About

Hi, I’m Abijeet. Welcome to my blog. The primary reason for me blogging is to keep track of technical things I’m involved. Though this is primarily a technical blog dealing with programming and to some extent designing, I will be occasionally sharing thoughts and incidents from my life.

I am currently working at Wikimedia as a Software Engineer. My job is to work on and improve the Translate extension and Translatewiki.net. In the past, I was working at Osmosys Software Solutions.

I enjoy helping out and contributing to open source projects in my free time. It exposes me to a variety of development techniques. It has also helped me to be more compassionate and improve the way I ask my questions. I contribute to projects that I generally use at office or personally such as BookStack, Nextcloud and Joplin.

When I’m not working, programming or playing DOTA 2, I like reading fantasy and sci-fi on my Kindle and traveling . I prefer traveling on a two-wheeler. I have a Royal Enfield Himalayan motorbike that I like to take on long rides and a BTWin Rockrider 5.0 cycle that I sometimes use to commute to work. One of my proudest achievements is covering 136 kilometers on my cycle, on a single day.


If you have a question about one of the posts I made, send me a mail. If you have a random programming question, consider posting it on StackOverflow.

The views expressed on this blog are mine, and do not necessarily reflect the views of my company.
