Who am I?

I'm Aditya Ramesh. Incoming Software Engineer at D E Shaw & Co. I'm also a former Intern at D E Shaw, Cisco & Deloitte.

Welcome to my little corner of the internet. All content here represent only my opinions.

I spend a normal day usually indulging in some of these activities -
  • Pencil sketching. (Do follow me at @adityadraws)
  • Taking a long walk while listening to a Spotify playlist or podcast.
  • Writing a blog post.
  • Competing in an algorithmic programming contest.
  • Pulling an all-nighter at a hackathon.
  • Studying for my academic examinations.
  • Exploring open source projects.
  • Building personal side projects
  • Writing technical articles for Topcoder.
  • Reading cool engineering blogs.
  • Watching Netflix.
  • Staring at walls while thinking over algorithmic puzzles.

What do I do?

I'm currently a CS undergrad. I'll be joining D E Shaw as a software engineer in 2020.

The tl:dr; version of me is - I learn, build and write. Quite a bit.

For the full version, check out the about me section of my blog.

Why should you read my blog?

Blogarithms is an amalgamation of "Blog" and "Algorithms".

So the answer to this question depends a lot on what you're really looking for. My blog consists of my experiences. Mostly technical, some non-technical.

Articles of mine like "Cracking Dynamic Programming", or "The Two Pointer Algorithm" are great* if you're going to be interviewing with firms like Google, Microsoft, Amazon etc or just enjoy algorithms; while some other articles of mine like the one on imposter syndrome, or why fear may be stopping you from being awesome, might offer refreshing food for thought.

*I say "great" since many of my friends who read my technical articles have received full-time offers from these firms.

Aside from those, we have the articles of mine that cover some of my memorable experiences like building a product at Harvard University, or my article on almost ranking among the top 20 teams in Google Hash Code (India).

Where should you start reading from my blog?

Well, anywhere! Any article with a prerequisite will clearly state so, so fear not and pick whichever sounds fun. I'd suggest using the categories on the sidebar of the blog to find articles.
