A New Life as a Recurser

First a few updates. I left my job as a software developer at Mentor Graphics in India. I have moved to the USA. And I have been accepted to attend the Fall 1 batch at Recurse Center. I am going to spend my next three months here. It’s an educational retreat for people who want to get better at programming.

I have been working on building various verification products for the Semiconductor industry using C/C++ on Linux. I wanted to learn some new stuff which include –

1. Functional programming

2. Distributed computing

3. Machine learning

4. Database and scalable systems

Three months are not enough to be an expert in all four of the above. And I haven’t yet decided what I am going to build during my time at the Recurse Center. For now, I plan to learn a functional programming language and build a system/library with it.
