About Me

Hi, my name is Santosh Kumar. Iā€™m am working in a VFX firm named Method Studios as a Pipeline Developer.

As a Pipeline Developer my task is to maintain and build new features in existing Asset Management System which maintain flow of data from one department to other. Resulting in the creation of wonderful VFX rich films and shows.

The primary language we use is Python, Python is also the first language that I picked up.

Apart from my day job, I am very keen towards backend technologies and microservices.

Backstory

From the start, I have been self-taught. I started with writing static web pages at school. Then I felt the need to adding dynamic features to those pages, so I learned PHP which was dominating the market at that time.

I grew a lot of attraction towards computer programming and open-source when I read How to Become a Hacker by Eric Raymond. I started practicing Python and Linux from way back then. That document also emphasizes on community practice and for so I have been active in communities like GitHub and StackOverflow. I got an enormous chance to enhance my Python skills since most of DCC packages already used it.

With passion for web development, I chased technologies related to web. Picking up golang because it language of the era, just like Python was.

This website is my personal space where I share experiences of my personal and professional life.

Currently I am working on various opportunities and projects ā€¦

  • working with Method Studios as a Pipeline Developer
  • preparing for AWS Certified Developer
  • searching for job opportunities in backend development (golang preferred) to elevate my skills
