Deepak Sarda photoThat's me on the left. That photo is a few years old but people say I still look the same so that's still me.

I grew up in Hyderabad, spent four years in Chennai for my undergraduate degree & then came to Singapore for a post-graduate degree in 2003. I've been living here ever since. I've travelled a bit in the past few years and there's some evidence of that on Flickr.

My day job is developing Equities trading systems at Citibank. It involves some multi-threaded programming, messaging, database wrangling, bits of Linux but is mostly about doing basic arithmetic in Java. I have a résumé here and a profile on LinkedIn which have more details on what I do now & what I've done in the past.

In my free time, I like dabbling in web stuff and lately, Android development. You can see some of my personal projects listed here. I also write a blog and occasionally share interesting links from around the web.

I started in 2003 with a blog and a photo gallery. Over the years, I wrote several home-rolled solutions to scratch different itches and it became a bit of a sprawling, un-maintainable mess. In mid-2010, I figured it was time to do some long overdue spring-cleaning and decided to re-do the whole site.

Today, this site is powered by Django with heavily modified versions of some stock and some third-party Django apps. The code is still in flux & I keep working on it on and off — adding features, cleaning up rough-edges, etc.

The site's design is based on the Simplification theme by Bill Israel. The icons on the home page are from the Social Network Icon Pack by Rogie King.
