Intro

What I am all about.

A seasoned software engineer and expert teacher in iOS and Android, Amit has consistently been recognized as a top performer in a career filled with many highlights. At various roles he’s led teams, taught classes, proposed solutions that rapidly streamlined processes, and accomplished critical goals within extremely tight timelines. He even built an offshore tech company from the ground up, with successes that included training inexperienced college grads to become developers, as well as reaching the finalist stage in three developer competitions.

Amit still recalls first time he held an iPhone in his palm and realized its power to change mobile computing forever. Maybe that’s why, as varied as his career experiences have been, he’s always comes back to coding: there’s just a satisfaction that comes from typing commands into a computer and creating something out of nothing.
