Hi, I'm Aparup <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banerjee">Banerjee</a>. I'm an Indian who was brought up and educated in Singapore and i'm a recovered windows addict.

The guys at HQ call me <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Apu_Trilogy">A</a>p<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apu_Nahasapeemapetilon">u</a>. I had just moved to Perth from Singapore in 2007 when I first met Martin and learnt more about moodle. After a few years of settling down in Perth, I'm now happy to be moodling.

Currently, I'm on the Sites team at Moodle HQ from where I perform a few functions:

  • Maintain and facilitate the <a title="Moodle plugins directory" href="http://moodle.org/plugins">Moodle plugins directory</a> as well as developers using the system. This ties in with moodle too.
  • Maintain other moodle.org sites, most recently launched was <a title="Learn moodle" href="http://learn.moodle.net">LearnMoodle</a>.

Some of my past roles at Moodle HQ include:

  • Developer and tester in the STABLE team
  • Integrator in the Moodle Product team (iTeam)

My wife, Indu, is a teacher at a local institute and I had for awhile taken a part-time position lecturing in this V.E.T sector. It was interesting to see teaching concepts in the classroom and how they could mapped to moodle in online delivery.

In spare time, <a href="http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CFUQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FParkinson's_law&ei=cYMHUNXLEIOtiAf08cjoAw&usg=AFQjCNFD6t5ByInsveAkiZXEdF4dz4Fqzg&sig2=t4mnRFNHHHtffUHvRXk1Zw">Parkinson's law</a> tends to apply so i try to keep myself busy :-p. The rest of the time, i use for interests below.

I depend on beer lesser now for expressing myself but I'll still gladly talk about any of the following over beers:

  • technology geek
  • druid like naturistic tendencies
  • philosopher (much more so over a good drink)
  • forex
  • astronomy
  • electronics
  • cybernetics (biological and non)
  • AI
  • humans
  • beer
  • society

I also enjoyed helping out with testing our <a title="Moodle mobile app" href="https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=185981">Moodle mobile app</a> :-)
