Hello there! I’m Divyendra Patil (aka Div – Like the HTML tag) If you have come across this website, you either have too much time on your hand reading quora/medium aimlessly OR popped by in to read one of my blog posts. If you aren’t either, you are probably a recruiter trying to find a “suitable” match for your next big thing. Either way, welcome!
If you are stuck, I’m always willing to solve a problem no matter how big or small. Email is provided at the bottom!
I started to code at the age of 9 using BASIC (It was a thing back then). Which language do I code in now? Whatever is needed and necessary for the work to be done. I like to build anything and everything. Computer science and engineering is more of a lifestyle than a job. I don’t mind waking up in the middle of the night without a sweat to address my pager. My mentor always said, “If you love what you do, you will never work a single day in your life.”
I do have a life beyond computing. Running (Fastest mile: 7:45), Bouldering, Writing. I like to chat about stocks, investment, finance, physics, space & time and aerospace engineering.
Master’s in Cyber Security
Bachelor’s in Computer Engineering

Why I lead teams?
What do I know? I always loved helping people. Being successful at almost anything means having a passion for it. If you see somebody with even reasonable intelligence and a terrific passion for what they do and who can get people around them to march even when those people can’t see over the top of the next hill, things are going to happen.
