-[Namaste][]! I'm Rohit Yadav ([Devanāgarī][devnagari]: रोहित यादव). I earned my B.Tech and M.Tech (IDD) in computer science and engineering student from [IIT-BHU](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_Institute_of_Technology_%28Banaras_Hindu_University%29_Varanasi). I'm an opensource and free software evangelist and in my free time I read [HN][] &amp; [Slashdot][]; hangout with my [gang](http://baagi.org); sometimes I like to beatbox and play bansuri/xaphoon/tin-whistle/flute; learn new things; I love robots and work on some opensource projects.

-These days I'm an [Apache CloudStack](http://incubator.apache.org/cloudstack/) developer and [committer](https://www.ohloh.net/p/CloudStack/contributors/). During the journey of hacking CloudStack I authored [cloudmonkey](http://pypi.python.org/pypi/cloudmonkey), created a newer [DevCloud2](http://people.apache.org/~bhaisaab/cloudstack/devcloud/devcloud2.ova), refactored the api layer and related services, wrote few plugins, worked on virtual router, developed scripts for creating custom or DIY SystemVM templates, developed DatabaseCreator for rolling upgrades, worked on a lot of bugs and maven build system issues. I also helped arrange a meetup, spoke at a [conference](http://collab12.cloudstack.org/), participated in the 4.0, 4.0.1 release process. I'm personally looking forward to the 4.1 and 4.2 releases, and ACS becoming a top level project.

-As one of the [VLMC][] developers, I worked on its GNU/Linux and Mac OS ports and maintain its CMake based [build system][CMakeQt] that I mostly wrote myself. On Freenode, I'm *bhaisaab* and I hangout on #vlmc, #videolan, #baagi. In my free time, I'm developing a (teaching/hobby/x86) monolithic kernel; hacking Arduinos; and fooling around with [functional](http://learnyouahaskell.com/) programming languages.

-Graffiti was the most creative and fun project which my friend [Abhishek][] and I hacked from scratch during our sophomore year at [IIT-BHU][]. My B.Tech project, [VMController], was based on the [works][david-boincvm] of the amazing [David Garcia Quintas][david]. My M.Tech dissertation was on wireless speech controlled mobile robot with collision free path planning. During my last year at IIT-BHU, my friends and I found an unused 1Gbps NKN (National Knowledge Network) fibre-optics based Internet link and about 196 multicore servers (donated by NVidia), and we used some of those servers to create a VPN server that serves over 3000 students and was a lot better than the BHU-CC proxies.

-In the past I was; [GSoC] student for [VideoLAN][yt-vlmc-wiki] and my [project][gsoc-project] was around [VLMC][]; [Unpaid Associate][boincvm] at CERN and I worked with the awesome [Dr. Ben Segal][ben] and the [CernVM][] team and contributed to the [BOINCVM][boincvm] project; and Adobe AIR app dev contest grand prize winner at the [TechFest][] (AIR-O-MANIA) and the [CodeFest][] (Gumbo Rumble), for [ScuttleButt][].

-I find most social networks boring and frivolous, I don't have a facebook account but irc/twitter works. I think mutt is one of the best software ever written and so are GNU/Linux, zsh, tmux and irssi; email still rocks and the best way to reach me - <rohityadav89@gmail.com>
