About Me.

Hi! My name is Sohan Basak and I am an engineer. Technology has always been a passion of mine from a young age – I started coding when I was just 14 years old, and my love for technology has only grown stronger since then.

I have experience working with various programming languages such as Python, Javascript, C++, Java, Rust and Golang. Additionally, I have also worked with distributed systems and databases including MongoDB and MySQL.

Creating products is something that really excites me – whether it’s coming up with new ideas or bringing existing ones to life. And of course, learning about science & tech (and everything else in the cosmos!) is something that will never stop fascinating me.

And in case you're wondering... yes - playing the guitar AND reading books are two of my favorite pastimes 😁

If you’re ever interested in chatting more about product building or anything else, please don’t hesitate to reach out – I’m always open to invitations and consultations!
