Satya Komatineni

Satya komatineni has been programming for too long, frankly, (over 20 years) in the IT and Web space. He has worked with Assembly, C, C++, Rexx, Java, C#, Lisp, Html, Javascript, CSS, Relational databases, Object databases and related technologies. He has published over 30 articles touching many of these areas in a number of print and online magazines. The primary list of articles are available at http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/au/241. Satya has also managed to confuse O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) organizers a few times in the past to be a speaker at OSCON on a number of obscure quixotic concepts.

He continues to refine the goal of Active Intellect, Inc., based on the same quixotic concepts surrounding web based presence, computing, and personal growth. You will find him, more than often, at his site that is developed using the same "quixotic" technologies at http://www.satyakomatineni.com. You can find a bit more detailed, but perhaps a bit dated, resume here.

While closely working with Indent, inc., he was involved in a number of projects funded by Small Business Innovative Research program. One of the programs developed is an early javascript and SVG based drawing program that works like a mini-visio on the web. He has also helped Indent to optimize J2EE portals for rapid development and deployment of web sites.

Satya holds a Masters in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, India, 1986, and a Bachelors in electrical engineering from Andhra University, India, 1984. Although he thoroughly enjoyed the fascinating subject matter of Electrical Engineering the value at this point appears primarily nostalagic.

His happy place is a large well architected library. V.S. Krishna Memorial Library in Vizag and UNF library in Jacksonville, Florida are a couple of examples.
