About Arjun Shankar

I am a student at the Delft University of Technology, pursuing a master's degree in computer engineering. Currently, I am working on my thesis, which consists of writing a GCC back-end optimization pass for a VLIW vector processor, at ST-Ericsson, Eindhoven. Before returning to college, I was a senior software engineer at SAP Labs, Bangalore, where spent three years developing various features of a model driven, scalable, message-oriented middleware framework called DOE.

Back in 1990

Two men wearing jackets are sitting across from each other in 1990. “So! Do you tweet these days?” – “Yeah I just started last month. Gets real tough sometimes though. I tweet my throat hoarse and not a single bird gives a damn.” Both men laugh for a minute, then head out to the bar.
