Despite all resistance, I'm a programmer. It started with endless hours of torture reading DATA statements to my father as he typed them into our TRS-80. ARRRGHHH!!
This moved to an actual interest once I learned how to code a little, then in college I said "there is no way I'm living my life in front of a stupid computer screen" so I quit.
Four years later, tired of managing a restaurant, and partying til 4-5 in the morning I sought more structure. And got a job programming. It serves me well and here I am.
Vikram is a 20-something bloke working in Madras (aka Chennai), India. Vikram was born in Madras, brought up in Coimbatore, and is now back in Madras. He loves listening to music, reading and watching cricket. He hates cats.
Vikram joined CP way back in 2002 when he was in college and had papers on Windows programming. In his past lives, he languished around, roaming the wilderness of Solaris, eventually moving on to writing software for managing ATMs in .NET. He now works as a Business Analyst who dabbles in SQL for an investment bank, working with applications for structured products.
He "loves everyone" for whatever that is worth. And he rather makes a big deal out of the fact that he's ambidextrous....
