Hey there! My name's Shashank Saxena (or more commonly known as Shank) and 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 I 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.
