I’m Aravind, Senior Engineering Manager at DIAGNAL. I work mostly in the backend stack, solving problems at OTT scale. I’m a petrolhead and likes to push buttons on keyboards & cameras. This is my personal blog where I write random unfiltered tech notes related to software, embedded systems and cars.
