I am Kashi Vishwanath, Technical Architect at Mindtree working in the Mobility domain for the past 11 years.
I have been working on Android for the past 5 years and offlate started to work on wearables such as smartwatches and Google Glass.
I love bringing technology to day to day life as I believe that technology empowers a human to lead a quality life.
Amongst a few apps developed, I would like to highlight that I have developed a Smartwatch app which helps women to communicate about their situations to their dear ones, just by a voice command.
I firmly believe that imparting knowledge helps a person to gain more. I have a passion for teaching and training people and have received great response in this regard. The uniqueness about my teaching/training is that I connect all the missing dots which enables a better learning.
Last, but not the least I enjoy working on and exploring new technologies and open for challenges.
