Founder of a Ruby on Rails consultancy, 18 years of full-stack development in multiple languages
Howdy! If you work with me, you'll find that I'm patient, a good listener, and am great at tracking down annoying bugs. I used to ran one of the largest Ruby on Rails shops in the world. I started as a Rails Engineer, shot up the ranks, and eventually ran the company as Partner and de-facto CEO. Before and after, I've worked as a freelance full-stack developer in a wide variety of languages. I fell in love with programming in 1997 and have been loving it ever since.

Members are elected based on contributions to the Python language / community / ecosystem. Creator of xtopdf, a Python toolkit for PDF creation, used by Packt Publishing (UK), Software Freedom Law Center (US), and ESRI (NL), among others. xtopdf can convert many input formats to PDF for business reports, and can also create PDF e-books from text or XML. I add support for more input formats to it once in a while. Good online overview of xtopdf (links in slides give more info): http://slides.com/vasudevram/xtopdf xtopdf project on Bitbucket: https://bitbucket.org/vasudevram/xtopdf Independent developer, consultant, trainer with many years experience in a variety of technologies. Worked for leading American and Indian product and project software companies, both big and small, earlier - Veritas Software (now Symantec) and Infosys Technologies among them. Python, C, SQL, Ruby (not recent), databases, Linux and open source technologies are some key strengths, built over many years of real-life projects. Working on D (DLang) too. PDF generation in Python is an area of specialization; I wrote a product for it, xtopdf, which is used by some organizations in the US, UK and NL ,among others. Can help with automated PDF generation and PDF text extraction, having done some work on both areas. Published author of technical articles on IBM developerWorks, Packt Publishing site, and Linux For You magazine. Article for IBM developerWorks, "Developing a Linux command-line utility" (in C), got an average 4-star rating (out of max. 5) over many reviews. Some companies (e.g. Tellytopia, one of my clients, acquired by Concurrent Systems) have used it as a guide to create production Linux command-line utilities. See: http://jugad2.blogspot.in/2014/09/my-ibm-developerworks-article.html - about the artlcie, and a link to it, and: http://jugad2.blogspot.in/2014/10/print-selected-text-pages-to-pdf-with.html - example of using the utility with my xtopdf toolkit to perform a real-life task. I can help with command-line utility development in C / D / Python / Ruby (on UNIX / Linux / Windows).

Senior Software Engineer at Google
Senior Software Engineer at Google Inc. in Search working on the backend serving infrastructure for Knowledge Graph, a massive database of millions of real-world things and billions of connections between them, which is used to power "cards" that summarize information about those things (such as when searching for famous books, movies,TV shows, music albums, celebrities, politicians, places, etc.). In addition to working at Google during the day, I also moonlight as a tutor and mentor. Answering programming questions is a passion of mine, as can be seen from my StackOverflow profile (where I am in the top 0.3% by reputation)
Me? A Passionate Software Engineer
I love cutting edge C++11, C++14, and hopefully, C++17... I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I love Life, Music, Robotics, Aeronautics, Systems Engineering, Software development and anything written in C++! I read the ISO C++ standard documents for fun. I love writing maintainable, elegant and high performance code. I am here to give my time, and extend a more personalized service that what is obtainable on Stackoverflow.
Let me help solve your toughest problems.
I pride myself on my ability to write solid, well documented and fully tested software. With the projects that I have worked on, my software has not only needed to hold up to use by its users, it has also needed to be able to withstand scrutiny in court. As a result, I take writing quality code very seriously. Over the last few years I have worked on creating a platform to revolutionize the way that investigators (of all kinds) explore unstructured data, primarily text documents. I did this by taking advantage of the latest technologies and techniques in information retrieval and natural language processing. I also created a simple yet powerful language that allows investigators to ask deeper questions of the data. The end result of all of that effort is a system that allowed a forensic accounting team, of just two people, to go through a collection of over 500,000 documents and find emails that allowed them to receive $4,000,000 in damages for their client. The original target was only $250,000.
Professional Computer Scientist with a passion for creating applications
I hold a Masters of Science in Computer Science and have a background in tutoring and teaching. I am passionate about coding and love to solve puzzles of all sorts. I have expertise in 3D graphics (particularly scientific data visualizations), high performance computing (with a focus in parallel computing) and artificial intelligance (mostly game-playing). In addition to programming, I like to help others in anyway I can. If I can help people program, that is the best of both worlds.
