stones throw

Sriram Srinivasan

I love computer science, mathematics and writing code, and am constantly amazed and grateful that I get paid to have a jolly good time. Over the last 25+ years, I have delivered a variety of commercial and open source software, including high performance server and transactional frameworks (WebLogic), wireless sensor systems (Sensys), protocol translators, cargo planning systems (UPS/Fedex), device drivers etc. Here's my résumé.

I have a PhD in computer science from the University of Cambridge (King's College).

I love traveling, cooking, sketching, reading, biking, tabla, old hindi film songs and watching FC Barcelona & Brazil football.
