I'm Kundan Singh. I'm a software developer at DCRefers, an initiative of Open Law Library. I write softwares, apps using Python and NodeJS, with focus on development of backends, APIs, business logic and algorithms, infrastructure management and scaling, and little bit of frontends.

My research interest is in using data intelligence to improve human decision-making and reduce biases. For this, I'm experimenting with Data Science & Predictive A.I. techniques, especially for challenges in health, recruitment, and finance systems.

🔨 Hacks & Fun

Best HN - Save Time
I use to spend lots of time reading HackerNews articles. I created this small best-hn utility which generates a summary of top stories in form of visual cards, that saves many hours weekly. check

Swap Memory
I wrote a .bash script to manually free swap memory + RAM to handle sudden traffic spikes, because the cloud service we were using took ~10 hours to process our RAM increment request. It was fun to not let our system go down due to lack of RAM space. Later on, we realized that issue was in the way we configured our reverse proxy and not lack of RAM.

WhatsApp Web Mutation
Before WhatsApp allowed APIs officially, I wrote custom APIs to automate several business use-cases using the MutationObserver interface.
