I am currently working as an Hybrid Mobile Developer at Tata Consultancy Services Ltd., Pune. I work on developing awesome web/mobile apps using kickass Javascript frameworks like Backbone, Enyo, Sencha Touch and Phonegap. I ♥ Javascript. Just saying.

Previously I worked as a Research Intern at Gade Autonomous Systems Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai. I developed Windows-based applications using Microsoft Kinect. My first project involved a hand-gesture based picture viewer. You can find a demo here: V’Me (A Gesture Based Picture Viewer).

I’ve completed my Bachelors in Electronics and Telecommunication from K.I.T’s College of Engineering, Kolhapur. Prior to this, I completed junior college from Late Sri P. B. Jog Junior College, Pune and schooling from St. Xavier’s High School, Kolhapur.

I am passionate about Reading novels and Watching movies. I also play Table Tennis and Chess in whatever spare time I get (which is very less). However all this takes backseat when the mood for Counter Strike is in the air. Then it all comes down to hardcore gaming!

Here is a casual picture that was captured when some friends and I visited Udupi, Karnataka.

PS: I go by the username karanjthakkar on the internet. So if you want to look for me, use that. You’ll come up with something that links to me.
