About Advait πŸ€”

I'm Advait. This is my personal website and blog. While I run a performance-based meditation coaching app, this blog is where I write about my favorite books, entrepreneurship, marketing, and whatever else I want to write about. I'm also a 3rd year undergrad in the Department of Mathematics at Carleton University. Although, I am usually based in the picturesque city of Ottawa, I'll be living in Silicon Valley for most of 2020 to give my best shot at doing something to make a dent in the universe. *cue cheesey music*

And if you want to learn more then read below.
1. I was born and raised in Mumbai, Maharashtra and went to school here and here.
2. After that, I moved to Vancouver to go to University of British Columbia (UBC) for Engineering.
3. While in school, I realised I didn't find joy in engineering, and decided to transfer out to Carleton University to study math and computers.
4. I started my first real business during the summer of my transition between universities - Deep Meditate.
5. Unexpectedly, after 1 year, real people were willing to pay for the app, and so I got a business license in early 2019, and setup shop as Simply Better Apps.
6. All the while, I continue to be a student at Carleton University learning about abstract math, and computers.

And that my friend, is where we are now.

Currently Reading πŸ“–

Applied Cryptography Bruce Schneier This book is quite the authoritative text on applied cryptography, and is seeming like a great reference manual rather than a beginners guide to cryptography. I am learning a lot, but not at the pace I usually like. I plan on swapping this book with another very soon, but it's still going to remain on my shelf, you know, just in case I want to dig deeper into a certain protocol or cipher.
