My name is Gourav Dhar
I started "The Geeky Minds" with the goal of offering readers a glimpse into my thoughts and experiences as a software developer. What started out as weekly posts ( on topics like system design, information security etc. ) is evolving into a dynamic site packed with information about various topics that are near and dear to me. Take some time to explore the blogs and see for yourself what makes you curious and eager. Read on and interact with the community!
A Bit About The Admin
The website admin - Gourav Dhar, a 2019 graduate from IIT Roorkee where he pursued his bachelors in Electronics and Communication Engineering. But life had other plans for him and now he is a software developer. Started off his career as an Android Developer at Samsung.
In December 2020, he joined PulseLabs as a Backend Developer, where he is currently working.
Apart from being a software developer, he also writes tech related blogs. You can find them under the blogs section at the top. He is also into PC gaming and a binge watcher.
For years, he has served as a useful source of motivation, help or advice. Finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it and started writing tech related blogs with a mission to give others a taste of his thoughts and experiences, and has been at it ever since. Take some time to explore the blog and find what sparks your interest. Read on and enjoy!
