Howdy! Welcome to my portfolio site. My name is Akshay and I love working on Web and Artificial Intelligence related projects. I don't have any fancy CS degree yet but I'm working on it. I've been programming since 9th standard and I enjoy every aspect of it (Even the debugging part :p).
Recently, I have been learning through Udacity, adding more structure to my education on Web Technologies, Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Software development in general.
I'm Mentor and Organization Admin for Python-HYDRA in Google Summer of Code 2018.
We're working on two projects, the first is a parser to generate Hydra vocabulary (which is the only thing needed to create Hydra based APIs) from OpenAPI specs. The second project we're working on is a generic client called python-hydra-agent that can connect any hydra based API and provides an easy yet fast querying experience using redis and redis-graph.py.
I'm also mentoring around 160 students across various Udacity Nanodegree programs (FullStack Nanodegree, React Nanodegree and Deep Learning Nanodegree).
Last year, I worked with Hydra Community Group under Python Software Foundation for GSoC 2017 on a project called Hydrus which is basically a set of Python based tools for easier and efficient creation of Hypermedia driven REST-APIs. Hydrus utilizes the power of Linked Data to create a powerful REST APIs to serve data. Hydrus uses the Hydra Draft standard for creation and documentation of its APIs.
I also founded a platform called Typingeek to help people learn typing more efficiently.
