About Me

I’ve been passionate about computers since I got to work with one at the age of 12. Back in 1998, it fascinated me how a few keystrokes could produce template documents, images and you could play awesome, concept based video games. While I started with all of the basic and fun stuff, by the age of 14 I was storing my school work on floppy disks and shared it digitally with friends. By 16 I had chosen C,C++ as the optional subject at school and at 18 I decided to pursue my bachelors in engineering in a field that offered a sweet blend of electorincs and computer science – Instrumentation Technology. Got my first job in 2008 with one of the biggest IT services companies in the world – TCS and our client was America Online, got the opportunity to familiarize myself with many technologies and truly understand the power of data. We implemented many analytics projects that would produce actionable information for businesses to function and thrive. My interest in the field of Data Analytics has only grown manifold since then.

I am Good at

ETL Tools

Specialise in ETL tools, especially AbInitio. I bring a decade of experience building real-time and batch applications for customers across domains such as Banking and Finance, E-Commerce, Media and Entertainment.

Python

This is one of the newer skills that I've picked up. I enjoy solving coding challenges with python and have recently started making simple and fun games with it.

Data Warehousing

This is another area where I specialise, have clear understanding of data warehousing concepts having implemented them for various clients over the years.

Linux/Unix And Shell Scripting

Very comfortable with the Linux/Unix OS and shell scripting, have worked with various flavours of Linux and Unix my entire career. Feel right at home in front of the black box.

AWS

I am an ardent fan of this technology and I constantly learn and implement some of the core services. This website uses a bunch of AWS services. I also hold multiple AWS certifications.

SQL

SQL is another one of my strong points, it goes without saying that professionals in the data analytics field would be more than acquainted with the ever so useful structured query language.
