In 2021, Jimmy Wales announced me as Tech Innovator, Wikimedian of the year at Wikimania.
I am an open-source software enthusiastic and MediaWiki developer, lives in Rampur, Uttar Pradesh, India. I joined the Wikimedia community from English Wikipedia in 2015. Then, I moved to my native Hindi Wikipedia. I am a fan of Space technologies. I created many space articles on Hindi Wikipedia. But later, I got interest in the Wikimedia tech community. Since 2017, I am working actively as a technical contributor for Indic languages in the Wikimedia tech community. Apart from technical contribution, I take MediaWiki technical training and, take part in strategy to improve Wikimedia movement.
Outside Wikimedia, I am pursuing Bachelor in Computer Science and Engineering at Bharat Institute of Technology, Meerut. I am also a Google Developer Student Club Lead for my campus. I mainly have two hobbies. Firstly programming, in which I spend most of the time on web development. Secondly, I read tech articles and security loopholes related to web development. I love to watch thrillers, spies, and red bull's “Peoples are Awesome” video series.
Do you have suggestions for any good thriller movies from your region? Feel free to suggest me on my talk page.
