I'm Gaurav Gupta

Seasoned Web Developer

I am Gaurav Gupta

I have over 7 years of experience in developing and maintaining large and scalable Web 2.0 applications end-to-end (Conceptualization, Design/UI, Backend and Frontend Coding, Deployment, Server Management, Uptime, Performance, Scalability etc.). People like to call me a "full stack" developer.

I have worked for several top-notch web companies in India including SlideShare-LinkedIn, Naukri.com, Educomp, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research etc.

I started SquareBoat, a startup focused, product development company in 2013.

I love making software products that touch people's lives. When I'm not coding, you can find me on Techmeme, Hacker News and Product Hunt. I love reading books about technology/business and trying out new places to eat.
