Hello, I’m Marvin Danig—an engineer and an American in-the-making.
In my spare time, I could be found hacking on Bookiza Abelone.
This blog represents my personal thoughts, and not that of my employer(s) or the companies that I am involved with.
Hopefully, that’s clear from the casual tone of this blog.
Thoughtful comments are welcome. Be human.
Originally from India, I finished my undergraduate degree in engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur in the year 2002. At the time I used to be a lead guitarist in my hall band.
I have since moved away from music scene, but I do love to listen to great music as you can see from the posts on this blog. I am a soldier of science and technology, and filter everything that I work on through the lens of science and math alone.
These days I’m dabbling with progressive web apps.
The post-pc era or the “tablet web” as some might put it. I am curious about the increasingly blurring lines between what separates an “app” from a “website.” I think there is no difference between the two despite the marketing-speak that’s otherwise.
In the past, I’ve had the opportunity to lead and be a part of both small and very very large projects. My projects have varied between a petrochemical complex to a multi-leg, multi-modal travel search engine. I was part of the team that carried out the feasibility study on the trans-national Indo-Iran gas pipeline and oversaw implementation of a virtual gas virtual pipeline system similar to the one in Fairbanks, Alaska.
I am currently working a new format for digital books called the Superbook format.
When not working, I’m usually spending time with my lovely wife and one of the two dogs Ellie and Baxter. I do this only to make the other pupper jealous.
