Welcome to the home of Shivesh Viswanathan

Unlike many others in this place, I do not have many articles
or books to my name (yet!) but intend to write many more articles
and few books in the years to come. I work in the Windows
environment and COM/ATL, so far, have happened solely out of my
interest in them. I am a big fan of ATL and that was the reason I
was prompted to write about it's internals. It is one of the best
designed framework I have seen in my short life span. Talking of
my work, it's mostly in C++, a little in Java, handheld devices
(those tiny OS's like PPSM from Motorola and Windows CE from you
know who). I have very recently delved into mobile computing, but
cannot boast much about it :(.
I have done my graduation in computer science and would have
probably become a street singer if not for computers. I took a
diploma from Center for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC -
India) and jumped into the computers bandwagon in early 1998. Oh
I was a naughty little back-bencher pestering all my teachers
from day one.
My interests (apart from COM) include music (Led Zeppelin, The
Who, Janis Joplin and many more :), reading (technical, fiction,
sci-fi). No one could give music as consistently as Led Zep and
no one could write as consistently as Asimov. But my favourite
book has been the all-time classic, "To kill a mocking
bird" by Harper Lee.
As promised, I will, very soon, be submitting another article
on ATL. It is a continuation to my previous article. It covers
the internals and architecture of ATL in a little more depth and
covers newer topics which had been left out in my previous
article for simplicity sake. All in all, these two articles
should enable any ATL aspirant to get going. I hope you people
are looking forward to it.
Articles I have written to date:
