Yesterday I spoke to students of NPTEL. The topic was "How to be a Good Software Developer". It's more like my advice to my younger self. The talk went on quite well except for few internet glitches. It was also special we because I was part of NPTEL's engineering team at Google. I touched upon the following points. I think each one can be a talk by themselves. Empathy for your users Code is for your team mates Think before you code Be a duct tape programmer Take notes1 Have side projects Learn to be curious Learn the process and tools Write more2 Learn to use Unicode! Ofcourse after the talk in the Q/A session there were questions about preferred programming languages, frameworks etc. I answered them as much as possible. May be I will do an FAQ blog post. I am still getting used to live streaming. You can see me being uncomfortable in the beginning. I was okay after two minutes. I have recorded offline videos using OBSProject. It's an amazing tool. This is the first time I have used it for streaming. It works like a charm. You should try. I also used my Zoom H1 3 to record the audio offline. I have edited the same. You can listen to it in your favorite podcast player. Includes documentation and comments ↩ Design documents, how-tos, longer emails, detailed bug reports and blog posts ↩ Not the software.

ಮೊಬೈಲ್‌ನ ಎಲ್ಲ ರೀತಿಯ ಸಂವಹನದ ಸಾಧನವಾಗಿದೆ. ಜೊತೆಗೆ ಬ್ಯಾಂಕಿಂಗ್‌, ಶಾಪಿಂಗ್‌ ಸೇರಿದಂತೆ ವಿವಿಧ ವ್ಯವಹಾರಗಳಿಗೂ ಬಳಕೆಯಾಗುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಹಾಗಾಗಿ ಹ್ಯಾಕಿಂಗ್‌, ಫಿಶಿಂಗ್‌ಗೆ ದಾಳಿಗೆ ತುತ್ತಾಗುವ ಸಾಧ್ಯತೆಯೂ ಹೆಚ್ಚು. ಈ ಹಿನ್ನೆಲೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಮೊಬೈಲ್‌ನಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಮಾಹಿತಿಯನ್ನು ಸುರಕ್ಷಿತವಾಗಿರಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವುದು ಮೊದಲ ಆದ್ಯತೆ. ಅದಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಎಂಟು ಮಾರ್ಗಗಳನ್ನು ತೇಜೇಶ್‌ ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಸೂಚಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಈ ಪಾಡ್ಕ್ಯಾಸ್ಟ್ ಮೊದಲು ಟೆಕ್-ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಾಣಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಿತು. ನಂತರ ಅದನ್ನು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಪೋಸ್ಟ್ ಮಾಡಲಾಯಿತು.The post Techಮಾತು -1 | ನಿಮ್ಮ ಮೊಬೈಲ್‌ ಸುರಕ್ಷಿತವಾಗಿರಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿವೆ 8 ಮಾರ್ಗಗಳು first appeared on Thejesh GN.
I did some recordings of Panchavadyam (Temple Orchestra) at Sri Sankarankulangara Temple festival (chuttu valakku) in Thrissur. Panchavadyam (Malayalam: പഞ്ചവാദ്യം), literally meaning an orchestra of five instruments, is basically a temple art form that has evolved in Kerala. Of the five instruments, four — timila, maddalam, ilathalam and idakka — belong to the percussion category, while the fifth, kombu, is a wind instrument. Much like any chenda melam, panchavadyam is characterised by a pyramid-like rhythmic structure with a constantly increasing tempo coupled with a proportional decrease in the number of beats in cycles. However, in contrast to a chenda melam, panchavadyam uses different instruments (though ilathalam and kompu are common to both), is not related very closely to any temple ritual and, most importantly, permits a lot of personal improvisation while filling up the rhythmic beats on the timila, maddalam and idakka.

I hope you like it. Let me know what do you think. The post Listen to Panchavadyam - Temple Orchestra first appeared on Thejesh GN.
I love listening to sound of nature or white noise while working. I have tried to record some before. They were of average quality. Mostly because they were recorded on a smart phone. Recently I acquired a Zoom H1n. I have been trying to record on it. I am yet to get a hang of it1. I am also trying to understand and build a DIY setup for binaural recording. I don't think it should be that difficult given how cheap microphones are and I am not expecting to produce the *bestest* audio. Binaural recording is a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of actually being in the room with the performers or instruments. This effect is often created using a technique known as "dummy head recording", wherein a mannequin head is outfitted with a microphone in each ear. Binaural recording is intended for replay using headphones and will not translate properly over stereo speakers. In the mean time enjoy the rains of Thrissur 2 I need to buy a deadcat for it ↩ In November! ↩ The post Rains first appeared on Thejesh GN.
