Hi! My name is Yash Mathur

Breakneck learner, technology enthusiast, and an aspiring software engineer

Hey there! I'm a software engineering student at the University of Waterloo. I love solving problems and building cool stuff.

I've been programming since the 6th grade. I started off with web development, and gradually got into Android development. More recently, I started taking part in competitive programming contests.

Last summer, I worked at a start up in Mumbai called Upetch Ventures as a full-stack developer. It was a lot of fun because I had a lot of responsibilites - from working on projects single handedly to conducting interviews, I did it all.
