What I’m Doing Now

I’m living in Bangalore, India and working (from home) at Google.

Learning

I’ve been slowly working through Crafting Interpreters. I hope to finish the book sometime early this year (or late, I’ve lot track of the years now). I’ve been implementing the interpreters from the book in Haskell, and trying out different variations to learn various techniques. It’s taking a lot of my time but it feels very rewarding.

I’m planning to pick up a more advanced compiler book after finishing it. As of now, my choice is Modern Compiler Implementation by Andrew Appel.

Reading

The year started well in reading and I finished a few books. Originally, I had planned to read 30 books this year but I’ve been spending a lot of time learning various things so that goal seems a little difficult to achieve now. Nevertheless, I’ll try my best.

Blogging

The study of interpreters inspired me to write some posts about what I learned. I posted part 1 of a series of posts about implementing a small interpreter programming with support for coroutines. More to come soon.

Physical Activities

Because of the lockdowns due to COVID-19 over last few months, I’ve only been doing workouts and body-weight training in my home. The lockdowns have lifted now and I’m vaccinated too! So I’m planning to start running and cycling again. I went out for a trial run after almost a year and it was hard. But no matter, I’ll get back to it slowly.

Watching

My wife and I are doing an MCU movies marathon. We also watched the new MCU TV shows; they were great. I found a couple of good animes to watch as well.

This is a “now page” which itemizes the work and other priorities that I’m concentrating on right now.
