Udit Desai

Web Developer

Welcome To Incognitech!
Ramblings of an Incognito Mind :P


Histoire de ma vie...

Udit hails from India & is found working on his laptop with Pink Floyd, Dire Straits or Hans Zimmer OSTs. He's pursuing double major in Computer Science & Engineering at Santa Clara University to enhance his edge over current technology and gain global exposure. Prior to this, He graduated in Computer Science and holds a major in Information Technology. Udit came across WordPress when he joined rtCamp. And in no time he grasped the ins & outs of WordPress and made it the crux of his profession.

He’s a proud contributor to WordPress 4.1, 4.2 & 4.3, and maintains a couple of plugins on the WordPress repository & Github with the belief in Open Source future of Web & its equilibrium.

Right now, he is constantly improving himself in web technologies like NodeJS, MongoDB, AngularJS; mobile technologies in Android/iOS/React and Data Science field at Santa Clara University. He's passionate about what he works in Software Engineering field and that's the key why he's a perfectionist in his projects at hand.

When he’s not looking at his black window of terminal, he is rambling into his incognito mind, dreaming about that damn cool EF180mm f/3.5L Macro USM Lens with a pixel perfect picture from his DSLR or how good cricketer he would have been; if not a developer. He's also a Foodie & a Movie-buff!
