I am Chandni Verma, a Software Developer at heart, who graduated in Computer Science and Engineering from Dr. M.C. Saxena College of Engineering and Technology
Gautam Buddh Technical University, Lucknow, India.
In 2011, I completed Software Development internship in GNOME Outreach Programme for Women Internships where I worked on Empathy, the default IM/VoIP client on GNOME. At times I hacked on the underlying Telepathy communications service of the desktop.
Having played the roles of an ex-member of GNOME Foundation and GNOME.Asia committee, I had worked as a Team Leader for Applied R&D at I.T. Centre of Society for the Advancement of Environmental Sciences where my focus was on Bio-metric software and creating Data Generation tools with my language of preference being Java.
In May 2015, I joined IBM India Pvt. Ltd. as a Software Engineer in the Linux Technology Center. Here I work on Linux tools in the Reliability, Availability, Serviceability (RAS) team and ensure they work correctly and compliantly on IBM PowerPC Architecture. Here I work mostly on C++ tools like lshw and lsvpd, diagnostic tools and some tools written in C like hwinfo and powerpc-utils.
I am also fond of competitive sport programming(earlier mostly in Java and nowadays in C++) and have a long history of participation on sites like codechef.com, spoj.com,topcoder.com, hackerearth.com, codeforces.com. My username on most of the sites is chandniverma.
My areas of interest are Algorithms and Software Design.
Researching and contributing to open source projects,
Algorithm contests, solving riddles.
I can speak C and C++ fairly well. I've started feeling a little rusty over Java.
I like outdoor sports. I can swim, ride a horse and can drive cars @90kmph.
I am a Linux programmer. I like coding efficient solutions to real world problems and am looking for a platform where I get a chance to exploit my extreme interest in the field of computing.
In my website, I brief out my projects and interests that keep me involved over free time. I hope you enjoy reading through them! You can always mail me for some of the code implementations if you want. I'll be more than willing to share! :)
