Web Developer, Software Engineer, and Writer in Los Angeles, California

I am a web developer, software engineer, and writer at Blogger currently living in Los Angeles, California. My interests range from Software Development to Game development and Web Development.

· I have one-year experience as Application Developer working for Jangda Electric Industries. I was responsible for Designing, Developing and Maintaining their internal warehouse management system. Backend application layer was implemented using EJB (Enterprise Java Bean) and used JSTL, JSP and JavaScript at frontend. Designed the logic using Spring MVC and Hibernate Framework. Had developed validators for application components using Spring validation. Used JUnit, Log4J for unit testing and logging. SVN was used for version control. Used JIRA for tracking and updating the project issues. Have experience with Agile/SCRUM methodology and practiced in multidisciplinary team. And I was involved in all phases of SDLC.

· I used to work part-time at Fifth Quarter Infomedia Pvt. Ltd. as Android Consultant along with Jangda Electric Industries as I am too intrigued with learning new technology. They own and maintain many Bollywood media websites. I was responsible for designing, developing and maintaining their Android applications. Was also a part of their windows phone and windows desktop application development team during their initial development phase. Technologies I used there were Java, XML and Android SDK and Microsoft Visual Studio. Applications can be found online as they are live on multiple app stores like Google PlayStore, Samsung App Store, Amazon app store, Opera app store, AndroidPIT and Windows App Store.

· I used to write and maintain various blogs (Blogger). One particular blog was about various outstanding technologies and other one was about Android technology. Writing blogs helped me with understanding viewers interest by looking through their Analytics. Maintaining Blogs helped me with SEO techniques, having useful widgets around on blog that readers can find helpful and inserting scripts to translate articles to various languages that most readers can connect to. And main thing it helped me, was with Advertising. You start to understand that 'Any Publicity (Good or Bad) is Good for your blog'.
