Dear Readers, Welcome to the callicoder blog.
My name is Rajeev Kumar Singh. I’m the founder, designer and editor of this blog.
I work as a Lead Engineer at GoJek, Southeast Asia’s SuperApp.
CalliCoder is a computer science education blog where I write about programming languages, web development, desktop app development and system design.
I started this blog so that I can share whatever I learn during my day-to-day job with other programmers. It gives me immense pleasure when people read my articles and say that It has helped them.
Moreover, This blog helps me organize my thoughts and improve my overall knowledge because It forces me to do thorough research before writing any article.
What does Callicoder mean?
Everyone who hears the name callicoder asks me what does it mean?
Well, Callicoder is derived from the word Calligraphy. Calli in Calligraphy means beautiful. So, the word callicoder is loosely related to the idea of writing beautiful/clean code (or being a beautiful coder :p).
The Logo of this blog is built around the idea of Zen symbol.
In Zen, ensō (“circle”) is a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. (Excerpt from wikipedia)
