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.
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.
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.
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.
Currently, apart from my day job, I contribute towards FOSS projects and communities like -
and any other project that interests me on the fly.
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! :)
