About

Me

The only decent picture I have of me.

Hey! I'm a fullstack web developer, and an Open-Source enthusiast. My interest includes exploring various technologies such as Docker(DevOps), Low-level programming, Compilers, etc. Currently, I'm an undergrad student studying at JIIT, Noida. I did Google Summer of Code(GSoC) 2021 at Postman, and I'm currently a maintainer at AsyncAPI where I maintain the diff library.

Welcome to my smol corner on the internet where I write blogs, and showoff my projects :)

This site has no creepy ads, no paywalls, and no analytics. I like to write blogs to share with other people, and hopefully connect with them.

What am I doing these days

Random

Just some random stuff.

Desktop

This is what my desktop currently looks like. I'm using Pop-OS as my daily driver(I distro hop a lot), and VSCode. I left Vim. Too much to configure :(

Keyboard

This is my current keyboard. Keychron K2-V2, with red switches. I love it! I have been eyeing NuPhy Air 60/75 as well, but they don't currently ship in India :(

My current keyboard

Look at this big boi!

Speaking

I spoke at AsyncAPI conference 2021 about my Google Summer of Code project AsyncAPI diff. Checkout the talk here.

Tools

I use VSCode, with vim extension as my IDE. Kitty as my terminal. I use either `Fira Code` or `Julia Mono` as my font. I love the Vitesse Dark theme by Anthony Fu. I use Notion as my primary note taking/todo list app.

What's in the name?

As you might already know, I go by aayushmau5 on the internet. This name is inspired by deadmau5, an electronic music producer(I hope he doesn't sue me for this XD). I love his music. This guy introduced me to real electronic music. Filled with melody, and emotion. Been a fan since 2016.
