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…

  • Range — Book Review
    Being a generalist myself, I was intrigued by the book’s title when I stumbled on it during my self-motivated research on the generalist vs. specialist debate.
  • Fahrenheit 451 — Book Review
    I had a hard time adapting to the style and tone. It appeared to me that the author churned out the pages in a fit of passion in a single sitting.
  • The Arch Linux experiment
    For the unaware, Arch follows a strictly do-it-yourself philosophy. That means, you have to install, configure, and set it up all by yourself- no cheat codes and no GUIs.
  • The Millionaire Fastlane — Book Review
    The author’s key argument is that money earned in exchange for time is not wealth (as in a job). The only way to earn wealth and get rich is to remove time from the equation (as in business or investment)
  • Red Roulette — Book Review
    Red Roulette is a tell-all story of a nouveau riche Chinese millionaire about how he and his business partners had to navigate the immensely corrupt Chinese government to get things done.
