To illustrate, the python code to get the current working directory is: import os os.getcwd()import os os.getcwd() . On OSX, the output of that is: ‘/Users/vikrambahl/Documents”/Users/vikrambahl/Documents’ . The ‘os’ module makes it easy […]

This application was the first one I created while learning computer graphics at NTU. It parses a .m file, which is nothing but a bunch of numbers representing vertices (x, y, z) in the 3D plane. The resulting 3D model is displayed in the viewport. Options for orthogonal/perspective projection along with various viewing options to […]
Published a paper on techniques for shredding data from storage devices. Guttman’s algorithm to DoD to the NSA algorithm were all put to test on a 1GB flash drive. The results were published in this paper.
Gave a talk on audio signal processing with python at PyCon Singapore 2013. I started using python to quickly prototype a beat recognition system for my masters dissertation. I realised the power of python in signal processing. The speed at which you can test algorithms is astounding. You can perform a cross FFT on the […]
I almost exclusive use google chrome (unless I need firebug on firefox) for web browsing. It is highly cutomizable, powerful, fast and you can get super cool extensions and apps from the google play store. I use a lot of chrome extensions like xmarks, evernote, google dictionary, mozbar etc., so I had an idea for […]
