I’m Prateek Srivastava. Welcome to Public Void.
I started my blog, Public Void in 2014. Initially I used it to write about open source projects and Android, but I've expanded to writing about any topics I find interesting.
You might know me online as f2prateek if we met through software, or prakteekal if we met through gaming.
I grew up in Mumbai, studied in Edmonton, worked in San Francisco, and settled in Vancouver.
I’ve worked on all kinds of software, from mobile libraries to personal web apps to enterprise backends. I am currently at Stripe where I help keep our infrastructure spend in check. Before this, I was at Segment (acquired Twilio), where I worked on a range of projects, from Connections to Protocols.
