Hi, I am Priya Rajagopal- a technologist, software architect and developer. I have worked on a wide range of technologies in my career including IPTV, SocialTV, advanced advertising, network security, network management and traffic engineering. I have been fortunate to have worked on some cutting-edge technologies and am a co-inventor on 20 U.S patents and there are many more pending.
My current passion is mobile development. The notion of a customizable and powerful mobile computing platform in the palm of your hand (literally) is very exciting. By day, I am a principal engineer at a leading software development company and I moonlight as an iOS developer, developing apps for the iPhone and iPad in my own time. I co-organize the local Mobile Monday meetup group and am involved in the local mobile development community where I have the privilege of meeting and learning from some of the smartest minds in this area.
I am passionate about encouraging women to be involved in the field of computing and I hope that my work will inspire more women to join me.
I am not a blogger or a writer and I have not done much of that. But it occurred to me that there is tremendous value in sharing information, discussing issues and perspectives. In the digital era in which we live, PriyaOnTech seemed inevitable. Of course, I have a very supportive family who make it all possible!
