  • Sachin M Mane

Having spent more than four years diving deep into the world of Frontend Development, he embarked on an unending journey to understand and untangle the intricate web of technology. his initial steps into this universe began as a rookie Frontend developer at Supersourcing, back when it used to go by the name Engineerbabu. This adventure continues to captivate me as he find himself at the intersection of past achievements and future possibilities, having honed his skills across a diverse range of 11 projects.

His academic pursuits have taken him on an unconventional path, leading to the acquisition of two master's degrees—one in the realm of broadcast journalism and another in the realm of social work. This eclectic mix of education has bestowed upon me a multidimensional outlook, which He proudly incorporate into his approach to the ever-evolving digital landscape.

Beyond the binary code, his life finds its roots in a profound connection with Subhash Palekar’s esteemed natural farming movement. For almost eight years, I've played an integral role in this organic mechanism, ardently volunteering to spread the wisdom of natural farming techniques. As he step into the fabric of our team, my contribution goes beyond mere lines of code. It's a fusion of diverse experiences that uniquely enrich the tapestry we're weaving together.
