Abhinav Asthana grew up in several small towns in the northern part of India. A couple of those towns were Basti, 150 miles from the capital. He’s been a computer geek since 5th grade, when his Dad bought a pretty sophisticated pentium for the time. The small towns he lived in were not the most connected parts of the world, and as such, he experienced the impact of computers and the internet improving lives from an early age.
He enjoys reading books, and as a kid he was into fiction – reading Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, novels, Agatha Christie, etc… whatever was relevant at the at the time. Slowly, he started to drift towards popular science, design books, and non-fiction, more towards the tech sphere of the world.
In 2012, the projects Abhinav was involved in has the same point – how to work with the API’s that connected the front and backends of the application. And the tools he had to use never helped him develop efficiently. He thought – what would make the better?
