Let’s start a blog

I have been programming since I was in school. It was kind of a “love at first sight” for me. Over the years, web development became a personal favourite of mine among some other things.

At the time of writing this post, I work as a software engineer at InVideo. My current tasks include improving the performance of our Angular app using lazy-loading and fix some major browser incompatibilities.

I also have to write a video conversion program in Python to be deployed on AWS Lambda. FFMPEG, AWS Lambda, running terminal commands in Python, all of this is completely new to me. Challenge accepted.

Freelance as a web developer and designer (work), some graphic designing gigs here and there. I once photoshopped hair from an old pic of an acquaintance onto his recent pic. He needed it for some official or legal documents.

In my personal time, I work on my own ideas. A few months back I created a Twitter bot in node.js, deployed it on Heroku. I also run an e-commerce search engine and price comparison platform called GetDeals. Mobile apps for the same are coming soon.

Coming back to the point, the purpose of this blog is to record everything: all the learnings, projects and research to refer in the future. I don’t want to be Googling around for the same things again, nope.

Maybe, I might also post some non-programming stuff. I am trying to give time to my other interests and passions like travel and video editing as well. I don’t know yet. Let’s see how this goes.

Till then, stay curious. This will be fun :-)
