  • Welcome to Mayukh's World e-mail me

    It looks like you've stumbled upon the page of Mayukh Bose. All right, so you're wondering who this guy is anyways and what does this page contain? Allow me to explain -- My life started off in IIT Madras, India and between one thing and another, it still goes on. If you're wondering about the weird first name and family history, click here.
    I currently live in the lovely city of Glendale, California and I work as a programmer/designer/gofer guy in general at Valueclick Media. My languages of choice (and yes, I do use all of them at work/home on a regular basis) are Visual C++, Visual Basic, Delphi, C++ Builder, C, C++, Perl, Php and Python. I also program in other languages such as Java, DataFlex, Gupta, Procomm's ASP language and Fortran whenever I feel like it.
    These pages contain information about computers in general, programming tips for specific languages, some free software programs that I've written and pages on a variety of topics. I have a rather broad set of interests :-).
