What I Do

I like to do a number of things. From calculating tiny particle's charge to controlling a supercomputer. I do not have any speciality as I do anything I like and my choice changes day to day. But there are few type of things I always been doing for last one decay so I guess these are my specialities.

  • I Programming

    I code in lots of languages, from assembly language to the smartest language. I write code from passion. If I like the problem, I develop the algorithm for it and code for it. You can not make me code unless I don't like the problem or the problem is challenging. I love to solve programming problems too. My ways of coding or thinking is slightly different from others. You are welcome to hit me up with any programming related thoughts or problems. If I am free and like your thoughts I will definately reply you.

  • I Author Books and Blogs

    Over the last 5 years I have been writing on various types of things. From electronics to programming I write. I whave written a number of books on programming languages, microcontrollers, circuits, algorithms, new technologies etc. You can find my works in Amazon or eBay. I have written a number of blogs on programming too. I like new technologies. If you come across to any new thing you would like to learn and want me to write easily for you you can ping me. I would love to learn that and write. I write things when I'm free and I never write if I'm forced. To me writing is just a flow of river, no one can control it. It will come automatically.

  • I develop software

    Yes, I do develope software for living. I design a system and develop software for it. I have worked with medical systems, stock management systems, banking system, robotics and lots of other new technologies. I develop software as per the problem arises and I solve it by the developing the software. A good number of famous companies are currently using my software. I have been always overwhelmed when I see a creation of mine is being loved and utilized in daily basis.

  • I design products

    I design products. I also set criterias for the marketing of the product and goal of sell. I have developed the product ideas of a number of tech products related to medical and computer hardware. I can choose the target users and find out the best possible business model for the targeted people. I design both the hardware and software of a product. I lead team if the product is big. I am always ready to work with something new that no one has ever thought of.

  • I solve problems

    When I am free (rare case lol), I like to solve problems. Any type of problems! From politics to education or any funny ideas. I find an instant solution to any kind of problem. When you feel something is messy in your ways or you want to solve any kind of problem you can mail me with details. I'm I like the problem and feel the importance of solving I'll surely email you back. I have a list of fields where I like to work. But you can send me any type of problems. I would love to read them.

  • I learn Languages

    Other than programming languages, I love to learn human languages too. I learned a good number of human languages. Currently I am learning Spanish. If you speak Spanish, you can hit me up to have a good conversation about anything :)
