Hi! My name is Nikhil.
I am software engineer who currently focuses on web development. My interests include information security, web development, data analysis, unix systems and open source software to name a few.
Currently, I work as a full stack developer at HMI Tech. Previously, I was taking care of security and IT support at Mapbox for 7 different time zones. Before moving to Security and IT at Mapbox, I fell in love with maps and numbers there. I was a geospatial data analyst at Mapbox leading the end user’s feedback pipeline, doing data analysis and maps. This involved data analysis while working with the engineering teams, sales, business and marketing team. My professional career started at Tech Mahindra as a manual tester of network equipments (Think big Huawei and Cisco network equipments which fills a whole room).
What’s does the name “unsung novelty” mean?
We humans are all unique. People with a lot of unique characteristics, perspectives, skills or thoughts. But we also have a lot in common. Common things helps us humans work together. While our unique characteristics sets us apart. The name “unsung novelty” comes from the thought of sharing my own unique thoughts with people who I have a lot of common things with.
I am always open to to new challenges. Contact me through Email.

Cool folks with website but inactive/no blog
About this website
Checkout the license page.
The theme used is called “Brahma”. It was created by me specifically for this website. But my friend ArkArjun started using it as well thereby becoming my only “stakeholder”.
This website uses Hugo bundled with Brahma Theme created by me. Netlify is behind the scenes.
Privacy shouldn’t be a premium feature. So I made sure I have only used a basic site analytics which is Open Source and privacy friendly called Goat counter. It is minimal and privacy friendly enough to be GDPR friendly without the need for a GDPR consent notice to be shown to the user as far as I understand. The only reason for analytics to be present in this website is to make sure I am not sharing into the void. Not to get the accurate number of folks visiting the website.
While I am not digging deeply into GDPR anytime soon since this is a small personal website, if you think I am violating GDPR somehow, do write to me at
unsungnovelty at pm dot me. Do expect a delay in response. But I will try to find a solution for your query.
