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), and the Bay Area Scala Enthusiast group showing his Scala projects. Besides programming, he likes Math and Science. Shadaj is currently the Software Lead of Lynbrook Robotics. He has interned at Coursera and Paya Labs working with technologies such as Play! Framework and Scala.js to develop 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.
