During the course of development, sometimes one needs to load a specific library from a specific path instead of the stock library that comes installed with the linux operating system. In such cases, LD_PRELOAD is a useful tool. For example, my Ubuntu…

For every failure of Modi Govt, the most common argument offered is “Have to undo what Congress did for 60 years”. A lot of Modi bhakts have that argument on the tip of their tongue and now it has been adopted by others too who may not necessarily be…

Looking for Freelance/Contract opportunities in the Embedded/Wireless Domain.

The startup company I have been working with over the past year and a half has run out of money and I'm back on the job market looking for a freelance/contract based opportunity in the Embedded/Wireless Domain. Cloudleaf Inc (www.cloudleaf.io), the company I have been working with recently, is based in Miliptas, California and for the entire duration of my association with them, I worked remotely out of my Ahmedabad home.

At Cloudleaf, I have worked extensively on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) based IoT (Internet of Things) systems and more specifically on the Nordic hardware/software stack (www.nordicsemi.com). Besides BLE, I also developed a wireless (802.11) scanner which could be utilized for monitoring the movement of Smart Phones in closed spaces such as department stores and warehouses. Additionally, I have also created various C based APIs to interact with cloud services over REST APIs, Websockets and also worked briefly with MQTT.
In the past, I have worked extensively with the Atheros Wireless Stack (802.11/802.11n) and various other Linux based firmwares. I have a varied experience while working in the US, Vietnam and India for over 11 years in different roles and with a motley of technologies. A detailed resume of mine is available on my blog at http://www.humbug.in/resume/.

Friends, if your company or someone in your social/professional circles are looking out for software contractors with similar expertise, it would be really helpful if you could forward my profile.

Resume => www.humbug.in/resume/

Over past several months, BJP’s hooligans have been involved in innumerable cowardly attacks against Aam Aadmi Party’s leaders and its volunteers. After each attack, BJP spokespersons on various TV channels either promptly justify the violence or reluctantly condemn the act while always attaching a disclaimer to their condemnation. Usually the words uttered are “We condemn all sorts of violence but…”.... Read more →

Modi's interview with ABP News: 56 inch ka seena, choohe jaisa dil! - Truth Of Gujarat
An interview of Narendra Modi which does not ask pointed questions about Modi’s criminal complicity in Ishrat Jahan encounter and the snooping of Mansi Soni is nothing but a ‘fixed interview’. In July, 2013, CBI’s charge-sheet in the Ishrat Jahaan case exposed how the Gujarat Police had sought Narendra Modi’s and Amit Shah’s approval to murder Ishrat Jahan and 3... Read more →
