About me

Mohan Sreekant (msiyer)

My name is Mohan Sreekant Iyer. I use the handle msiyer on the World Wide Web.

I am a Mechanical Engineer by education, a Software Engineer by profession and a hacker at heart.

The use of “hacker” to mean “security breaker” is a confusion on the part of the mass media. We hackers refuse to recognize that meaning, and continue using the word to mean someone who loves to program, someone who enjoys playful cleverness, or the combination of the two.
- Richard Stallman

I love thinking about Software Engineering - Design Patterns, Software Architecture, philosophical underpinnings of technical concepts ...

I love Applied Mathematics more than Pure Mathematics. I often read about the history of Mathematics. History is never reliable, but important information can always be gathered.

I have a pig-headed Rottweiler friend with whom I go on daily walks. Periodically, I go on really long motorcycle rides (~15 hours).
