Hello! My name is Charath Ranganathan. Welcome to PFactor.io – a blog about electronics, aviation, flight simulation, and much more.
In my professional life, I am the Head of Engineering for the social gaming division of a large casino, where we build and operate one of the most popular social casino games on the planet. I spent the most time of my career at the erstwhile Sun Microsystems, Inc. (now, Oracle), where I managed some of Sun’s most popular middleware platforms.
When I’m not working, I enjoy flying – I am an FAA-certified Commercial Pilot and I’m working on becoming a Flight Instructor. I’m also an electronics geek who loves nerding out with the Raspberry Pi and Arduino.
