🙋‍♂️ About

Hello 👋, I am Dhwaneet, and I live in Ahmedabad with my family. My native place is Bhavnagar.

Programming and Career

I started programming with C in 2006. The most complex program I wrote that year was a Tower of Hanoi algorithm and a DOS-based graphics screen showing the disks moving step-by-step that looked like this. I qualified for INOI in 2006 by brute-forcing a O(n3) solution in the qualifying round. However, I did not know what "algorithms" were at that age, so I terribly failed the training camp for the International Olympiad. I graduated in Computer Science in 2011.

I started my career building and maintaining web applications and backend systems for Sokrati. I was also part of the on-call rotation team, and I got exposure to many internal tools for deployment, monitoring and end-to-end testing.

At Birst (later acquired by Infor), I was building backend systems and APIs for product features and was actively involved in evolving and scaling production infrastructure.

I was a backend engineer and eventually the Head of Engineering at Novo. I led the engineering team in building features and core infrastructure from Seed to Series A.

Currently, I am a Staff Engineer at Postman, building an API development platform loved by developers worldwide.

Hobbies

These days, I spend most of my time outside of work playing with my daughter. In the remaining time, I try to follow up on my hobbies.

I read non-fiction books. I read a lot of different topics. I believe that knowledge helps me become a better human.

I watch sci-fi TV shows and movies. I like the comic universe and usually end up watching anything that is Marvel or DC Comics based.

I listen to podcasts. Some of my favourite ones are Huberman Labs and Naval.

I have come to enjoy running and try to do that at least two times a week. I also like learning about health and food.
