I'm Vaishali. I'm a freelance kernel hacker, system programmer, foss community 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. Usually I'm also active in local meetups like kernel meetup and Diversifying open source. I occasionally write on my blog and quora. My old blog can be found here.
