It seems it has been a long long time since I last blogged actively. My last active blog is in Blogger called dev-test-ops. But since I moved to China accessing blogger is a pain. So I always wanted to find a better palce to move my blog. After trying wordpress unsuccessfully, here I am blogging in uber geek style :).
A bit about me for those who are new
I am Sai Venkat. I work as a Devops and developer-in-test in a consulting firm, Thoughtworks. Automated continuous deployments, large scale infrastructure management and finding ways to make systems perform better & scalable are my specialities. I love working on any concurrency & multicore problems, concurrent algorithms & data structures. I believe Concurrency is one of those areas where theory meets practice & a frontier where research meets practice & such areas fascinates me.
My recent area of interest and research is Software Transactional Memory. Here is the implementation I have been contributing to Multiverse. Currently I am working on Transactional Collections like Transactional LinkedLists, HashMaps & SkipLists. I am interested in working on Concurrency problems on JVM but not preferrably Java :). I specialize in databases as well mostly in their concurrency & scaling models. Most of this blog will either be filled with Transactional Memoy materials or something concerened with Concurrency.
About this site
This is my pensieve. The site acts as my way to share what I think & want to remember. It is built with python, blogofile, git & github. I didn't want to use jekyll because I didn't want both ruby & python in the same machine :P.
Thank you for showing interesting in the site. I am sure you will find the coming posts interesting & sometimes controversial...
I am too lazy to build the blog myself.. So I got this blog from here. Thanks Manuel for great work.
