Hey there, reader! I'm currently working at Goldman Sachs as a full time Analyst. I am a 2020 CS graduate from IIT Bhubaneswar (the COVID batch). I like automating things on my Raspi 4B and seldom also make tutorials about it. I like self hosting services, collecting movies and shows. I can't stop listening to latin music and have a fixation on anything Spanish. I like distributed systems, cloud computing, operating systems, basically Systems in a broad sense.
Systems Research: Setting up a hackintosh and using every other linux distro were big things in my childhood, and shaped into my current interest in Cloud platforms. My internship at MPI-SWS in Systems research group, solidified my interest in this area of micro-vms. The Firecracker and the Golem projects, written in Rust, are of a particular interest to me.
RaspberryPi: Configuring a personal server has been amazing. My setup consists of 10-15 containers for a fully automatic home media server (Plex, Sonarr for starters) with a telegram request & update bot. I have been experimenting with FUSE for efficiently mounting Gdrive directly to the containers. For when I am away, I started using TailScale for NAT traversal.
Coding: Python is my choice for general programming and C++ for competitive coding. I use Rust for hobby coding (challenging in its own way 😆) and Java at my job. With my amazing teams, I won at SIH and Inter IIT Tech Meets. We reached ACM ICPC Regionals two times and won several local contests.
Cinephile: I don't regret watching around 600 movies and 60 shows. Thave helped in learning english to a certain extent. Having watched so many, I started taking pride in my collection and setup automatic tracking to trakt as well. After a lot of pursuation from my friends, I turned weeb. If I had to, would pick Attack on Titan as the best anime / show ever made.
EE: Everything else I do is a pretty much binge-watching Youtube. I have a youtube channel myself related to computer stuff, but rarely upload. I am working on two journal papers which were output of my bachelors thesis work. Acadamics and assignments cover pretty much the rest.
