About Me

My name is Durwasa Chakraborty and I am currently working as a Software Engineer in MathWorks. I pursued my Masters in Computer Science with my concentration in Programming Languages and Data Science. I am extremely passionate about programming languages and their behaviors in different settings. Yet I don’t have a favorite programming language as I really like Python but at the same time I really appreciate the power of Haskell or Racket. I like to work on technologies that are close to the metal. At the same time I like to build toy projects and fiddle around Python, JavaScript. I am very passionate about open source development, programming design paradigms, application architecture and system designs. In the past I have done some competitive coding as well so I understand algorithms. I have worked with Computer Graphics, Information Retrieval and some basic web stuffs. I also have tried a plethora of environments but I couldn’t find the one IDE until I came to Emacs. So, I have tried vim, np++, emacs, neovim, sublime text, Intellij (huge fan) and VSCode. I usually code in Emacs these days but then for HTML and stuffs I use VSCode (which is pretty awesome as well)I have worked for IBM for about a year in Kolkata, West Bengal as an Application Developer for SAP HANA Business Warehousing. I have thoroughly enjoyed by previous job as a teaching assistant for CS3650 Computer Systems and honestly, I really like my current job, so much that I am now thinking seriously about getting a PhD but then it is a distant dream. Basically, in my 5 years of Computer Science education I have practically tried on everything but I have failed miserably to get all my ducks in a row. Somewhere, I do feel the dire need to specialize in one of the fields but then I like it this way.
