I graduated in May after which I went back home to India for a while. I spent two months doing pretty much nothing, which I must say, was awesome. I spent time with my family, hung out with friends, read books, watched some movies, and lost two teeth (a result of which I lost 5 pounds yay!). I also spent some time with Akka, brushed up on my distributed systems knowledge and read one paper. Some of my loftier goals, which included learning Go, reading more than one paper, and open sourcing Gelato, were not achieved unfortunately. All in all though, it was a wonderful Summer.
I came back to the U.S. towards the end of July. I live in Mountain View with my awesome buddies Kevin, Onur, and Sam. I just want to say, I ❤ our house! I’m amazed that we found such a great place to live.
Oh, and if you’re wondering why I moved to Mountain View, it’s because I now work at LinkedIn! I’m a Software Engineer on the Service Infrastructure (SI) team at LinkedIn. As I’ve said earlier, my internship at LinkedIn was fantastic and it feels great to be back. Last Summer I worked on integrating the Play framework into LinkedIn’s existing infrastructure. As a member of the SI team I’m currently working on Rest.li (Rest.li on GitHub. This is also the first open source project I’ve contributed to).
Super excited to see what the future holds 🙂
