My name is Akshay. I work as a Software Developer at CityView, one of the best software companies in Victoria. We build products that help local governments all across North America manage their business processes.

I did M.S. in Computer Science at UVic, under Dr. Alex Thomo. A short paper based on My Graduate Thesis was published for Microsoft Research in EDBT Vienna 2018.
At Port Renfrew, BC, Canada

I love reading. Right now, I am reading Deep Survival by Lourence Gonzales. On the technical front, I am enjoying A Philosophy of Software Design by John Ousterhout. For bed-time fiction, I am savoring the Musashi by Eiji Yoshikawa. Here is my reading list for 2020, 2019, 2018.

When I am not reading, I really enjoy programming. Though I work professionally with C# and TypeScript at CityView, I am also having a love affair with the Go programming language. As a side-project, I am working on CC, which is a compiler written in C# for a simple programming language.

What is this blog about?
My goal behind this blog is to document my journey in continuously striving to become a better software developer, covering both the theory and practice of writing software, well. 
Building quality software that delivers value to the user. Not just cool, but useful software.
This is the major theme of this blog. Hopefully, it is useful to anyone working professionally as a software developer.
