Keynote at RubyConf India 2019

In 2017 I became the CTO of shaadi.com. Previously the biggest team I had managed was 7 people. Now I found myself in charge of 125 developers at a scaled up organiation. I had to learn a lot and learn fast. And one day I had an epiphany – that the organisation is a computer and that management is programming. In this talk I go into some ideas about how to scale the ‘carbon based wetware’ that is the human brain.
