Welcome to my site!

I’m an undergrad at IITM working towards being a software developer; learning in depth and building things in the process.

This is my little corner on the internet.

  • I write about my journey and learnings as a developer in my blog. It’s a home to my ramblings, experiments, experiences and sometimes, wisdom.

  • I like photography. I’m not very good at it but that doesn’t stop me from sharing my clicks in my gallery.

I go by kretaceous or abhijit-hota on the internet.

You can find my Resume here.
