Technology Team

Project Description

The Technology team spans all of CLIx, working closely with the Curriculum and Production teams on the education technology used in the curriculum, with the Implementation teams on the infrastructure in schools, with the website team for Communications and outreach and with the Research team to support data acquisition and analysis. Technology plays a supporting role in the active and experiential learning experiences being developed by CLIx.

Satej Shende

Technology Manager, Centre of Excellence in Teacher Education, TISS

I  contribute to and coordinate  curriculum development and on- field training activities  for FTs, teachers and students. I help  develop and test the i2C course platform and school server and deploying  these in school labs by coordinating with and supporting field technologists. As a part of Gnowledge Lab, HBCSE, I am exploring the  value of open source technology for education and its use in achieving learning competencies. I also develop learning studio images, which are  customised Linux  OS images containing educational applications. I strongly believe that the education process should  evolve with time and that technology will  play a great role in it.
Past experience: Software developer, 2.5 years, PI Techniques.

      Software Developer UI/UX, Centre of Excellence in Teacher Education, TISS

      As a Software Developer UI/UX at CLIx, I am responsible for all the CLIx website visuals and display of design the audience actually interacts with. Since the last 4 years I have been working on JavaScript. I am also involved in writing  the most basic features to most advance with the chaos of cross-browser war. Learning coding by myself through online resources moved my interest to Edtech. Currently I am working on the React framework.

      Sr. Software Backend Developer, Centre of Excellence in Teacher Education, TISS

      I am a Software Developer with 6+ years of experience in application design and development. I am into CLIx as I am interested in the technologies it demands for my role. Previously, I worked with Infosys(Hyd) and Mastek(Mumbai) as a SE and SSE. My experience till now in the industry has been in developing a module within a project on the contrary CLIx has given me an opportunity to learn and play different roles. I have been involved in the development and maintenance of the key platforms. I got the opportunity to handle interns who joined our team. Also have been involved in Data processing and metric extraction along with the research team which gave me exposure to different sets of technology.

        I joined CLIx as system administrator in 2018. My past experience includes working on different devops related technologies like Docker, Kubernetes, Cloud Platforms and virtual machines. At CLIx, in contrast to my previous stack, working on physical servers has been a good learning experience . As my role speaks, I am into server handling (instance setup, deployments, updations and  troubleshooting) and writing shell scripts for automation of redundant work.
