Speaker bio

I am a final year MBBS student at Mysore Medical College, a volunteer for Mozilla, Telegram Messenger, Indian Pirates, and de-facto any FOSS project I can contribute to. I believe in the power of Internet and am an Internet Rights (armchair) activist. I think everyone should be able to start publishing on the web on their own. Building taught me the important fundamentals of the web stack and I am sure anyone who builds a website will learn the same over time.
