Hey! I am Ritesh Patil, a Student Passionate about Computer Science. I enjoy creating web applications that live on the internet and can be accessed by everyone. I have been developing software for the past 2 years and it has been awesome so far!
Fast forward to today, I am an undergrad at National Institute of Technology Rourkela, India pursuing my bachelors in Industrial Design. These days, my main focus is on writing performant and industry-standard code, primarily utilising React and Node.js. I am meticulous in my attention to detail and am well-versed in what it takes to create excellent user-centric experiences.
The pandemic turned me into an avid cooking enthusiast. I'd like to think I've come a long way by trying new cuisines and meals since COVID-19, when I scarcely cooked anything except eggs. Indian and Italian cusines are something that I very much link. I'm learning how to make traditional Indian food and a variety of pastas in the coming months.
I'm the friend who casually drops meme references into discussions and looks at you funny if you don't recognise them. I am a huge huge huge Potter head and love fantasy/scifi movies. The Lord of the rings, Star Wars, The Matrix are some of the top ones. And who does not like good old Marvel movies? You might have guessed that I am a huge rock music fan, I love Queen!
I have lived across muliple states of India and have travelled to a few. I like to think this makes me adapt to new environments with ease, and has taught me to be curious. Regularly I go onto trips with friends and family. Be it train, roadtrip or flights, I'm in for everything
HackNITR Hackathon is one of the largest student run hackathons in the eastern part of India. Organised by GDSC NIT Rourkela and Opencode, the hackathon endeavours to bring young talent under one roof.

Isn't that amazing
