Anindya Sundar Paul is currently pursuing MSc in Informatics at the Technical University of Munich. His research interests include, but are not limited to Deep Learning, Computer Vision, and Artificial Intelligence. Before this, he completed his undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Dhaka and joined digital payment platform iPay Systems Ltd as a software engineer. Andindya is also a passionate problem solver and a casual blogger. He gave up competitive programming in his second year of college due to his indomitable interest in various subjects of computer science but did not give up the practice of regular problem-solving. He sometimes writes about his education and experience in his blog.
In this episode, we talked about his competitive programming and problem-solving career, the difference between competitive programming and problem solving, the importance of regular problem solving for computer science students, his blogging, higher education in Germany, and life in Germany in general. We also talked about the differences and similarities between computer science studies in Bangladesh and Germany and the necessity (or uselessness) to learn German to pursue higher education in Germany.
