Coding philosophy

I am an admirer of clean coding. I want to write code that is easy to collaborate and maintain. Regardless of the project size, I try my best to write the most organized and efficient code possible without sacrificing usability.

I am a big fan of minimalistic designs.

Human life

If I am to talk about my life minus computers - I am a mountain biker, a devoted lover of books, and a backpacker. Binge reading all types of books is in my blood.

I am a linguaphile, I practice foreign languages in my free time. I speak four languages. My primary language is Bangla, but I am quite fluent in English too. I also speak Spanish and some French. I love colors and I love taking photos. (Mostly of nature and landscapes, here is my Flickr)

I am a family guy. I love spending time with my dearest ones.
