Hello!

I'm Vaishali. I'm an open source developer based out of Berlin, Germany.

I have been mostly working on Linux Kernel, embedded linux and system programming related stuff since last 5 years. Occassionally I also get involved with paid/volunteer projects related to open source community management, technical writing, documentation etc. You can check out my Linux Kernel patches and github profile to get some idea about my work.

I am a firm believer of open education and care about building kind and diverse communities. Usually I also like to get involved with local open source communities and meetups. Currently I'm associated with Outreachy as a (volunteer)coordinator for the linux kernel projects. I was associated as a co-organizer of RGSoC with Travis Foundation for 3 years. I sometimes write on my blog and make tech related drawings. I was used to write on quora during the early days of my career but I'm not much active there these days!

I occasionally love speaking at conferences about open source, embedded systems, Linux kernel etc. I was used to conduct Linux Kernel workshops in Indian universities, I no longer do that. But the Linux kernel workshop material and slides of my all talks can be accessed here and here.

If you want to discuss anything related to above interests of mine, feel free to email me at me@vaishalithakkar.in. I'm generally always up for connecting with like minded folks.
