    Python addicted script junkie, WebDev, SysOp with focus on Security

    India - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 6

    I prefer coding in Python, but am well versed in several languages including Java, PHP, C. Would love to code backends. Quite nostalgic about simple algorithm challenges (TopCoder anyone?). Apart from these general flair, have some experience in pentesting and reversing. I regard security as the first concern, and believe to protect from evil, you must know the tools of their trade. I don't stop till I provide what the employer wants, for which, I generally prefer an employer who knows what he wants. I look forward to learn and re-innovate in any task.
