Hello, there… How is it going?
I am Shivang, I’ve been writing code for the past 10 years professionally & 14 years personally. In my career, I’ve gotten the opportunity to work on large scale internet services for some of the industry giants on several different domains such as E-commerce, Fintech, Telecom and others.
I’ve written applications from the bare bones, right from the idea to production, maintained code, worked in production support on systems receiving millions of hits every single day.
My last job was @HP, I worked there as a Full-Stack developer in their Technical Solutions – R&D team. In case you want to read about my professional work or just want to say hello, here is my LinkedIn profile!! 🙂

Here Are A Couple Of My Recent Projects
Emotional Cricket Fan – A Browser-based Multiplayer Strategy Game
Emotional Cricket Fan is an online multiplayer strategy game on Cricket, where we use our business acumen & cricketing knowledge to make smart investment decisions.
We pick virtual matches to invest, taking into account factors like the venue, weather, rain, pitch report, teams playing, batting bowling strengths of teams, their international rankings & a lot more to get the maximum returns on our investments.
The game has a virtual currency, that also enables us to pick stocks of virtual sports companies to further increase our profits & compete against the other players. ECF is integrated with Facebook that enables us to play & compete against our friends on Facebook.
I’ve built this using Java, Spring Boot, Html5, React, Google Cloud Datastore, Memcache & the game runs on Google Cloud.
Here is a glimpse of the project
MyCricket – An Online Network Of Cricket Buffs
MyCricket is an app that connects cricket buffs online. It gamifies the human emotions that typically surface during a cricket match.
There is nothing cooler than watching a cricket match with our buddies. But we are rarely, physically co-located. MyCricket empowers us to express our thoughts with every ball bowled. Have our say who should bat next, who should bowl next. Convey our strategic & analytical views on the ongoing event. Realize what the country as a whole wants. Know the mood of the nation. Endorse or challenge our friends’ predictions & opinions. Predict the future moments, invest rep on them. Invest rep on the players we count on. Win bounty for being accurate. Watch & relish our reputation grow as a cricket Fan.
