I am Nishant Mittal, a passionate software engineer, open source enthusiast and studying computer science at IIT (BHU) Varanasi.
Currently, I'm working on YugabyteDB as a Software Engineering Intern and learning about distributed systems. Apart from this, I've interned with companies like Google, Gojek and Productiv in the past. Know more about my professional experience and achievements on LinkedIn.
I love contributing to and building open source projects. I'm maintaining two open source projects currently; GSoC Organizations and Templates Plugin. I contributed to Layer5 products as a part of Linux Foundation Mentorship program (Previously known as community bridge). I've also completed Google Summer of Code projects with Oppia and Joplin. Apart from these projects, I've made contributions to multiple large open source organizations like Oppia, Zulip, Flyte, Mattermost, etc. See all of my projects & open source contributions on GitHub.
Talking about my hobbies, I love programming (obviously :P), solving complex engineering problems, partying, travelling and watching sitcoms.
