About Me

My name is Jaykishan Mutkawoa, though everyone knows me by Nitin. This blog is simply about my passion for Linux and Open source software though sometimes, I feel to blog about Space explorations or any interesting stuff that I came across. I have been participating in Open source and Linux meetups since years back. I am currently working as a DevOps Engineer at Orange Cloud for Business – Orange Business Services. I live in Mauritius, a little island in the Indian Ocean. I am also a member of cyberstorm.mu.
I believed in collaborative work such as the IETF hackathons which I have been participating since 2015. I represented Mauritians at the IETF – Internet Engineering Task Force 102 Montreal Canada hackathon remotely from Mauritius. I was also invited by the ISOC – Internet Society to be a facilitator at the AIS – African Internet Summit 2018 Hackathon which took place in Dakar, Senegal. I was one of the facilitators for the NTP – Network Time Protocol hackathon.
Besides, I am extremely curious about Space explorations and exo-planetary research such as the Kepler projects. When it comes to the multiverse theory, I can’t stop thinking about it. Science, Psychology or even Neuroscience are the topics that I like to adventure around. I’m not good at Art and Painting, but will surely try that in the future.
