I am Rushabh, started writing Frappe Framework in 2005. Now part of Frappe Tech (90% of what we do is FOSS https://frappe.io) and incredibly lucky to work with an amazing team. Personally worked on Python & JS. Big fan of object oriented programming and design.

I believe in doing things and making things happen (since there enough people talking about it). I think free code brings freedom to humanity.

Hello Everyone,

This is Shashank. I work for Scrapinghub since Oct 2018 and is amazed by the Remote-Working possibilities I’ve seen. I work as a Python developer building Scrapy spiders at scale.

I started as a volunteer for PyDelhi (Python user group of Delhi) and now I help organize its meetups and support other communities. I was part of core volunteer team of PyCon India from 2016 till 2018.

I finished my Google Summer of Code in 2018 with Debian where I worked on a FOSS software that can help new coders with the basic terminologies about FOSS and more.

Happy to be here. :slight_smile:

Hello :wave:

I am Sagar. Self-taught developer who accidentally bumped into FOSS. Working exclusively on all things ERPNext at Resilient Tech.

In addition to the Frappe Framework, I love the Cinnamon desktop environment, Flask and VS Code OSS (yes, Micr*soft).

I enjoy writing Python and Javascript. Simple is better than complex.

Find me on Github.

Hi, this is Aditya.

I’m a developer, a hobbyist biker, and a Linux enthusiast. When not riding into the sunset, and not being a general nuisance, I like to experiment with new systems and concepts in technology.

My latest obsession centers on developing and promoting an open source, temporal graph data store (https://github.com/RecallGraph/RecallGraph), and building an active community of users and contributors around it.

I maintain and contribute to couple of open source projects.

My last project, Postwoman - an open, free & fast API request builder is used by 330k+ developers from around the world.

I learn new things from reading books, building projects, etc.

Welcome @everyone.

@Aditya_Mukhopadhyay RecallGraph looks interesting. Would be nice to see some benchmarks / performance metrics.

@liyasthomas Postwoman is sweet!

@knadh Thanks! Benchmarks have been on the cards for a while. Part of the tracing and instrumentation support I want to build into the service. However, none of the standard JS tracing libraries could work OOTB since the environment in which RecallGraph runs (V8 engine on ArangoDB) is 100% synchronous.

I’m in the process of rolling out a tracing framework of my own, built specifically for this environment. Should be ready in less than a week. Relevant links below:

  1. https://github.com/RecallGraph/foxx-tracer - An OpenTracing implementation for Foxx
  2. https://github.com/RecallGraph/foxx-tracer-collector - A collector service for foxx-tracer

There are a couple of more project links that point to reporters (console and Datadog), but my current privileges restrict me from posting them here right now.

I am Vivek, I work at Zerodha as a fullstack software dev. I am involved in FOSS activities since early 2010, was a volunteer of FSFTN. Worked on their early website and arranged local meetups on a few occasions. Been writing tiny opensource libs/apps since then, mostly for personal experience.

Favourite OSS are Go, Redis, Git and several Unix tools (grep, curl to name few). Also, enjoy working on Python whenever I get a chance.

For me the go-to source for tech update is HN.

Hi All
This is Srujan. I work for a consultancy behemoth as an Associate Developer. I feel lucky to get to work with open source softwares like HAProxy, Apache Httpd, JBoss etc. I write ugly bash scripts to process data, automate and deal with multiple VMs. I love open source due to the sheer pleasure it gives to be a part of a like-minded and supportive community and I truly believe in free software.

I love python due to the principles that it was built on. I also like git, Jenkins.

I am in an initial stages of my career and excited about the journey.
