Who am I and why should you care ?

Hi. My name is Punit Vara. I'm former Google Summer Of Code student and mentor. I like writing, tinkering with electronics, programming and fasicinated by human centered design, human computer interaction. I've been working at Intel since 2016.


Since younger days, I have been curious about computers. Later I joined electronics degree and got interested about building robots, designing PCBs. It was absolute fun to program electronic circuits and see blinkind LED or robots moving automatically. Hunger to learn more about electronics led me to pursue masters degree in embedded systems and VLSI, where my journey to open source started after contributing to Linux Kernel.
