Hi! I’m Siddharth. I’m the author of Elementary JavaScript, a book to teach young kids programming in JavaScript, an Amazon bestseller in “Children’s Programming Books”.

I’m the VP of Engineering at Skafos, a startup building an AI solution for interactive guided shopping for online retailers.

Prior to that, I was the Director of Solutions Engineering at Cosaic, where I lead a team that works on a unique product called Finsemble, that allows you to build a unified desktop workflow from a combination of web and native applications.

I’m a Software Engineer with 20 years of experience. I have worked at the University of Virginia, Worldstrides (a student travel organization), and various startups, one of which I was the co-founder of. I also ran The Internet Book Database for a few years and wrote at Seeking Alpha. You can find me on LinkedIn.

On this blog, expect to read about renewable energy, finance (since now my blogs are one), technical stuff, Charlottesville, food, movies, books, and whatever else I select to bore you with.

    Hi –
    I’m working with a start-up for food bloggers in Virginia called Tabelog (www.tabelog.us). They’re a subsidiary of the largest company in Japan Tabelog.com (similar to Yelp here in the US).
    We’re bringing their annual restaurant awards to the US that are judged solely by a panel of local food bloggers (all online). The winning restaurants get a framed 2015 award and the food bloggers get an ‘official judge’ icons/etc. and related PR for their blog. We’re looking for bloggers from the Virginia area to invite as an official judge. Is this something that you would be interested in?
    Thanks in advance!
