About me

Learning Pottery in Dharamshala, India

Gurpreet Luthra

As Head of Product Practice at Tavisca in Pune, I help instill a culture of excellence in Product design and development. Tavisca (and its parent company Connexions) is in the business of Customer Loyalty & Engagement, with a focus towards Platform-as-a-Product for the Travel domain.

Prior to this I was with ThoughtWorks for 7 years. At ThoughtWorks, as a software craftsman and technical consultant I helped teams and organisations apply principles of Continuous Delivery and Extreme Programming (XP) to solve problems and delight customers.

Earlier, I was also the Product Manager & Community Lead for Bahmni - an Open Source Hospital Management system created by ThoughtWorks. In this role, I worked towards helping shape the roadmap for Bahmni and evangelising Open Source software for humanitarian purposes.

Within ThoughtWorks I have worked on large-scale Web projects in Travel, Health, Retail and Consumer Electronics domains. I am passionate about product development, tech writing, teaching and using technology for social good.

Some folks say that I do have a rather curious knack to make connections between the programming world and the one we physically inhabit. I think they might be right.

I also enjoy drawing comics on life, health and work. Check them out on my instagram page here: insta.g9.
