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 Upto Lately…

  • Prey — Book Review
    Prey is a cautionary tale of scientific misadventures. The novel narrates the story of a nanotechnology and artificial intelligence experiment gone horribly wrong.
  • Sugar-coated false promises
    Is it so hard for people to see what lies behind the trojan horse of a personal loan? I wonder…
  • The reading speed conundrum
    I am not into speed reading nor do I aspire to be. But I do aspire to be consistent with my reading, comprehend more, take lots of notes, and read above my level every now and then.
  • Merge commit vs. squash commit in git
    It’s an endless debate. Like spaces vs. tabs. emacs vs. vim. Windows vs. Mac. Before joining Automattic, creating a merge commit was the only way I would close PRs.
  • The Christmas Pig — Book Review
    The tale of a decent, mild-mannered little boy who loses his favorite toy (on a Christmas eve!) during a time when he’s still coping with the separation of his parents.
