This is my first post of the year 2012!
Yup. Became lazy… ok. Here after I will do blog posts regularly . Cool.
Since 27.12.2010 I have been working as a Project Associate in in the Centre for Atmospheric Science, IIT Delhi in the project named “Development of Framework for Systematic Model Diagnosis” under the guidance of Prof./Dr. Krishna AchutaRao . Our client is NCMRWF, Noida.
Now 1.5 years passed away.
I am happy to say that I got selected in M.Tech (part-time) Interview which was held on 22.05.2012 in the Centre for Atmospheric Science, IIT Delhi.
Yes. In my centre itself I am going to do M.Tech programme in Atmospheric & Oceanic Science Technology. Instead of 2 years the part time M.Tech degree will take 3 years to complete it.
Around 140 students were appeared for the interview. But only 16 people (14 regular, 2 part time) are selected by the committee. I am one among them. Now I am proud to say that “I am an IITian“… :-)
Hope the T-Shirt Logo suits to me too… :-)
I have been here (in delhi, iit delhi, zanskar hostel) for the past one and half years.
Delhi has two extreme climates in a year, those are Summer and Winter.
I am comfortable in summer than winter….
Initially I dont like north indian food. But I had to accept it by the year passes away. I am missing my south indian veg food idly, sambar, rice, rasam, keerai, poriyal, pickle, etc., :'(
My Learnings in the past 1.5 years :-
* Python Programming as Standard Way of Writing Scripts
* PyTest – Unit Test
* Sphinix – Python Documentation
* XML, HTML, CSS, JS, JQuery
* Quickly, Glade, PyGtk (Desktop GUI)
* More about CDAT (Climate Data Analysis Tool)
My Contributions to CDAT :-
In the past one and half years, I have fixed two bugs in the cdat.
1. Domain region selector – ‘cc’, ‘co’ bounds
2. Taylor Diagram – Plots Standard deviation lines over the 2nd quadrant.
They have accepted my patches for those bugs.
Under Future Contributions to CDAT:
Also I am working on plotting weather fronts, highs & lows over the map using CDAT.
I am doing this in my free time. Let me update here once I will finish it.
I love to work on CDAT/Python under my Professor/Dr.Krishna AchutaoRao.
Hmmm… By July 2012, I will be joining in M.Tech Program in IITD. So here after I will post more about meteorology and atmospheric related stuffs. Also I will post about programming.
The thing is I have to learn Fortran/Grads to work in M.Tech Laboratory… OMG!
By the way, I have to be here (in Delhi, IITD) for 3 more years… Still I couldn’t learn Hindi. But I will try to learn it here after.
I have already studied M.C.A (Master of Computer Applications) in Saveetha Engg College, Anna University Affiliated, Tamil Nadu (2007 to 2010 batch).
According to Anna University, M.C.A is a Post Graduation Degree. But according to IIT, M.C.A is an Under Graduate Degree. :-( . I dont know what to say… Each Institutions having their own rules. So I can not do Ph.D in IIT with my M.C.A degree Or I may need to write GATE.
If I had done M.Sc, then I will be eligible for Ph.D program in IIT. Shhhh..!
So I have chosen M.Tech programme. To apply/join part time M.Tech programme, we need one year work experience. I have more than that. Finally I got it.
Past one and half years I have been working in the Centre for Atmospheric Sciences. But I couldnt understand few scientific analytical parts of what I am processing & plotting over the maps.
Hopefully I will fill the gap between the atmospheric science & computer science using the modern language in the future.
See you soon .!.
