Featured Interview With Shashank Pai K
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I grew up in Mysore, India. I love computers and hacking them is fun! I have always seeked intuitive explainations on internal working of computers, the cute machines ! I believe that technology can be preached intuitively to each and every person there! Thus, I developed a skill of explaining technical things in layman terms, which escalated to writing!
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I never had any such extra fascination with books (except textbooks, yeah!), I realized I have to do something for me , my own and then I tried writing, based on some suggestion I came across on the internet and I am stunned today that I can write really well actually!
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Charles Petzold, the one who wrote “CODE” is my favorite author. If I hadn’t read his book, I would have never understood the real inner working of a computer! That book made me crazy to understand computers more deeply! Of course, Computing/Technology is my favorite genre.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest (and first) book, titled “ABCD OF HACKING: The Beginner’s guide” , is all about the website hacks, of course, explained in layman terms! Okay, this book explains: how a website gets hacked, How come a Computer, which in layman circle, usually seen as a ‘Perfect’ machine doing computations or calculations at the lightning speed, have security vulnerabilities?! Can’t all websites be safe and secure always? If you have all these innocent doubts in your mind, then this is the right book for you, seeking answers in an intuitive way !
