Hi,

You have reached homepage of Abhinav Singh. I am from Lucknow, India and currently living in San Francisco, California. Husband, Father, Musician, Engineer, Dog lover. I work at Google, Inc. hacking with Android and iOS mobile operating system for automation. I came to Google through acquisition of Appurify, Inc. where we were making tools for debugging, automated testing and performance optimization for native, hybrid and mobile web applications, enabling testing on real iOS and Android devices.

Before joining Appurify, I was consulting on building large scale messaging systems primarily using Erlang Open Telecom Platform and served as member of XMPP Standards Foundation for 3 years. During the same period I worked on my startup Jaxl that provided a real-time push transport for business applications over cloud that works cross-platform. wp-chat, a wordpress plugin providing real-time chat between customer and site owners built on-top of Jaxl platform. Some generic code written for Jaxl was open sourced on Github. I started my career at Oracle where I was building Supply chain management systems (OBIEE Technology). My first experience with large scale distributed systems came at Y! where I worked with Yahoo Cricket, News and Movies platform.

I graduated from Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati in field of Electronics and Communication Engineering in 2007. For major part of my graduation I was working on Automatic music information retrieval systems which involved extracting music features using speech processing and feeding into supervised and un-supervised machine learning algorithms for automatic music recommendation and categorization. I did my high school from City Montessorie School, Mahanagar, Lucknow.

While not at work I am either playing guitar or spending time with family. I was introduced to guitar by my school friends in Dec, 2002 when we used to play rock and bollywood music. Nowadays I enjoy playing blues with mix of Indian carnatic music. During my spare time I love reading and hacking into systems and sometimes creating applications for non-profit, fun and learning. Some projects I worked in the past Gtalkbots (down), Altertunes (down), IIT Guwahati Alumni Association Portal, Mobile apps search engine, Letsjam.
