A techie with a knack for football and music

You’re here, so I guess it would be rude not to introduce myself. ;-)

My name is Dhanesh B. Sabane and I am passionate about everything computers and the Free and Open Source (FOSS) philosophy.

So, what kind of person am I?

Just like everyone else, I am a hard worker and I try not to take myself too seriously. I’m also a bit shy and a terrible basketball player. If you were to ask me to aim for the basket, I’d probably hit the guy standing ten feet away, talking on the phone.

But it’s not all bad

What I lack in basketball skills, I more than make up for in computer skills. A career Software Engineer, I’m currently spending my time as a Technical Analyst at Technology Blueprint Ltd.

You’ll usually find me spending my time with my devices on a weekend - breaking, fixing and tweaking stuff. And if not that, you’ll find me at some FOSS conference talking about stuff I broke, fixed and tweaked last weekend.

Such a nerd! - I hear you say under your breath.

So, how did I get here?

My parents gifted me my first computer when I was a 13 year old kid. I had no idea about any of the Computer Science fundamentals up until I joined college with Computer Science as a subject. That’s when I realised that logic and coding came naturally to me.

Later I pursued Computer Engineering and that is where I started realizing my true potential (it took me a while). I started attending events, workshops and hackathons. I wasn’t the best one around but I never gave up. I started using and contributing to Open Source software and managed a Mozilla Club in my last year of graduation.

And that’s how the journey began

Currently, apart from my day job, I contribute towards FOSS projects and communities like -

and any other project that interests me on the fly.

Hang with me for a bit!

You can help me get over my shyness. Here are a few ways to make that happen:

Thanks! I really appreciate you stopping by and hanging with me!

Have a good day! :)
