Hi! I am Vinayak Mehta, also known as vortex_ape.
I love to write free and open-source code that helps other humans. I also like long distance running, guitar playing (I have a black Strat!), and stargazing. I talk about FOSS, API design, science fiction, time and the meaning of life, among other things.
I want to work on developing solutions for real world problems using computer science and software/data engineering. If you would like to talk more about why software is eating the world or have a problem we can solve together, shoot me an email at vmehta94 at gmail dot com!
Currently, I'm working on Camelot and Excalibur (a Python library and web interface) which help anyone extract data tables from PDFs. If you find them useful, consider supporting their development by becoming a backer or a sponsor on OpenCollective!
I graduated with a Bachelors in Computer Science from Bharati Vidyapeeth's College of Engineering, New Delhi (in May 2016), where I worked broadly in Information Retrieval and Machine Learning, as a research scholar under Prof. Narina Thakur.
