Introduction & Background

Having worked for six and a half years in a leading tech consultancy firm, I am now working as a Senior Software Engineer in an investment management start-up based in London. I have primarily been working with JVM based fun (Java, Groovy, Grails) but love to get involved with any technology (Just check out my projects listed). I am also one of the co-founders of NerdAbility and helped make this fine site you are using!

Open Source Contribution

I have spent considerable time working on side projects and OSS projects (as can be seen from my list of GitHub, BitBucket, Google Code repositories!) - The projects range from just playing around with technologies to full blown projects that are ready to be used. Some highlights of my OSS projects are: Spring-Social-Geeklist - I am lead developer and creator of the Spring-Social implementation of the Geeklist API. The project has been accepted into Spring-Social's community lead APIs and is linked from the Spring website. Flutterby - An OSS Enterprise Social Project Management tool - more details at about all the awesome features (todos, tickets, personal status, heirarchical team structures, private messages, Q'n'A)
