About me

I am Sourav from Kolkata, India. I am developer and Devops. By education I am an IT engineer. In my free time I like to make new things and think of new ideas to make the world a better place.

I got my first computer in 2009 though I did not do much with it except for web browsing and playing games. In the year 2011, I got introduced to GNU/Linux and got to know the free software philosophy, after that I never looked back. Ubuntu and Fedora became my primary OS.

From the year 2012 I got into programming. I started with C language. for a year I concentrated mostly on it. Though at times I got to know python and perl. It was 2013 when one of my seniors guided me to Java. I find it cool. I did two three projects. In April of 2014 I made a project with JSP, it was a simple banking application I took it to my mentor he said it was good. Later he asked me to try Ruby on Rails and that changed my direction. I got into Ruby and Rails and I did couple of projects with it. I have also learnt Golang.
