About me

Hi! I'm Aman Mittal, a Software Developer, currently working as an independent contract developer. I have a background in Computer Science (Bachelor of Technology) and since 2017 I've been working as a professional with various web and mobile technologies such as Node.js, React, React Native and Expo.

I am also keen about contributing in open-source . Back in 2018 I made my first open-source contribution by writing a Twitter Bot (the original one) in Node.js for freeCodeCamp and #100DaysOfCode campaign which in recent years has gained a lot of attention (90k+ followers) among people who are getting into web development.

Over the years I've made some contributions to some projects and organizations such as Node.js, Gatsbyjs and freeCodeCamp both as a contributor and maintainer. In past, I've been awarded among Top 200 Open Source Contributors by freeCodeCamp.org in 2018.
