“Something ’bout the struggle so divine This sort of love is hard to define” Jay-Z (Nickels and Dimes)
I just finished watching the series finale of Game of Thrones (GoT) and it feels like the end of an era. I grew up watching the show these past 8 years. I still remember the day my ex-roommate, Gopi, suggested it to me for the very first time. I had just graduated and was actively […]
The UX around composing a blog post has changed significantly over the years. It has moved from pure text based posts to having image embeds, galleries, videos and cards from various websites such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube etc. The text editors are responsible for good UX and it’s great that they are evolving. This evolution […]
After 7 years, I’m back on WordPress. Lot of things have changed in 7 years. For starters, the prices have significantly gone down for hosting your server. Also, the UX of the WP mobile app is now so much better. The new blocks based text editor is very interesting. One of the primary reasons for […]
Being busy with travel, work and some other personal things, I totally forgot that on March 20th 2019, my blog completed its 10 years of existence. Personally, that’s a huge milestone for me. It feels good to have had my blog for 10 years. A lot has changed in the past 10 years and my […]
Happy New Year! 🎉 2018 has been a great year for me. Both, professionally and personally. I’ve managed to be very productive in 2018 and it has been a very humbling experience. 2017 was a particularly tough year for me. I was really sad, went through a lot and I wanted to pull myself back […]
I was checking out some photos on my iPhone the other day and I really liked how the Photos app organized my photos by location. It really adds a lot of context to my photos. In the past, I’ve used the map view to see where a particular photo was taken a ton of times, […]
I love Wearable Tech™. My love for wearable tech started off in May 2012 with the launch of Nike+ Fuel Band. It was an amazing product. I absolutely loved everything about it. The design, the display, the battery, the style and of course, the UX. The next year, Fitbit came up with a competing product […]
I like David Heinemeier Hansson (DHH) and Jason Fried’s style of writing. It’s very casual and often times funny. In the past, I’ve enjoyed reading their other books such as “Getting Real” and “Rework”. I was never really motivated enough to read their other book “Remote”. “Getting Real” changed the way I think about projects […]
Up until mid 2008, I had always been underweight. I used to be extremely lean and my focus back then was to gain weight. I wanted to look decent when I wore shirts and not look like someone hung a shirt on a coat hanger. To get a mental picture, I’m a little over 5’9” […]
A blog is a great place to post interesting, insightful and fun things. Or even boring things. It doesn’t really matter as long as you like doing it. I really enjoy reading my friends’ blogs. It has a different feel to it as opposed to reading a generalized feed on a social network. Typically, I […]
I love buying interesting domain names. I do that with the hope that one day, I end up using the domain name for one of my side projects or at least work on a side project after purchasing the domain name. Sometimes, I just think of an idea and come up with a good name […]
I first learned Go in 2014. I didn’t do anything with it after I learned the basics. After all the years, I even forgot the syntax and the basic concepts. This time, however, I wanted to make sure I properly learned Go and implemented something useful in Go. I’ve now been programming in Golang since […]
After waiting for 3 long years, I’ve finally acquired the domain 🎉 https://iam.mt 🎉. This is going to be my new blog URL moving forward. Thank you Malta!
Wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year! 🎉 Cheers!
I love building things for fun and lately I’ve been thinking about building a text editor. I’ve used a lot of text editors and IDEs in the past. Here’s the list in a chronological order: vi/vim: my very first code editor. Used it back in my earlier C/C++/Java days Dreamweaver: started using it once I […]
Innovation in today’s technology is mostly around Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its sub topics such as Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Processing (NLP). There is a primary focus on NLP and ML among all the tech companies. This is for a good reason. Tech companies are using NLP and ML in various aspects of […]
Exactly 2 years ago (Mar 22nd, 2015), on a Sunday afternoon, I wrote and open sourced Rearrange Tabs. I use it every single day. I find it pretty useful. The extension got featured on LifeHacker & Changelog 🎉 Here are a few interesting stats about the project: Active Users: 1000+ No. of Reviews on Chrome […]
