Harsh Kapadia


I am Harsh Kapadia (he/him), a Software Developer. I have a keen interest in Web Development, Computer Networking, Git and communities.

I have been enjoying learning more about computers at my current role as a Field Applications Engineer at AMD, while trying to lead a more disciplined and balanced life.

I like building projects, talking about my learnings in Tech, and writing about Git and Networking protocols like TCP, SSH, TLS and Homa.

I started Our Tech Community (OTC) four years ago and we regularly conduct events for all of us to learn more! Apart from that, I am a GitHub Campus Expert as well.

I love reading books, listening to music, watching YouTube and Bird Watching!

Feel free to get in touch with me!
