Speaker bio

I am a consultant at Thoughtworks. I have recently worked on a project which required our application to be progressive. We achieved this by using service worker. We did a lot of research on this and were able to finally attain our goal. This then lead my interest in sharing my knowledge with a bigger community.

If given a chance this will be my first experience as a speaker on this level.
