Dipendu Chanda

Hello you! đź‘‹

I’m a tech professional trying to figure life out holistically. What I do end up figuring out, I try to share

In terms of experience, I have tasted and sometimes dived deep into all data stages. From Software Development, Admin, Data Engineering, Business Intelligence to Data Science for Product, Clients to Customers; from FAANG to Startups. Happy to talk about the differences!

“The world is one big data problem, and if truly loving data is wrong, I don’t want to be right.”

Hello! I'm Dipendu

"You can Depend on Me!"

As a skilled and experienced professional in the Data world, I know how much hard work and careful thought it takes to design a system & derive valuable insights for a successful business. This site is my way of documenting everything I’ve done, everything I’ve learned and how I see myself developing in the future. If you’d like to learn more about me, browse through the site. If you see something you like, or you want to discuss what I can do for you, feel free to drop me a line.

EXPERTISE

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) on large datasets (Big Data) using cloud platforms.

Preston Lander, AI Product Lead at Meta

Dipendu was a developer on my project team. His positive energy, creativity, and determination was a difference maker for team morale and our output as a whole. Loved having Dipendu on board and can highly recommend him.

Sriram, AI Head at Deloitte

It was a pleasure working with you Dipendu. Amazing attitude that you have. Always admired your positive mindset and enthu to learn new stuff. Attention to details and a Go-getter. Would love to work with you again anytime. All the very best.

Pat Murray, Director at American Airlines

Dipendu came to American Airlines with the perfect energy and skillset we needed to help us launch our business intelligence initiatives. During his tenure, working essentially on his own with very little direction, he was able to dig deep into understanding our needs & developed tools to help us better understand our Mechanic training qualification status. He immediately became part of our family. It was sad to see him go and hope we are able to bring him back someday.

Pat has been a great mentor of mine. He’s now assisting with his wife’s pie shop and heading to the mountains!
