Hi There, I’m Ishan.

I was fascinated by coding from a young age. I taught myself how to code from the ground up, and I have never stopped learning and exploring new possibilities.

Over the past ten years, I have worked on various projects that challenged me to grow as a coder and a problem-solver. I have learned how to build software that is reliable, scalable and performant, and that serves the needs of millions of users.

Thank you for visiting my blog, where I share my journey, thoughts, and experiences with you. I hope you find something useful and inspiring here.

Currently, I am working on DDoS mitigation systems at Asians Group LLC. I have previously worked on systems and websites using OpenCV, Python, Django, PHP, Laravel, Vue, Eleventy, and many others.

I’m also finally working towards a Bachelor’s Degree in Data Science and Applications from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.

About This Website

This website is the latest iteration of many.


How do you deal with bugs that just won’t budge? Do you bribe them?

Yep, you caught me. I bribe them. I’m dirty.

Do you have a secret coding dance that boosts productivity?

It’s more of a secret keyboard rhythm that syncs perfectly with the code’s heartbeat. Sadly, no dance moves… yet.

How do you manage to stay sane during those long debugging sessions?

Insanity is relative! But seriously, music, memes, and the occasional staring contest with the screen keep me going.

How can I subscribe to updates from your site?

You can subscribe to updates via RSS or you could subscribe to the newsletter instead.

What did you use to make this website?

This website is made with Hugo, using the excellent Stack theme with my own customizations.

What other blogs do you like?

Too many to list! Maybe one day I will try to collate them.

What is the best programming language?

Haskell, obviously.

Is it true you’ve had staring contests with your code? Who won?

It’s a tie between me and the code; we both blinked and then had to debug why.

Do you believe in horoscopes?

Absolutely! My horoscope for today: “You will encounter a syntax error, but fear not, for the solution is just a semicolon away!”

Why do you hate SPAs?

I don’t necessarily hate SPAs - I just believe there is a right and a wrong time to SPA.

Why do you hate Javascript?

Ecosystem catch-up overload. I don’t hate Javascript - but it’s hard to keep up with all the happenings.
