Hey, what’s up?

I am a computer programmer and this cozy little place is what I call (online) home. I love creating software to solve my own problems and have a tendency to get infinitely attracted to any reasonably cool SDK, platform, or framework. As you will find by yourself, I write a lot about these in my blog and on Twitter.

Check out the links in the links menu above to know more about me. Or head over to one of these blog categories:

  • Coding & Tech 💻 – software development quirks and technologies that interest me
  • Tutorials 👨‍💻 – I tend to frequently share interesting things I’ve learned
  • Projects & Experiments 🧪 – yeah, I’m that guy who’s always doing something
  • Public Speaking 📢 – I love to occasionally take the mic and speak about (mostly tech) stuff I’m passionate about
  • Open-Source ♾ – this world wouldn’t be a better place without it
  • Literary Pursuits 📚 – books I’ve read and stories/poems I’ve written
  • Music 🎸🎹 – as a wanna-be guitarist and pianist, I share music that inspires me
  • Life & Thoughts 🧘‍♂️ – small chapters from my life, lessons learned and random thoughts

What I’ve been up to lately…

  • The meaning of words isn’t fixed
    The meaning of words isn’t fixed. It evolves. The faster we adapt, the more degrees of freedom we gain to express ourselves more clearly.
  • Junk food and junk content are robbing us of our potential
    Like junk food, ultra-processed junk content is highly addictive, adds zero value, and makes us mentally sick. It robs us of our true potential by luring us into giving away our most valuable asset – time.
