About Me

About me

 

My name is Kiran J. Holla. I am a resident of Mysore, India. I am a fairly geeky software professional with almost 18 years of IT experience and work for an Indian IT Major. Though not great at general socializing I can talk endlessly when it is a topic I am interested in.

My interests include technical topics such as:

  1. Wireless Networking Concepts
  2. Open Source Software
  3. Gadgets
    • Smartphones & PDAs
    • Laptops
    • Cameras
  4. Science
  5. General Technology trends

I also spend considerable time in learning and using new technologies. For example, this site is built using Drupal, which is a CMS that uses PHP. I learnt PHP just out of interest. I have also built many small tools using VB.NET, which I learnt on the fly. I have found that Google is a great teacher; it brings information from all over the internet to your fingertips.

My not-so-technical interests include Photography and Blogging. I started blogging in 2006 but haven't been very regular at it as yet. But I will continue to work at it and improve my writing. I hope that as my writing improves, so will my readership.

I tend to be a perfectionist in most of the stuff I take up and that at times gets me into trouble. But given a job, I believe in getting it done right. This is reflected in most of the tasks I take up.

On the personal front, I am married and have a daughter who is 10 years old and a son who is 5½ years old.
