Reflecting on the journey and bidding farewell to Code for Nepal community

Published June 18, 2021

I remember the exact date, it’s October 17th, 2016 - A day when I landed into the AskNepal initiative while doing random online research; a day when I casually message one of the founders of Code for Nepal, Ravi Kumar, expressing my interest in leading and contributing. Looking back, it’s difficult for me to summarize the journey in words; almost 5 years went by within the blink of eyes.

Upskilling in the domain of mechanical engineering with data science

Published June 16, 2021

I am Nabin Joshi, aData fellow at Code for Nepal . I am a mechanical engineering student. I received my bachelor’s degree in 2019 from Kathmandu University. Many technological advancements radically modified machines over time, due to researchers and scientists that worked tirelessly to make things happen the way they are now. Machines, which were completely mechanically driven only a few years ago, have now begun to work automatically, thanks to programming, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other technologies. This progress piqued my curiosity, which evolved into a desire to pursue Mechanical Engineering as a bachelor’s degree.
