Hi there! I’m Divyendra (Div), a Systems Engineer (SRE) located in NYC. If you are stuck at something, I’m always eager to take a dig at problems that are outside my horizon. Email is provided at the bottom. My first language was QBASIC at the age of 9 (It was a thing back then) and have come a long way from fixing computers for a living.
I like to think of myself as a cheap systems engineer. Cheap in the sense, someone who tries to build simple and effective solutions by keeping the cost low as possible. (Throwing hardware and resources at a problem, never solves the problem). Engineering has always been more than just a “job” for me. Neither do I mind waking up in the middle of the night to address my pager.

As a kid, I always loved helping people to solve their simple tech problems. I doubt I was altruistic as people thought I was since there was some selfishness involved in that deed. I was constantly learning something every time I was solving someone else’s problem.
Being successful at almost anything means having a passion for it. If you see somebody with even reasonable intelligence and a terrific passion for what they do and who can get people around them to march even when they can’t see over the top of the next hill, things are going to happen.
