About 🙋‍♂️

Hi 👋, I'm Mishal Shah, a Software Engineer. I love developing software and like to explore Networks, Databases, Web Security. I strongly believe that technology can make the lives easier and thus keep exploring and learning. I graduated in Computer Science & Engineering from NITK, Surathkal, India.

I'm currently working as a Web Solutions Engineer at Google. Before joining Google, I worked for a little over a year at Cisco as a Software Engineer. I love to explore how the internet and the web works, and you'd mostly find me reading various engineering blogs. I also plan to read some books on my reading list.

Participating in hackathons pump me up and every hackathon had something special to learn. The best ones were: Smart India Hackathon 2018, code.fun.do, InOut 6.0 and the one that I lead organized: National Level Hackathon - HackVerse.

During my time at university, I've contributed to open source by being a Google Summer of Code Student in 2019, serving as a mentor in Google Code-in '19 and mentoring a project as a part of GSoC '20 with the ns-3 Organization and a few other contributions. I have also interned at IIIT Hyderabad under Prof. Venkatesh Chopella in the summer of 2018. I was part of various community groups at college, more about them here

When I'm not coding or exploring tech, I'm mostly sleeping or spending time with my parents. Other than that, I love playing basketball, eating different dishes and visiting different places.

I started this site to share my personal experiences, learnings and technical knowledge. I'm aiming to expand with more quality content as I learn more.
