Hi!

I'm Asad Dhamani, a Full Stack Developer living in Bangalore, India.
I love building technological solutions to problems.
My journey into the world of technology started at the age of 12, when, after being fascinated by computers, I took upon a challenge to create an operating system of my own, and I haven't looked back since!
