"Life is the greatest teacher"- Prakhar Agarwal

Recent Activity


I'm Prakhar Agarwal from India. Currently, I'm pursuing my under-graduation from Jaypee Institute of Information Technology University, Noida with Information Technology as my major. I have been developing applications with great enthusiasm over past many years. The center idea of every application is the "User". It is very important for any developer to see through user's perspective. The next most interesting thing I find is "Data". So, Information Retrieval and Database Systems are my love interests in this computer world. If you have anything to share about any of these fields, feel free to mail or IM me.

Lately, I have become a fan of Free-software and Open Source. After having tried many OS, I have finally fallen for Fedora. Its easy to use and pretty awesome. My life has been revolving around Open Source for a couple of years and it has been a dream run till now. The very fact of open communication gives me immense pleasure in working together with so many people. Sometimes you are online with some technical director, sometime you with a RedHat guy. Its simply exhilarating. Online distributed work environment is indeed a new paradigm shift in work cultures. This book is a great guide for beginners of open source: producing open source software
