Interview with Gourav Goyal

My name is Gourav Goyal and I'm a software engineer by profession. Now, I'm working on a few ideas and looking to start my own startup.

What is your development background?

 I'm a full-stack software developer with 6 years of experience. I've worked with startups as well as big tech companies. 

What browser extensions do you use right now, including yours?

I've built 2 browser extensions which I use on a regulars basis.

Other extensions:

  • Ublock Origin ad blocker
  • Trocker: email tracking blocker
  • Cookie notice blocker
  • Google dictionary
  • Github hovercard
  • Octotree - GitHub code tree
  • Bitwarden
  • Checker Plus for Gmail
  • OneTab
  • vBookmarks

What IDE / toolset do you prefer to use for full-stack development?

VSCode but sometimes Sublime Text for quick editing.

What languages or useful frameworks have you learned in recent years?

 I've written code and built projects in C++, C#, Python, Java, Node, and JavaScript. Now, I write code in JavaScript (Typescript) and React. NodeJS has become quite mature for full-stack development in recent years.

What are the most exciting / inspiring things in building new products for you?

Sometimes I build products because I need them for myself and couldn't find any alternatives. Sometimes, I build because I think it would be useful for others. I get excited when other people find my products useful. It's a great feeling when you have built something that is being used by thousands of people. This inspires me to build more.
