Omschrijving Engels

Hello :)

I am Sundeep. I write tutorials on using Linux command-line, Vim, Text processing and Scripting languages like Perl and Python. I used to work for a semi-conductor company before deciding to discover what I'd really like to do. The journey has been full of surprises and currently am enjoying creating free learning resources, conducting workshops when opportunity arises.

Initially, I used to have ppts while conducting workshops. Later I moved to using LibreOffice and convert to pdf. But formatting and editing issues led me to discover about Markdown and use GitHub instead. That led to continuous strive on improving the tutorials (feedback helped too) and learning new stuff. Got a big break when chapter on GNU awk hit front page of Hacker News. It's been satisfying to see my tutorials recommended elsewhere on net.

I also happened to spot a corner case regex issue with GNU grep and notice missing Ruby documentation

Why I am requesting donation

  • am currently living in outskirts of a city in southern India, my living costs(food+rent+internet) translates to about USD $50 per week
  • my savings from prior job would run out soon and having a steady income would give peace of mind and let me concentrate on learning and improving my tutorials

Other interests

Apart from technology stuff, I spend most of my time reading loads of books, helping programmers on stackexchange, loitering on Reddit/HN, trekking and following my favorite sport Cricket

Recently, while attending a conference, I came to know that Homeschooling/Unschooling/etc is catching up in India too. I am hoping to help them as well.

Thanks for donating :)
