Every blog has one not-so-interesting story and many lame posts.

Hello, there!

First off, let me congratulate you for losing your way to the ‘about’ page. Not sure why you would browse further and have a look at the below paragraphs, but I leave it to your good judgment.

I am Prashanth Krishnamurthy, and I code a bit. This blog carries a few learnings, more than enough failures, and other stuff that I wished I knew earlier.

Along with web development using Javascript I dabble in Laravel, .NET, mobile apps, and static sites. I have a YouTube channel on web development that has a tendency to go into hibernation.

I run a small company called Pragital and am based out of Bangalore, India. I have worked for Fortune 100 companies in enterprisey stuff in the past. I lead a second life building out things on platforms like salesforce.com, Zoho and more.


techformist is built on Hugo using the beautiful Minimo theme by Munif Tanjim.

Before you ask (would you have?): I did not use everyone’s favourite language of the day Javascript.

  1. Keep everything simple with low build times. I stand by this although I am not sure how this will matter for day-to-day usage and <10k posts
  2. Use at least something non-JS
  3. SPA/PWA and offline availability are not requirements for this blog
