I’m Nishu Jain: A geek, cursed with little creativity.
Professionally, I’m a Software Engineer who likes to play with data, algorithms, and especially, Artificial Intelligence/Deep Learning.
I speak mostly Python but, have polyglottic tendencies. I believe in developing real-world products, and not just doing competitive programming (although I’m pretty decent at it).
And apart from being a full-fledged Tech-Geek, I’ve got a few real hobbies … like —
As you can see, I’m writing on Medium … da?
I sometimes do freelance writing as well, so if you’ve something interesting for me, ping me on Fiverr. …

The legendary investor Warren Buffett began investing at the mere age of 11. He has expressed regret that he couldn’t start earlier. Well, all of us may have passed that point now, but it is never too late to start investing. I certainly wish for a time travel machine so I could go back in time and instruct my younger version to begin investing as early as possible, but until that happens, the next best thing is to start investing now.

Experimenting with your career can be challenging, more psychologically than financially — because it’s associated with the feeling of uncertainty and fear. And most people prefer to stay in that fear and continue with their dead-end 9-to-5 jobs for the rest of their lives.
But there are few, who go beyond that barrier and enter new realms of excitement and contentment.
Are you one of those brave ones? — Maybe
Remember, there’s no such thing as an “established path” to your career and success. And experimenting with your career doesn’t necessarily bring…
