/who

A so called Software Engineer, a little bit geeky, defintely not nerdy, working with the ColdFusion team at Adobe. When I’m not working, I love to go cycling (Trek 3700) at dawn - Covered 87.17 kms, at an average of 16.87 kmph in the last 30 days, travel, explore nature (the most recent clicks exist at Flickr) through the lens (Canon 60D + 50mm + 18-55mm + 55-250mm) or dab on the keyboard (The legacy, Yamaha PSR-18) with minimal knowledge I’ve gained - and continue to gain - from notes/articles/videos scattered across the internet. Between all of the above, I jump in front of the screen often to do what I love most – code.

I tend to ensure Facebook doesn't speak much of me. A good way to "touch base" (yeah, that word always amuses me) would be at my
blog or twitter

/what

Here is a snapshot of my journey through technology. I started off building C# - .NET Windows Applications while in college, turning all ideas that came into my mind into applications and some of them made it to sites like Download.com and ZNet. dWise Solutions later offered me a chance to work with them. At my stint here, had opportunities to explore Android development (I built on 1.5 Cupcake back then), C# - .NET, PHP, Javascript, Adobe AIR, Adobe Flex, ActionScript and MXML. Post that, I moved on to Adobe as a Flash Platform Evangelist, and had an opportunity to work with some amazing people, speak at some top notch conferences, and got to know a ton of people from the Flash Community. Later moved on to work with the Flash Runtime Engineering Team, got the ACE Flex Certification, got to work on the ground breaking Stage3D and had a sneak peek into OpenGL and assembly language – AGAL. Next came the stint with the ColdFusion Engineering Team, with insights into the server side of things, with CFML and numerous permutations of connectors, webservers and server OSs. Python, Javascipt and scripting caught hold of me, and the ease and simplicity of the languages impress me. I currently do Devops with Docker, Cloud, AWS, and the like, and am sold to the idea of Internet of Things, and fish some time trying to hack around with Raspberry Pi and a few sensors. You can find a little bit of code I've written at Bitbucket.

Here are a couple of services I use to keep track of the code I write, Wakatime - shows a neat log of all the code, across languages, that I'm writing right now, and Statosphere shows a BitBucket commit distribution as a heatmap.

Also helped build the infra for Veloscope, a sports media collective.
