Hi, I'm Shadaj

I like to code

Shadaj loves to program. He is fluent in many programming languages, with Scala being his favorite for its combination of functional and object-oriented concepts. Shadaj hosts his projects on GitHub, and has a channel on YouTube. He has presented at OSCON 2014, Scala Days (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017), Scala By the Bay, and the Bay Area Scala Enthusiast group showing his Scala projects. Besides programming, he enjoys math and music, and participates in science research competitions.

Shadaj is currently the Co-President of Lynbrook Robotics. He has interned at Meteor Development Group, Khan Academy, Coursera, and Paya Labs working with technologies such as GraphQL, React.js, Play! Framework, and Scala.js to develop open-source libraries and educational platforms. In addition, he is also an active member of his school community and has been Student Body President. Shadaj loves spreading his love of technology and started TechTalks — a program that brings guest speakers to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with students at his school. He also volunteers to teach programming to kids through non-profit organizations. When not doing his school work or programming he plays the sitar, an Indian classical instrument and volunteers at a local non-profit music organization.
