Ashish Cherian, a coding celebrity with his achievements a great news. At present working with Dorai Thodla at iMorph. Not that alone, he is a 4th year Computer Science with IBM Cloud Computing Specialization student at Hindustan Institute of Technology and Science. Unlike how the course’s name is Ashish’s Coding Love Story is short but amazeballs.

He is young, just 21, he is proactive 24×7, he is a wonderfully focused multitasker, you should read more to know this young Cherian in detail. Part of this Instagram-interview happened at a higher altitude, he was on a flight! We feel, coding is complicated, he too at times, but only till you be acquainted with both. A busy guy who juggles work and study and shuttles from home, college and work, so his travel time became his Interview Time for F.A.R.T.


Coding genius, not too well, there are far more talented people that I know, some of them my juniors. Yeah, well it’s nice to have your parents and relatives gang-up on you and say, “We didn’t know you were this good”.

4th Rank at Codeforces Competition 2016 is one among the achievements’ list of this genius coder. Codeforces is a website that hosts competitive programming contests, participated equally by top-notch programmers and those interested in hastening their careers.


Not really, I was into competitive programming from school. But yes a competition changed my life- Topcoder Competition held at our college, where I came first and caught the eye of Dorai, my current mentor.

Since acquiring first place for the competition, he started working for the companies and developing codes. Some essential flash backs of the Chhattisgarh born coder, which can motivate any young kid striving to be one.


Ashish Mistry, a hacking instructor, my mentor in class 9 and 10. I liked computers but was never good at it. He kept encouraging me even when I scored 15 or 20 on 100. One day I was told, I would never be a hacker till I learned programming and that I would remain a script kiddie using tools built by others. That really hit me. 15 became 60 and finally 99 in my class 10 boards.

The good grades and ranks he has been achieving doesn’t make him a serious geek, he proves with the next answer.


– If not this I would be into hacking. At school, it was fun to show my classmates their previous day’s chat log the next day. But what I do now brings me joy, my interest has changed from hacking people to helping people.


The lack of skill is a reason why our engineers are not getting a job. A piece of advice is, work on projects, work with companies. Get the job skills that are in demand. The crux of being an engineer is building solutions. At the end of four years that’s the least expected from an engineer. First two years of college devote to learning, hackathons, and building fun software. Devote the last two to implement whatever you have learnt while working for a company and chill-out.

Ashish has a blog where any could find interesting articles shared by the younger coder for the people out there wishing to be a code developer. To the Cheery Coder, “May God Bless you with many more cracking Coding years ahead”.
