About me

I specialise in building reactive event-driven microservices with Spring Boot. My experience also includes front-end development with Angular and React, as well as working with Microsoft SQL and MongoDB. I am able to switch between front-end, back-end, and database seamlessly. I have a diploma in Computer Engineering and a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. I had been very passionate for machine learning and deep learning but transitioned to full-stack development. I have experience in all stages of the software development life cycle, including requirement gathering, analysis and design, and deployment. I am skilled in designing maintainable and extensible code architectures. I am getting better at working with Docker and Kubernetes for deployments, and building efficient CI and deployment pipelines is an area of interest for me. I also have experience with agile methodologies, code quality, and Test-Driven Development. I am a passionate developer who is always eager to learn new technologies and practices. I share my learning experiences on my blog, ankushchoubey.com, and welcome visitors to say hi.
