I was thinking about what should be the first post here and WordPress (the software used to run this site) helped me out. It created a default post with this title and I realized what better way to start a programmer’s journal than with a “Hello, World!” post! So here is a quick introduction about me/this journal.

I got my first taste of programming with GWBasic on a DOS-based PC when I was 9 years old. Since then I have been fascinated with computers. Then in my first year of college I was introduced to the amazing world of C programming and have been programming since then. I have been working professionally for the last 13 years in the software/IT field with the main focus on Unix/C/KSH scripting.

Over the years, I have searched the internet for many different types of problems and have gotten a lot of help from people sharing tutorials/tips/recipes/source-code etc. However, till now I have only used that information, but never gave back. This journal is an effort to do exactly that… give back.

I plan to share with everyone different kinds of problems that I face in day-to-day programming and how I solved them. The posts would range from a theoretical approach to a mid-level design to a code-implementation.

Hopefully you will find some of them of use!
