TR Rohith


Hey there!
I'm a passionate person who loves developing solutions for challenging problems. I started my journey way back developing Android apps and other small applications on my own. However, my journey really took a new twist and turn when I participated in Smart India Hackathon 2018 where we won the first prize. This led us to an opportunity to work with the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation where we developed a solution under the Digital India Initiative which is being tested and used for collection of CPI Data Across India in real time which was previously in pen and paper. I have also worked with organizations and conducted some workshops for non-tech colleagues on how to build simple chatbots for their use with DialogFlow and Microsoft LUIS. Having worked in multiple other organizations I know how the project structure and flow along with the scale and responsibilities that come in deploying the code to production. Of course, I’ve participated and won in multiple other Hackathons. My most prominent one though I didn’t win but was in the Top 20 teams Shortlisted by the AICTE and MHRD to take part in the International Hackathon called Singapore India Hackathon in which none other than the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi was in attendance! Plenty more such fun experiences that we can talk about. Feel free to connect with me to discuss!
