I am a Cat Lover

About

Let me introduce myself.

People call me Praveen or PravMan. I am an ailurophile, vegetarian, and an experimental chef. Well, I would like to experiment as much as I can, on food and my life. My body is made up of HTML & CSS, which is literally me! This defines me as a Full Stack Web Developer (Front End, Back End, Middleware, Whatever...).

Oh yeah, I am a highly motivated, passionate hard-core web developer with diverse experience in developing web applications, hybrid mobile apps, and cloud computing solutions ranging from working on cute layouts, payment gateways etcetera and the list goes on till making a clone, better than Facebook. Yup, you heard it right. I did make a clone of our favourite social network from scratch.

Once upon a time, I was consistently ranked as top 0.01% developers in Stack Overflow. I stopped contributing much after achieving 100k reputation points. I am also a Pluralsight Mentor, Thinkful Mentor and a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional in the field of Visual Studio & Development Tools.

Tata Consultancy Services

Front End Architect / Research Scientist

My work is to convert the images into a valid (X)HTML and CSS, with Cross Browser Compatibility across IE 7+, Firefox, Chrome and other standard browsers. Most of the projects would be Enterprise Applications.

Working on CSS is my expertise. I have learnt a lot in finding the issues with the layout engine of old Internet Explorer browsers and make them work with the desired box model and layout. I have started working with the awesomeness of CSS3.

It is also my work to handle the interactions, which do not require a server response. I work on jQuery and make the interactions usable. The maximum I have done is using AJAX to get the response from the server in JSON format, manipulate it and render it on the browser, with some good effects.

I have also used faye and tried out getting live desktop notifications using WebKit Notifications API in Chrome.
