I usually do my yearly round up post on either the last day of the year or the first day of the new year, but this time I did not have my laptop around me. After working at Zomato for about a year and a half I decided that I wanted to move out to a new company. The exciting news from all of this is that now I am a Software Engineer in Uber and I also happen to be the first engineering hire from India. Fancy, right?
Work at Uber
Uber is an absolutely fantastic place to work and anyone who wants to write great quality code and work on some epic projects, please join us! If you are looking for some knowledge on what we are doing and how you can contribute, get in touch with me. Hit me up on Twitter @noremap.
2016 is going to be the year where I get to work heavily on Python. I have always been reluctant to use Python for any of work for a long time simply because I don’t like the language’s aesthetics. Not a big fan of the lack of braces. I keep feeling the lack of terseness when I work in Python as the language tends to be more verbose than required. This might be happening because I have been programming in Go recently.
Moving to Bangalore
My current location has changed from Gurgaon to Bangalore. I am slowly getting used to the city but so far everything has been fairly pleasant. People in Bangalore, if you are interested in grabbing a coffee or just jamming over ideas with me, hit me up!
I am eagerly looking forward to this year. The first quarter is already over but this year I will try putting out a post every month.
