Hey, I'm Akshay Pall,

a Software Engineering Student at the University of Waterloo.

Hey there!

I'm an engineering student who loves to solve problems using my technical and communicative skill sets. I am currently looking for a Summer 2019 internship.

I have extensive experience with Java and am working to improve my C C++ Python and Scala every day!

I love Backend and Android development! You can always find me tweaking CursorAdapters and writing custom Span classes to create snappy and beautiful experiences!
