Meet Roopak Venkatakrishnan, a self professed geek

Roopak is currently pusuing his Masters in Computer Science at North Carolina State University. He can always been found in front of a system trying to hack something up or to learn something new. He has tried a lot of things right from setting up networks, to developing applications and reverse engineering software. He goes by the motto of trying to understand anything he can his hands on.

He particularly loves cloud based applications and has a special place for HTML5 apps. Roopak has worked witha variety of languages across different products, and feels that a new language is not a barrier but an opportunity to learn something more. He is currently on the lookout for internship opportunities and would really love the opportunity to work on a challenging project.
