Hi, I’m Koushtav Chakrabarty, a software engineer by profession. Technology, computers and ideas stimulate me. I work at this amazing tech consultancy startup called DataGrokr.

I’m familiar with a varierty of programming languages, frameworks and libraries including C++, Python, JavaScript, React.js, Node.js. I believe that an ideal software engineer is someone who knows how to design good software by following design patterns & SDLC methodologies by staying language/library agnostic, choosing whatever tools are right for the job. And since I am at the very beginning of my career, I am exploring different domains, be it web applications, UI/UX, backend services/microservices, game development, you name it.

Free time is spent pursuing varied interests. I like to read books (mostly fiction, Dan Brown’s Inferno being my favourite), binge watch movies (The Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, Zodiac, Inception, and The Dark Knoght trilogy being my favourites), TV shows (Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Malcolm in the Middle being some of my favourites) or anime (Death Note, Tokyo Ghoul, Beelzebub being some of my favourites) and sleep in my spare time. Also, I consider myself as the jack of many games, master of none.
