About Me

Hello! I'M Harshal Tripathi.

Developer by heart. Love to take pictures and being ocassaional chef.

I like reading, a lot! But do keep it to non-finctional, if not related to technology. And Yes! Problems excite me, could spend days without blinking, if stuck. One of the strengths - "Getting into details"

If you find any "About me" section for me, which does not mention coffee, at least once, Don't trust that page.

Things I CARE about

The little things you can relate to me, if you know me, if don't these will help you get along, quick!

Java & Python

My strengths include Java, for Web & Desktop applications and Python for web-scrapping and scripting tasks. Have been developing for more than 5 years using several frameworks.

Hadoop & Spark

Batch & Stream processing engines have most of my attention for almost a year now. Have worked on traditional Hadoop Map-Reduce and Spark stream processing for social analytics.

Mongo DB & Oracle DB

I have been working on RDBMS & No-Sql databases for almost 5 and 2 years respectively. Some of my most challenging works do include optimizing queries for NFRs.


I'm not sure what 'u' & 'n' stand for in 'FUN', but 'F' definitely stands for food. Have been eating food for past 26 years, and loved most of it. [:


It's more than a hobby, it just blends me in. If anything is not working out well, a good photo has solution to my mood. More into portraits, just a beginner.


A lot of places in the bucket list, covered a few. Love to sit peacefully in a completely unknown place, enjoying nature and peace.

My Social

Socializing makes us different from other species.
Hmmm! might be what zuckerburg understood in 2004.
