Abhinav Asthana is an experienced developer and entrepreneur. He wrote the first free Postman app in 2012 when he first began working with APIs because he realized that *hated* cURL. He envisioned a simple client for HTTP requests to help him get beyond simple GET and POST requests and into the complexity of real-world API development. Postman is now used by 7 million developers across more than 300,000 companies worldwide. He holds a B.E. (with honors) from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani.
