Now let’s find out what our Programmer of the Month for June 2010 has to say.
How/When did you start programming?
I started coding when I entered college. Seniors and friends inspired me the most.
What do you do when you’re not programming?
Typerace with friends or watch movies. Shows like WWE and TNA. Otherwise I play soccer or sleep.
What do you like most about CodeChef?
The monthly challenges. They are conceptual and have helped me a lot.
How many hours a day do you program?
What’s your favourite book and why?
Not any till now.
If you could eat dinner with any famous person (past or present), who would it be and what dish would you have?
The person would be Mark Calaway(The Undertaker). The dish would be anything he prefers.
What are your plans for the future.
Getting a job before I complete my final year in college. After working for 2 or 3 years, I might go for higher studies.
