Dinesh Chugtai is a software engineer , and a main character in HBO's Silicon Valley.
Dinesh lives and works in the Hacker Hostel with Richard, Big Head, and Gilfoyle. He possesses a dry wit and skills at writing code, particularly Java. Dinesh often finds himself sparring with Gilfoyle.
He is originally from Pakistan but is a US citizen, unlike Gilfoyle. He claims it took him five years to get US citizenship and was asked about Al-Qaeda "like 14 times."
Single but wishful.
" I was already happy you got punched in the face, but now I’m super happy!"
"I know Gilfoyle probably came in here and puked out a bunch of tech specs, three-fourths of which are total horse shit. Did he bring up the Iranian revolution thing? Yeah, those words mean nothing. But here's a fact, I'm the only one of these clowns that can code in Java and I write sleek performant low-overhead Scala code with higher order functions that will run on anything. Period. End of sentence."
