Founder and Editor

I’m Ramesh Jha. I’m the founder and editor of Sudobits Blog! I am a GNU/Linux (distributions I use mainly are the latest LTS distributions of Debian, Ubuntu) user and a Web Developer (my recent projects : https://wordfinder.pro, and Words with Friends Cheat ). I enjoy learning and exploring Free and Open Source Softwares/Technologies/Tools. And that’s the reason why I started this blog. Later, I also started writing about some web development frameworks, programming, tools etc. Now, I do not update this blog so often but you may still find some articles written by guest authors.

My Interests : Learning , Meditation, Blogging, Programming (mostly web), Listening Music (Old Hindi songs (especially Kishore Kumar), Indian classical music and many more )..*.

I started a charitable organisation in india recently to raise awareness on air quality issues in rural India. (especially north bihar – my native place) You can read more on official page here : https://samyakfoundation.org if you wish and also raise awareness among your friends and family memebers. If possible, please VOTE mindfully to elect people/party who would care about the well being of environment and people. It’s a health emergency and it deserves the top spot in our priority list.

Why do I promote Free Softwares and Open source ?

The reason is very simple because Free Softwares respect our freedom by giving us the right to use (learn, change, update, share etc) the software, the way we want without any restrictions.

Open source means – source code is available openly for everybody and we are free (by free I mean freedom, although it’s the different fact that most of the Free/open source softwares do not cost anything) to look into, understand or make desired changes to suit our needs.
