So it was 16th Jan and I had to leave for Bangalore early in the morning next day, and I was packed up and ready to go. I was looking forward to having an awesome experience, to learn alot and interact with like-minded people.

The trip was every bit what I had expected it to be.

Abhas sir's office was even more interesting, I took my own sweet time to glance through everything as there were so many awesome things like:

- A Thinkpad with Debian Testing, with KDE Plasma installed.
- A beautiful custom 60% mechanical keyboard with a mixture of cherry switches for different keys.
- Many more custom mechanical keyboard layouts.

## About Me

Anim ad consequat labore qui duis cillum dolor non do culpa occaecat sunt pariatur eu esse do qui consectetur nisi nisi non velit aliqua occaecat officia duis sit ut sit elit ea mollit id dolore cillum adipisicing.
I am an engineering student and aspiring techologist. I am very curious by nature and have passion for building things and solving problems. To quench this curiousity I explore and experiment with new technologies in computer software/hardware as much as I can.

This blog is where I intend to write down my experiences from these quests and from my never-ending journey of learning.

PS: Please pardon my language, I am still learning to be a better writer.
