The Year End Note - Other Work Way

I do a lot of other things from my primary association with VLlife. One of that is involvement with OGD (

So what did I learn there? Quite a bit of other things: about human resources and importance of better communication in a startup culture, about managing a team, about meeting differing expectations from customers, and just a lot of other things that are involved in making a company of what it is and would be. Essentially, I did gain a lot of experience in things other than my primary interest: research and coding. It has been a wonderful journey so far with Yogesh Wagh doing all the hard work, and I supporting the tech team when needed. 

Thank you all at OGD for teaching me things that otherwise I would never acquire, and hope you learned some bits from me as well ;-) 
Oh, and by the way, if you are restaurant or QSR owner, or have a multi outlet chain, you should probably check us out at: or 


The Year End Note - One Work Way

So the year is coming to an end. What did I learn this year? Quite a lot I must say. Overall, it had been a lot of fun this year, as I learned quite a bit of image processing, object recognition using machine learning models, building custom machine learning models that run on smartphones and in the process make some apps (Woundly: that are currently being used in a clinical research study for treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. In the process I learned a hell lot of medical terms as well. I also learned how to be more forbearing when making a video tutorial. This is the first ever I made (Woundly tutorial:, but I think, I can now make more videos on Youtube ;-). Possibly, something that I may try in the coming year. 

I also developed (NurseAssist:, along with my colleague Kiran Kakulte for tracking Nurse visits for a nurse assisted clinical trial. We also build the infrastructure necessary - using NodeJS/MySQL backend, the same backed is also used for the Woundly app described above. 

Side Note on tech stack for above apps:
1. Android Native, OpenCV
2. NodeJS / MySQL 
3. AngularJS for Web portal (This cannot be shared because it is not open to public)

PS: On another side note, if you or any one you know is affected by diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) and you live in India, you may register your interest for participating in a currently running clinical trial at:
