So who am I and what I am doing?


I am Hemant Jangid. A small programmer in the huge programming world. True, I haven’t created any programming language but that doesn’t change the fact that:


I always have. When I was taught the way programming language works in my first Fortran class, statements like “A = A + B” seemed crazy enough because they doesn’t mean anything in mathematics. But it wasn’t long before I started to be amused by the power of programming languages. It was great to see how much you can get done by instructing computer. It felt like you can controlling a fictitious but working world. It felt like there is no limit to what you can do when it comes to creativity with no fear of breaking things. Come’on, what can get wrong even if you try some new thing? No computer is burnt yet because of too many compiler errors
It has been almost 9 years since my first computer program and I am proud to say that new language facilities still fascinates me. I can’t wait to see the enhancements done in public beta of my IDE. I am a huge fan of Anders Hejlsberg, Jeff Atwood and Joel Spolsky. I read their blogs regularly and I enjoy them as much as watching the Friends episodes.

Currently I have the responsibility of leading a software development team and one product. My work involves dealing with Delphi, .NET (C#) and SQL Server.

Why “Ten Pennies” when the blog shows only 2?


Well this is not by mistake. In programming (or strictly speaking in Binary language which computer understands), number “2″ is actually written as “10″. So my “Two Pennies”, in programming becomes “Ten Pennies”. Call it my tribute to great programming world.

I intend to write about various software, new exciting things in web world, programming difficulties, my expriences with programming job and little about other things in my life.

I am probably level 4 or 5 programmer as per Jeff's definitions, so its unlikely that my blog will contain anything simply great but I do intend to share anything little I possess. It may be little humour, real life experiences or code snippets.

If you would like to contact for any weird reason, just leave a comment on this page.
