Back-end Python Developer in Calgary, AB, Canada

Member since October 28, 2021
Adarsh is a back-end developer with four years of experience specializing in Python. After earning his bachelor's degree in software engineering, he joined an amazing team of DevOps engineers at Synopsys, a leading designer of autonomous chips, and he co-developed autonomous RC cars that were showcased (as the only software) at a Beakerhead AI event. Adarsh transitioned to Python once he realized that being a developer was his calling.
Adarsh is now available for hire

    Created an autonomous RC car using Raspberry Pi and neural networks to run a track without human intervention. This was done using supervised machine learning and a simple end-to-end network, and the project was showcased at a Beakerhead AI event.

  • DevOps

    Joined the DevOps team when they were transitioning from an old tech stack to a more modern one that was declarative.
    Via Terraform added Terragrunt and provided state management with Google Cloud Platform storage. Managed Concourse split-out tests, built into Gitlab CI with separate builders in Kubernetes. For Kubernetes used, KinD to replicate minimal cluster for faster turnaround, built with Go. Finally, a small Clojure app was used to load Java shared library to test request response or service.
