I help people unlock themselves as compassionate engineers with rigorous socio-technical training. I believe engineering is both an art as well as a science. I believe great engineers are master crafts people with an eye for detail, with an understanding of people in the context of society and with a desire to create value through their craft. I believe that software engineering can only be built on top of a solid CS background. There are not short cuts to greatness, it takes time, dedication and passion.
