Hariharan Arunachalam
Student
India India
Hariharan leapt into the field of programming after being introduced to C in his second year at college. A fan of basketball and chess, the logical thought process behind programming and the concepts of linking real principles onto a concrete platform pushed him deep into this field. On finishing his bachelor's majoring in Electrical and Electronics engineering with Soft Computing, Numerical Analysis and Biomedical Engineering as minor, he did a six month stint at India's second largest IT company- Infosys Technologies. He left Infosys armed with strong concepts of SDL Cycles and process development, gained domain knowledge in Java and had explored Visual basic, C++, C# and kept his mind open for more. Currently working in a startup as the product designer, his arsenal of technologies has doubled to accommodate the challenges his job demands.
Off work, he enjoys learning new languages (non-programming) and is currently teaching himself German and Spanish. He also enjoys travelling around and exploring new ideas, places and relationships.

Currently attempting to extend his education to post graduation.
