I have over 10 years of experience in software development. I did my BS in computer science and then worked for couple of years in Microsoft Technologies. Then I did Masters in Computer Science with focus on Algorithms and Databases. I worked for 3 years for 2 startups as a full stack engineer doing Rails, Ruby, Javascript and Java. I am also a fan of functional programming languages, and have done some projects in Scala. My last startup was acquired by Walmart to form @WalmartLabs, where I worked on projects dealing with big data, analytics , data pipeline and data visualization. I recently joined Uber as a full stack engineer.


  • Data Structures with Javascript
  • Time: TBD | Room: E-135
During my career as a full stack engineer, i have opportunity to interview many front end engineers. Many a times I meet someone who is awesome in front end technologies but they do not know about simple data structures. In this talk I will first motivate the importance of data structures and then give simple intuitive introduction to data structures like Array, List, Map, Queue, Stack, Set, Tree. Then I will also go through strategies to solve interview problems through some examples.
