About me

Hello. :) My name is Vivek Ghaisas. I go by the nicks polybuildr (GitHub, Phabricator, etc) and vghaisas (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). My personal website can be found at

I'm currently (2018) a Software Engineer at Google. When I actively contributed to MediaWiki, I was a Computer Science and Engineering student at the International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H).

I've been working on the Mediawiki core and extensions from late December, 2014. I was a GSoC intern with the Foundation for 2015.

My work

A majority of the things I build are web apps and websites. I have a significant amount of experience working with HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, Python and a few other languages.

You can find more details about my work on my LinkedIn profile, my GitHub profile (polybuildr) and my blog.
