Intro

I started programming when I was 8 years old. I started by learning Java to make fun Windows utility apps which would help me do things that I was too lazy to do everyday. When I was 12 I got my first phone (iPhone 5S) and I started developing iOS apps for me and my family. I made my first game, Dart Clicker, just by trying out new things and watching tutorials. In 2015, I had finished making a game called Treasure Chase which allowed people to use the real world as a map to play a game of treasure hunt. When a tour guide met me at an airport, he saw Treasure Chase and wanted me to make somethingfor his city tour company. That is where Tecshala was born.

I started to make more apps to use at home and helped friends in school make their ideas come to life. In 2016, I was awarded an scholarship by Apple for Treasure Chase and was able to attend the World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC 2016) in San Francisco, CA. I spent the year after that learning more about Computer Science and AI. Everyday after school I would spend time programming for our Robotics team and learned more about computer Vision. In 2017, our team went to the First Robotics Competition's World Championships in Houston, TX. I recently won another scholarship by Apple and will be attending the WWDC 2017 in San Jose, CA. I am also working on a project to create an electric self driving go kart which drives where every you want it to go on sidewalks.

About

I currently am in 9th grade at Atlanta International School. I have been there since 2013. Before that I spent 3 years living in India. I was born in New Delhi but have spent majority of my life in Atlanta, GA. I have been playing the guitar for 5 year. I was in a band for a few years and we played at different venues in Alpharetta, GA. I also play the bassoon in my school concert band. I first started making web apps when I was 8 because a group of my friends and I wanted to make a "Facebook for kids", so we made Kidsbook. Since then, I have made multiple iOS apps and websites for friends, family and myself to use.
