Who I Am

Hey there! My name's Shashank Saxena (or more commonly known as Shank). I graduated from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a degree in computer engineering. I currently work at AWS on DynamoDB as a software engineer.

I'm usually hanging out with my friends over some bubble tea or ping pong and I really really like sushi. Otherwise, I read a lot of online articles regarding changes in technology and try to stay up to date with the latest tech news.

I have experience with a couple of different areas in computer engineering. However, my favorite topic is distributed systems and cloud computing. I think distributed systems is a very interesting field that incorporates a lot of other areas of focus (OS, networking, algorithms, data science, etc). It's certainly going to be on the rise in the next few years with the vast amount of data that is being produced daily.

Let's talk about it! You can use the icons at the bottom in the side bar, or use the contact form.
