Amit Thakur exploring ideas every single day


I’m Amit Thakur.

I’m a software engineer by profession and currently work at Thermo Fisher Scientific - Cloud applications team, at Bengaluru, India. In my free time, I work on my own project, FeedPlayr.

Previously, I worked for Infosys for a two and half years at Bengaluru, India as a Systems Engineer.

I spent my childhood at Jaipur, India. I completed my school and bachelor education in the same city.

I never had stellar academic record, but I enjoyed studying mathematics and physics during high school. I loved making electronic projects. I got motivation for that from my elder cousin brother.

My mother bought me my first computer at the age of 20, during 1st year of my engineering college. I wrote my first program in C++ on Windows 7 OS. I fell in love with it. I tried a lot of things with computers, like, developing websites, desktop application applications for my college projects, and learning scientific computing using Matlab, OpenCV, and C++ language. Here is the detailed list of tools and technologies I use in my daily work.

I have affinity for mathematics, physics, and computer science. I see beauty in some patterns in objects, and feel aesthetic pleasure while programming and studying mathematics.

I love cooking, reading, listening to radio, and travelling.

I like instrumental and chillout music more, but hard rock goes well while working out. I’m not an active swimmer but like to go for swimming at least once every month.

I make daily goals, and measure my progress at the end of the day. I analyse the failure points and learn the good points. This feedback loop makes a better person; everyday.

I have cultivated habit of reading for last two years.

I like to share my useful thoughts and learnings through blogging. Here are few things I learnt in my life.
