One Line intro
Hey there! I’m Magesh, an entrepreneur, technologist, mentor and an open source evangelist. You can get in touch with me through twitter @iMagesh.
I’m Magesh, Founder, and CEO at Hash14, a software company that provides both consulting and training services. I’m also the lead of Facebook Developer Circle Chennai, a local developer community directly supported by Facebook. I’ve worked for a few good startups and SME’s in Chennai which adds up to my 9 years of technical and corporate experience. I’m passionate about Technology. I love blogging, tweeting and socializing at tech events.
I started a software consulting startup and have been running it for the last 5 years where I manage a small team of developers, helping them learn and write better code every day. Along with my team, I help startups and SME’s build amazing products and get it off the ground and scale to support more active users in the long term.
Apart from that, I’m also the lead of Facebook Developer Circle Chennai, a local developer community directly supported by Facebook.
Previously I was part of a Sequoia-backed startup Shopo.in, which was a very popular marketplace for niche design and handcrafted products in India. Apart from that, I have also worked for few more SME’s in India. Soon after completing college back in 2009 I used to freelance during free time, I was helping people set up their website and blog using WordPress, drupal and joomla.
I’m totally passionate about technology and startups. Love how people use technology to solve real life problems. I also love reading or hearing stories about startups and amazing entrepreneurs. Most of the time during weekends I go around the city shaking hands with strangers at local technology and startup events, love meeting like-minded people and making new friends. I’m not an avid reader but I read non-fiction books from time to time.
Some of my friends call me a health freak because I talk more about consuming healthy food and drinks. I like being fit and eating healthy food although I don’t get to exercise much these days but I often go for a walk or cycle along the east coast trying to balance it.
I like to watch movies that are inspiring. Friends, Big bang theory, Dexter, Breaking Bad and Game of thrones, Suits are some of the tv series I love the most. I don’t have the habit of following sports on tv. I often dream about traveling around the world, go hiking, trekking and experience all those adventures but I have never done that — would try some of it soon. Alright, Think I’ve told enough. To know more talk to me 🙂 Say hi on twitter @iMagesh.
