Hi 👋,

I'm Ankur Patil, a Mathematics and Computing undergraduate at IIT (BHU) Varanasi. As a tech enthusiast and open-source contributor, I am deeply passionate about exploring and leveraging cutting-edge technologies.

My expertise lies in APIs, Full Stack Webapps, Github Actions, and Blockchain. I am currently focused on the exciting fields of Cloud Computing and Cryptography.

In my spare time, I enjoy sharing my knowledge with the tech community through my technical blog.

Feel free to reach me on my handles mentioned above (although I'm more active on Linkedin 😅). Thanks for visiting my website :)

  • The Linux Foundation Mentorship (LFX ‘23) @ Google CloudPlatform

    Mar 2023 - Present

    I'm currently doing my Linux Foundation Mentorship (LFX'23) under CNCF - GoogleCloudPlatform, in which I'm creating Lit Components for open sourcing the frontend of Testgird. The project is based on Lit Framework, GO, TypeScript and involves writing frontend tests.

  • Silence Laboratories

    Oct 2022 - Dec 2022

    Reviewed cryptographic algorithms which were implemented in RUST. Got an exposure on lattice cryptography and RUST.

  • GSoC like internship @ Element.io/Matrix.org

    Jul 2022 - Sep 2022

    Since I was not a beginner to open source and didn’t fall into the beginner to open-source guidelines of GSoC, I was offered an internship instead of an official GSoC project under Element.io (a subsidiary of Matrix.org), where I did the implementation of creating knockable rooms and wrote cypress tests for the same. Knocking is the feature that enables users to send a request to join any room or space. The language used was TypeScript and the whole project was based on MERN.

  • Summer of Bitcoin’ 22 @ Specter Desktop

    May 2022 - Aug 2022

    I did my Summer of Bitcoin’22 under Specter Desktop, where I implemented JWT Authentication to REST API for improving the security of the API and making the API more scalable. I also wrote the pytests for the same. The project was implemented in Flask, with which I had no prior experience but I knew Django so I caught up quickly with Flask and finished the project on time.
