  • SafeTime

    Designed and wrote a puTTy like utility in Python to automate the log capturing in the boot up process of pre silicon testing. I reckoned it saves about 20 minutes of an engineers time during Full Boot Chain process. SafeTime automatically reads the serial COM port , logs the kernel messages in background and automatically changes the baud rate once it detects a change. Small, simple project yet very efficient Currently plan to integrate tests into this for complete end to end test result capturing.

  • Weekly Reports Project

    September 2014 – December 2014

    Code contributor for the Weekly Reports Project. My specific task was to ensure a weekly reminder was sent to all employees under a particular group to update their work prior to meetings held every Tuesdays. Worked in PHP and used forms to capture data from the user webpage, query a database containing all the member reports and automatically shoot off emails to ones who have not submitted.In the background it runs a custom designed cron-like scheduler so that even systems without shell access can be used. Technologies used/learnt : MySql, Python, HTML/CSS, Javascript, PHP. Current Status : Ongoing/ Not MAINTAINED View Database : Used to view the database which in turn lets us know exactly how many people have sent in their weekly reports. Modified with options to give the admin(managers) variety of options while viewing reports of employees. Developer : Pradosh Status : Moved to production, beta versions coming soon.
