I like programming not for the technology aspect but more for how I can use it

  • to communicate the intent of the code easily
  • to decompose a problem into sub-problems beautifully
  • to create maintainable software
  • to design complex systems

Hence my interests lie in topics of:

  • Process Calculi( CSP)
  • TDD
  • Functional Programming( MIT Scheme, Scala)
  • Hadoop,Spark
  • DSL

Some books which have influenced me:

  • Refactoring book by Martin Fowler
  • Code Complete
  • Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs(SICP)
  • Growing Object Oriented Software via tests

People who inspire me:

  • Alan Kay
