“Sixteen years later, I had to stop by Brigade Road on my way back home,” he said in a post on X (formerly Twitter).

Thomas Dohmke, who was in India this week, went on to quote Mahatma Gandhi and added that he is leaving the country “more optimistic than ever” of how human progress can be accelerated when one embraces new frontiers of technology.

“I dearly love this country, a new home away from home. I promise, I’ll be back soon,” he said.

Take a look at the Github CEO's post on X:

Dohmke had earlier shared a nostalgic throwback photo from Brigade Road from when he visited India back in 2008.

“Although this is my first visit as GitHub CEO in India, this is not my first time here. I love this country. This is me in 2008, in Bengaluru — I haven’t aged at all,” he said in a post on X on June 5, sharing a photo of his younger self on Brigade Road.

Brigade Road, located in central Bengaluru has been a party and shopping hub in the city for ages and is popular among youngsters and college-goers.

The Seattle-based Github CEO on Tuesday addressed a company event in Bengaluru.

Dohmke said that India’s burgeoning developer community, combined with the newfound possibilities of AI, will not only accelerate digital transformation but will drive immense human and economic progress for India.

Before joining Github, Dohmke co-founded HockeyApp which was acquired by Microsoft in 2014. He took over as Github's CEO in late 2021.

He holds a PhD in mechanical engineering from University of Glasgow, United Kingdom.
