My name is Vaneet Mehta. I am 25 years old and live in London. I am a friendly, hard working, motivated indivdual who has a huge passion for technology. I am currently working as a analyst programmer at Gentrack UK, where I learnt and utilise an in house programming language, GenBasic. I work as part of a team of Gentrack employees on site at Ovo Energy, where we all work in different project/product teams. In these teams, we communicate directly with the business in order to understand the new enhancments the need for the system and devise solutions for them. I am currently looking for a new employement within my field where I can work with more mainstream programming languages and build upon them.
From a young age, I have always been interested in technology. My Dad worked for BT, so he would always bring home the latest technological gadgets and advancments. I would always play around with what he would bring home, urious to learn more about it. Over the years, my passion grew further. During my BSc at 'The University of Nottingham', my fellow students and I were taught MATLAB. My thirst for knowledge in programming grew from here. Searching for more led me to Codecademy where I picked up knowledge in web development, Python, Ruby and more. Click here to see my Codecademy profile!
This led to my decision to apply to 'Imperial College London' to do a Masters in Computing Science. Through my course, I have learnt a great deal. My favourite language is C++ and enjoy using it immensely. I would love to increase my knowledge of C++ and become a stronger programmer all round.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing video games. I have been playing video games from a young age, playing Super Mario World on the SNES and Pokémon on the GameBoy. I also love to keep up with technology, reading various websites (such as TechCrunch, Wired, BBC and MacRumors) and watching videos such as BBC Click to keep up to date with all the latest advancements.
