Hi! I am Pranav Karawale.

About me

I am a student pursuing a degree in computer engineering. As a self-taught developer, my work usually involves developing websites, APIs, terminal utilities. I don't have a favorite programming language as of now, but the most used ones are TypeScript, Go and Python. I also occassionally contribute to open source. Learning some machine learning and Rust has always been on my bucket list, but I never really got close to it. Hopefully soon.

My accolades regarding programming include winning a gold medal under the skill "Web Technologies" at JuniorSkills 2021, a skill competition conducted all over India.

Besides computers, I have a lot of other interests. I watch a lot of football and basketball. For football, I am an avid supporter of Manchester United FC. For basketball, I'm a casual and watch the NBA. I am a decent player at both the sports. One of the things I'm working on is to be able to dunk a basketball.

My favorite artists keep changing, but Ed Sheeran and Eminem have been a staple of my music collection for a long time. I also like listening to old Bollywood songs ('90s and '00s). I am always on the look for indie music creators and would love to listen to some. Even though I am a terrible chess player, I enjoy keeping tabs on what's happening in the chess world.

Ways to reach me

I also have accounts on a few other services. You can use some of them to contact me:
