Hello and Welcome to A Developer Diary
I am a diary without any real pages. I’ve been made with WordPress’s html pages & posts. I
share Abhisek’s experience with Software Development to the world of internet.
Even though I was officially hosted sometime around
mid of 2015, I was a dormant idea hidden in Abhisek’s mind for many years.
Abhisek’s wife, Saheli who
inspired him through her cooking blog named www.funloveandcooking.com. In case you are a foodie and want get taste of some delicious yummy recipe, don’t forget to visit her blog.
So that is all about me, however if you want to know more about Abhisek; here is a brief history of his journey towards computer science.
Middle School : I was crazy about creating
electronic gadgetsusing transistors, ICs, resistor, capacitor when I was around 1o years old. I had another friend who was also like me. We used to go for all the exhibition, competitions happening near our city. I did’t really understood at that time how a transistor really works, we used to follow the circuits diagram and make crazy gadgets.
First Computer : First time I saw the computer at school when I was 14. It was a first sight love with the
BBC Micro Computer, a tremendous excitement grew in me. Unfortunately it was the first and last day class before summer vacation. So I got as many as book possible from our district library and read all of them.
First Programming Language :
BASIC was the first programming language I started with.The
graphics library mainly attracted me, by the time I went to college I had developed tons of games & simulations.At that time computer lab was a very restricted area, however I was the only student allowed anytime of the day.
First Prize in Programming Language : I won several prizes during
District Computer Fare, however the book
Programming in C by Balaguruswamy had the most influence on me.I started learning C when I was in high school, this helped a lot since C was a compulsory subject in first year of engineering.
A Long Learing Curve : After high school when I was in college, the
Stroustrup's C++book helped a lot to build the foundation then Data Structure, Computer Architecture, Operating System, Automata Theory, Computer Graphics, Compiler Constructions … (fast forward the time) … Angular 2, Cloud Native, Big Data – started a never ending journey of a student life.
Deep Learning : In past decade I have worked on many different technologies (JS, JEE, Microservices, No-SQL etc). However, I always felt that the challenges start to evaporate after few months. So periodically I used to look out for learning something new, interesting and challenging. Finally, my search came to a closer when I discovered the world of Machine Learning & Deep Learning. This time I can see that I have a long road ahead and I am spending significant time mastering the subjects. As a result, recently my wife started complaining that every room in our apartment now looks like a study room !
