I tried GitHub Copilot (and you should, too!)

Today, I kicked off my day with an invitation to start testing GitHub Copilot, an AI pair programmer! Copilot, like GPT-3, is a game-changer in software development. It's fascinating to see AI being used in coding. After a day of use, I believe AI will undoubtedly lead us to low-code and no-code software development. This AI assistant was trained on a data set with a considerably higher concentration of publicly available source code, and of course it's much more than auto-completion. It learns from you and adapts to your coding style.

Smart India Hackathon

Smart India Hackathon is a nationwide initiative to provide students with a platform to solve some of the pressing problems we face in our daily lives, and thus inculcate a culture of product innovation and a mindset of problem-solving. I mentored "Team Hashtag" for Smart India Hackathon 2020 which was conducted on 1st, 2nd and 3rd August. With the team's dedication and efforts, we won the SIH 2020. It was a great opportunity for me to collaborate remotely for the virtual hackathon.

Webinar on Competitive Programming

Coding has been a hot topic for a prolonged time. Everyone wants to be a programmer/developer. But most of us are stuck where, to begin with. A lot of us have a passion for it, just need a path to channel it. And I learned it the hard way, a little late. I'm thankful to Skillenza Hustler Community for providing me a platform to share my coding journey. In collaboration with them, I conducted a YouTube live session which is attended by 200+ students.

Water Monitoring System

An IoT based project that helps to monitor the water level in a tank and alerts users in case of an overflow or water depletion. This project aims to save natural resources effectively. The vision for this project is to provide a system for society to overcome water related problems in cities. Water is perhaps the second most important substance on the Earth, after air. This system helps the user to keep a track of the water filling up in the tanks placed on the terrace.
