I am Ganesan Rajagopal. I am a 32 year old Linux geek working in Bangalore, Karnataka, India. I am also a debian developer. This page is likely to remain quite static. So you may be interested in my blog at Blogger. It's quite likely that my blog will remain pretty static too but, heh, there's a better chance of it being somewhat up-to-date.
I was born in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu India. I did my higher secondary education in Shri Nehru Vidyalaya, Coimbatore. I graduated as a Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science from Government College of Technology, Coimbatore. After graduation, I worked for a year in Wipro Systems, Bangalore. Then I went on to do my Masters in Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. After my post graduation I joined Novell India. I was with Novell for over five years. After that I joined a storage startup called Andiamo Systems. Andiamo (which means "Let's go" in Italian) was acquired by Cisco Systems in 2003. So, I am currently working for Cisco Systems, Bangalore.
I am married. My wife is also from Coimbatore. She also works as a software developer in Philips, Bangalore. She's an Electrical Engineer; incidentally she's also from the same college as me. In case you're curious, no we didn't meet there :-). I graduated out of GCT, long before she joined there.
I am a Unix/Linux geek. I work in Network/Systems/Embedded Programming. I am also interested in different programming languages. My favourite is Python and my day job is mainly in C. But I am also fluent in shell scripting, C++, Java, Perl, Lua and Tcl. I also learning C# off and on. I actively follow many mailing lists - linux kernel mailing list, the debian developer's mailing list, the Python programming newsgroup, Linux bangalore technical and programming lists - to name a few. I more of a lurker, though I do actively participate in the Linux Bangalore mailing lists.
I am a gadget freak. My friends keep making fun of me about that. I own a Treo 600, a Dell Axim X30 and a Sharp Zaurus SL-6000, which I use fairly regularly. I also have an Visor Deluxe and a Treo 90 at home. Treo 90 happens to be my favourite but I don't carry it around these days.Ganesan Rajagopal
