Hey there, Are you new to these parts of the internet? If you are, then allow me to be your guide to help understand what Mixster is to me and why this little corner of the web has been an integral part of who I am and have become over the years. Also, what we really do here.
Someone truly great once quoted that “if you can’t explain it simply. you don’t understand it well enough” That’s the way of life, isn’t it? Hence, I would like to take a shot in explaining how Scrapy‘s bigger brother, Spidermon validates the data scraped by spiders, how the gears turn and in the process, I would learn as well. Let’s jump in.
Let’s make this one quick. You have been seeing a lot of people working on Actions on Google, you have seen a lot of people asking you to review their actions. You have also played way too many quizzes on the Google Assistant. But, you never got around to building one for yourself.

ALiAS is the largest open-source community at Amity University and as one of the founding member of our small 500+ active member community nothing makes me more happier than writing about it and looking back on our accomplishments, failures and new initiatives.
2018 is coming to an end. For some, it didn’t go quite well. Some would say it went just as good as the last year. But after attending Mozfest, you might find me saying that my 2018 went something like this.
Henceforth, this post won’t be a regular “My Awesome Experience blog” of a conference that you won’t bother reading. But, I rather feel obligated to discuss the people, the works, and the city that was behind Mozfest 2018 and Sustain Summit 2018 that one should really focus on. Let’s jump in.
Recently, I got the chance to go on my first international solo trip to the United States of America, to participate in one of the biggest undergraduate hackathons at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, HackMIT 2018. It was undoubtedly the experience of a lifetime. I thank my college, Amity University, Uttar Pradesh, TechMIT, part of TechX, Google Inc. and my parents for supporting me and enabling me to visit this glorious event and spend a week in the States to explore further opportunities.
Standing there in the sun, was the best feeling ever.
I learned, had fun, sought crazy experiences, and even bigger adventures. Experimented at every opportunity I had. Met and talked to so many great people from different countries, ethnicities and cultures. I clicked photos, rode the subways, the trains, the cabs, the planes, cycled through the streets of 8th Avenue, admiring the great architecture, tried strange new things, made mistakes, made friends, made pancakes.
All in all I mean to say, US is a great country to visit and travel. Go for it, if you have the chance or the means. That being said, allow me to give you an all-access tour of HackMIT 2018.
