Troy hails from the foothills of Darjeeling, India. While earning his degrees he started freelancing as a web-developer. He crafted solutions using Wordpress, Joomla!, Drupal and PHP. After earning his masters degree he joined Tata Consultancy Services in Mumbai, India and used Java to help launch one of India's first SaaS products. He jumped onto the SlideShare wagon, which in 2011 was racing fast on Ruby-on-Rails. At SlideShare, he wore multiple hats and HTTParty'd till SlideShare's acquisition by LinkedIn. At LinkedIn, he focused on integration between different systems and technical stack. He also worked on analytics product which processed 1 billion events a day! Troy quit LinkedIn to work on his startups QREOH and Solidry. Both of which were shut down at some point as oxygen dried up. Since then, he's been consulting with multiple companies helping them build high performance web apps and mobile apps. Somewhere between, he became a digital nomad and is currently on the lookout for a tribe to join.
