Hariharan leapt into the field of programming after being introduced to C in his second year at college. A fan of basketball and chess, the logical thought process behind programming and the concepts of linking real principles onto a concrete platform pushed him deep into this field. On finishing his bachelor's majoring in Electrical and Electronics engineering with Soft Computing, Numerical Analysis and Biomedical Engineering as minor, he did a six month stint at India's second largest IT company- Infosys Technologies. He left Infosys armed with strong concepts of SDL Cycles and process development, gained domain knowledge in Java and had explored Visual basic, C++, C# and kept his mind open for more. Currently working in a startup as the product designer, his arsenal of technologies has doubled to accommodate the challenges his job demands.
Off work, he enjoys learning new languages (non-programming) and is currently teaching himself German and Spanish. He also enjoys travelling around and exploring new ideas, places and relationships.

Currently attempting to extend his education to post graduation.

have 5+ years of experience working as a software developer. My main area is the .NET platform and C# is my main language.
I am an experienced consultant and has worked both as an on-site consultant aswell as an in-house developer. Apart from developing software I have also been involved with training of end users, writing documentation, test and 3rd line support.

I have working with projects in several different industries such as Oil/Gas, Nuclear Power ,Telecoms, Defense and Life Science. Working in serveal different fields have given me broad technical experience
and understanding of the demands within the different fields. My work experience ranges from developing industrial automation systems ,realtime systems, traceability systems to web based SMS payment portals.

Most of my experience is on the .NET platform but I have also worked with C++ and Java. With databases I have worked mostly with Microsoft Sql server and Oracle but I also have good knowledge of open source databases such as MySql and MariaDB
Within Web development have worked mostly with the ASP.NET MVC architecture. I have worked mainly with backend development in C# but have also been working with frontend using Jquery, HTML5 and CSS. I have also been doing a project developing an Android app for a homeautomation system using Android Studio.

I have a great interest in learning new technologies and I am a fast learner. Javascript is a area of focus right now and technologies such as asynchronous serverside JavaScript(Nodejs), realtime web applications with websockets(socket.io) and peer2peer based videostreaming wirh webrtc are currently taking a lot of my sparetime.
Other areas of interest are php based cms systems such as Wordpress and being a Google fan software development on the Android platform is a must. Currently i am exploring the Android Wear SDK. Love that Android Studio finally came.
