some thoughts about surya

Surya (孙健伟) is a technology evangelist who personally interested in Deep Learning. He learns, reviews, and practices by using his understanding of this subject from various kind of resources, such as MOOCs, journals, articles, study group communities, and so on. His passion in Deep learning is overflowing in his daily life by keeping improving his understanding of this subject through seeing from various kind of implementations on another field, such as artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, finance, robotics, personification, and society. He believes, even though he has not got a chance to get a proper education in formal school, he could still able to learn this subject through self-study.

Beside his personal interest in Deep Learning, he is a full-stack developer that has various kind of experience in using these programming languages: CSS, C++, HTML5, Golang, Javascript, PHP, Python, Typescript, and SCSS. He also enhances it by using these frameworks: AngularJS, Angular, Cordova, Electron, and Ionic 1. Behind the scene, he also integrates his products with some database system, such as MySQL and PostgreSQL. Not only that, behind the scene, in order to make his products scalable and ready-to-deploy, he wraps it up by using Docker and puts it in the cloud computing platform, such as Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform. He believes that teamwork is necessary for this development and maintenance layer. Hence, some expertise in using versioning control systems, such as Github and Bitbucket, is necessary. He wants to make sure that the projects he handles are reusable, scalable, and sustainable.
In the personal life, Surya balances his personal and professional activities by conducting physical exercises on the gym. He believes that this kind of physical activities will help him to spark his creativity and let his mind unconsciously maturing the understanding of particular subjects that he is focusing on. Besides that, physical activities help him to have a healthy body and mind, which makes him feel more healthy and more happy in his daily life. He also believes that improving his understanding about self-development and society is necessary, thus reading self-development books and hearing the other's experience about their lives has been synchronizing in his mindset.

Throughout his life, Surya also got some chances to live in various countries, such as China, Japan, and Taiwan. His experience on there is related with his eagerness to learn, which he was living on there as a student with scholarships. By living on there as a student, he perceived a better understanding of the society on there, and eventually, he becomes an open-minded person.

Surya also has some proficiencies in four languages. He fluents in using his mother language, which is Indonesian language. He proficients in conducting some daily conversation in English (iBT - Overall 85), Japanese language (JLPT N3), and he starts to improve his fluency in Chinese language/Mandarin (HSK 2). He believes by using the local language that's used by the interlocutors, they could develop a better relationship.
