Bio

If you are looking for my bio to include in your events pages, then use the following.

Longer (WordPress focused)

Sudar has been programming for more than a decade and is a polyglot. He has written production code in more than half a dozen programming languages – and most of it was using Vim!

Sudar started his career as a web developer, working with various technologies and framework. He moved on to building distributed applications using MapReduce and other big data frameworks to process and mine huge amounts of data. Sudar then worked at Yahoo Labs as a Research Engineer, where he analyzed user interaction data using machine learning techniques to better understand user behavior and interactions in web applications. His work resulted in increased conversions and improved user engagement. Towards the end of 2014, Sudar decided to shift his career towards WordPress and joined 10up, a leading WordPress design agency that makes web publishing and content management simple and fun.

Sudar first discovered WordPress in late 2005 while searching for a self hosted blogging platform for his migration away from Blogger. After tinkering with WordPress for his blog, he published his first WordPress plugin in late 2007 and has since continued to release more than 20 plugins with a total of nearly half a million downloads. He blogs about WordPress and web development at http://sudarmuthu.com

When he is not in front of a screen, Sudar enjoys reading and is a diehard fan of Isaac Asimov and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Other favorite pastimes include traveling, playing table tennis, tinkering with electronics and building small hobby robots.

Shorter (Hardware Focused)

Sudar Muthu has been programming for more than a decade and is a polyglot. He has written production code in more than half a dozen programming languages – and most of it was using Vim!

He generally likes to play around with gadgets and builds robots as a hobby using Arduino and Raspberry Pi. He conducts workshops about Arduino and robotics and has given talks at various conferences about hardware programming. He blogs about his experience in hardware programming and about his various pet projects at http://hardwarefun.com

    We are facing some issues while implementing 2d graphs in one of our Android application. The application should work in offline mode and the application shouldn’t communicate to any servers. So we can’t use any apis to implement the graph.

    We are using sql lite database to save data. The application has an interface to accept data and save it in the DB. In the report section we are generating graphs based on the data in the DB.

    Now are using a library named “achrtengine” for this purpose. But we are facing some problem to customize it as per the client’s design. Please find the attachment for the designs of the graphs. We have almost implemented the 2d version of the graphs but we couldn’t able to write numbers on the graphs as shown in the images. Which is the better method to implement the graph? Please advice

    Can yu help us in this
