About Nishant

I've been working in the IT industry for 25 years. Mostly as a hands on developer, manager, systems architect.
Been part of multiple startups from 2 people onward. Also worked for large companies like Google, Oracle, Goldman Sachs.
Just entering a new part of my life, with my 3 kids in high school. Was very involved with their education and sports for the last 15 years.
I read a lot. I'm a sports fan although don't spend a lot of time on them now. Played different sports growing up and still try to get out for pickup games.
