Meet the winners of the prize draw in 'Hunt for Real Life WhizDevs'! Congratulations to Craig Louie and Aditya Gupta
Craig primarily works in C++, which also happens to be his favorite language. He also absolutely enjoys Perl on a day to day basis. In his words "it's just a neat language" :-). One of Craig's hobbies is playing with OpenGL, which he thinks is a powerful technology that is "just a joy to work with". He is excited about being a part of the software industry because of the creative freedom it offers and because of the limitless possibilities of what can be made and how one can make it. When he is not busy with C++ or Perl, Craig works on personal software projects that may or may not involve OpenGL. In general, he says "I am always writing, code or otherwise".
Aditya is currently working on IP telephony for enterprise and contact centers solutions. He has been working in CTI domain, primarily with Intel Dialogic telephony boards building products for CTI with focus on speech recognition & related technologies and call center solutions. In his words, he loves being in the software industry primarily because there is always a scope of achieving defined results in a more sophisticated, more efficient and faster way. This keeps his desire to learn more everyday going. Moreover, he feels that working in technology gives a sense of pride when products and solutions deployed are able to help the customers improve their process efficiencies and in turn help them achieve their organizational goals. When he is not busy working, Aditya is a avid Formula 1 fan. Apart from that, he also likes to keep updated about the latest happenings in the financial and stock market world. He enjoys trying a hand at cooking and experimenting with some new recipes :-).
