where would it be heading
4. How to use Next in your projects whether from scratch or migrating from React
5. What other solutions are available for better SEO
When it comes to security nothing is more important than that, even knowing that it could cause serious damage to user experience. Hence a new approach needs to be developed that brings user experience to a security advantage.
Through this talk, we will cover the following things -
1. Security/ Authentication landscape
2. Problem at a glance
3. UX intro
4. How better UX makes the application more secure
5. Solution to the problem
6. Technical ways
After attending this talk audience will be taking back some great learnings and apply them in their own projects and increase significant ROI.
Afterall a usable app is a safe app.
Most often in projects security and user experience are seen as 2 different things. See how can we break this notion and bring them together.
The research industry is highly fragmented and isolated. Often it is run by sponsored mega corporations which isolate the research.
This talk is about how can we change this landscape by deriving decentralized attributes of blockchain and web 3 by building a indexing research on chain using NFR (Non Fungible Research) which makes it traceable and verifiable and also Research DAOs for distribution of work and authority.
