Sitaram Chamarty has been in the software industry for a number of years. He is a Linux and open source evangelist who has sometimes been called an "open source bigot", which he takes as a compliment. He loves Perl enough to believe, or at least insist, that xkcd 224 is actual fact.
His day job is with Tata Consultancy Services, and he lives and works in Hyderabad, India. His job does not explicitly include evangelizing open source in general and Git in particular, but he pretends it does. He has signifi cant past experience in language conversion and tools, as well as in data warehousing.
He has a postgraduate degree in Computer Science from the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, India.
