I'm Vaishali. I'm a freelance kernel hacker, system programmer, foss program architect, tech writer and speaker based out of Bangalore, India.

I provide freelance consulting services on Linux Kernel and system programming related projects for clients around the world. You can check out my Linux Kernel patches, Linkedin profile and github profile to know more about my work. I also care about increasing diversity in open source communities. I'm currently associated as a co-organizer with RGSoC and Linux kernel co-coordinator for Outreachy.

I love speaking at tech and open source conferences. I'm also a firm believer of open education and try to engage in related activities whenever I can. I often receive invitations from Indian universities to talk about my work. Check here for my speaking engagements and here for the talks I'm offering to universities in 2018. Usually I'm also active in local meetups like kernel meetup and Diversifying open source. Note that I'm on a conference break from December 2017 to May 2018.

I occasionally write on my blog and quora. My old blog can be found here.

If you want to hire me [full-time/part-time/consulting assistance] for your projects or want to invite me to speak at your conference/university, feel free to contact me here.
