Hi, I'm Ishan.

I'm a design-minded, detail oriented software developer passionate about combining beautiful code with very beautiful design.

I'm a second year student at SRMIST in Chennai studying Computer Science Engineeing. I have a little but comprehensive experience developing and designing software for the web, from simple landing pages to progressive web applications. I strive to create software that not only functions efficiently under the hood, but also provides intuitive, pixel-perfect user experiences.

I love learning new and better ways to create seamless user experiences with clean, efficient, and scalable code. I consider work an ongoing education, and I'm always looking for opportunities to work with those who are willing to share their knowledge as much as I want to learn. At the end of the day, my primary goal is to create something beautiful with people that bring out the best in me.

I want everything in my code to be just perfect. I code until everything is letter-perfect; until everything works as it is supposed to work. I love enhancements. I improve as I learn. I never settle.

When I'm not in front of a computer screen (super rare), I'm probably eating, playing my piano, or convincing my dad to get me a dog.

What I Do

Web Development

Using Angular + (awesome) Javascript, I have a passion for developing aesthetically pleasing websites and apps while maintaining a semantic, modular, and DRY code base.

iOS Application Suite

Aaruush app suite

a. Aaruush | b. Aaruush Companion | c. Aaruush Pusher
Aaruush is the National-level Techno-management fest of SRMIST. It had 10,000+ attendees, 80+ events (going on simultaneously all around the campus) in 4 days. To manage all of this huge clutter, the app suite was planned in a very well-organised way. It managed almost everything, from event information showcases, live updates, real-time maps, generation of Aaruush Pass in the main app to scanning Aaruush Pass for event entries, assigning tokens, pushing updates, and allotting user-level permissions in the Team Companion app. Through Manual JSON-to-model parsing; Every bit of content is dynamic. All of this heavy networking tasks, with beautiful UI/UX planning, and also ensuring to keep the memory footprint of the app below the bar, took me around 3-4 months. But it was all worth-it since the app went 44th on Top Charts in Education category of App Store!

iOS Application

Whisper

A very cool demo app for a technology that I implemented for exchanging data between nearby devices via sound, just like Google Pay. Whisper is an attendance-managing app which exchanges secure tokens via sound. To elaborate: A server is planted on a table which is listening for whispers from devices of attendees/ employees. Whenever a device throws in a Whisper; the data (token) is decoded into a byte array and a hash of the token is generated and sent back to the user device, again, through a Whisper. The hash is matched with a local hash generated by the attendee/ employee device. If the hash matches, the attendance is flagged true on the Firebase Database [or a deployed Node.js web app, for what it’s worth].

Idea:
Workshops that we instruct are jam-packed with students. It is tough to mark attendance of each and every student [for certification purposes]. This idea can help build a Kiosk for marking attendance, making things smooth and simple.
