About

Hi, I'm Aalap Patel.
I'm currently a third year computer science student at The University of Texas at Austin passionate about full stack development. My projects range anywhere from simple websites designed for clients to full production iOS apps available on the App Store, and I love learning new technologies to gain insights in terms of how software can be truly optimized and best suited for large scale usage and the day to day lives of customers. I'm also a seasoned hackathon participant and have been awarded in competitive settings for my innovations.
