Hey there, friends! I’m Jawahar Prasad, but most folks just call me JP. Yep, that’s me – your friendly neighborhood tech enthusiast with a passion for all things digital!
My journey into the world of computers began at the ripe old age of 11, when I first laid eyes on a monochrome computer screen. It was love at first sight! Picture this: a group of my buddies huddled around a computer, engrossed in a game called “Prince of Persia.” The graphics, the keyboard, the mouse – it was like magic! And just like that, my life took a whole new direction.
From tinkering with GW Basic on MS-DOS to Windows 3.1, Q-Basic, Dbase, Foxpro, C, Oracle, etc., and then diving headfirst into the world of HTML and internet wizardry in 1998, my fascination with technology only grew stronger. I dabbled in everything from game design to 3D animation, experimenting with software like Photoshop, Flash, Illustrator, and 3DS Max along the way.
Fast forward to high school, where I found myself entrusted with the task of setting up the school computer network. And during my engineering days, I took the lead on developing various applications for automating conference registrations and building department websites.
Nowadays, you’ll find me living the dream in the bustling tech hub of the San Francisco Bay Area. But before that, I had the pleasure of working with some pretty amazing companies like Yahoo!, Flipkart, and Amazon. Oh, and let’s not forget about my stint as a co-founder of Quicko Technosoft Labs (which you might know as Whatfix!).
When I’m not busy coding up a storm, you can bet I’m indulging in one of my greatest passions: food! Give me a plate of hot, spicy Indian dishes – preferably marinated chicken or a steaming bowl of home-cooked biryani – and I’m in heaven. And speaking of heaven, there’s nothing I love more than exploring new places with my family and immersing myself in different cultures.
Speaking of family, I’ve got a wonderful wife named Vidhya, who’s all about history and fashion. She’s got an eye for design and a knack for spotting the latest trends in high fashion accessories and handbags.
And then there are my two little rascals, Manav and Nyra. Let’s just say they’re both experts in the art of keeping me on my toes!
So, what can you expect from this blog? Well, I’ll be sharing my experiences and insights into leadership, technology, and building scalable systems. Consider it your backstage pass to the world of JP – where fun meets innovation, and every day brings a new adventure. Thanks for joining me on this journey – I can’t wait to see where it takes us! 😃
