GLEXP

Working on GLEXP has really pushed us in a positive direction. Our idea was to put tablets with world class education content on them in front of kids in the communities we live in.

Open Electric Unicycle Expo in Shenzhen, China

I’ll be going back to Shen Zhen at the end of June 2017. I’ve been stopping there on my way between Bangalore and San Franscisco ever since my friends set up Constellation Space a few years ago.

Javascript Bootcamp

I believe this is an enjoyable and productive place to spend time. On the internet we get compared to software bootcamps, and that is what some of the people joining Jaaga Study expect. One of the differences between the environment here and a ‘bootcamp’ is…

The Singularity Festival of Learning

Sometimes I think about Jaaga Study as if it were a festival. Our theme and vibe is one of futuristic nomadism. We use all available technology to live lightly and fabulously on the ground. We have a strong culture of learning and sharing and enjoyment. There are many activities at the festival. There are screenings, and lightening talks, and study groups, and workshops, and competitions, and hackathons, and gaming sessions, and large interactive art works. The culture of the festival…
