Hey, I’m Nan Zhu (usually known as CodingCat in community). I’m a programmer currently living in Montreal, a very nice city. I love coding with a special interest in distributed system, large scale data processing techniques involved projects. I actively contribute to Spark, a fast and general engine for large-scale data processing, in the community (https://github.com/apache/spark/pulls/CodingCat). I usually code in Scala (my favourite programming language !!!), Java and C++, and also feel very comfortable with Python, Bash and C.

In 2012, I started my PhD journey in McGill university. In McGill, I work in distributed system (large scale data processing) and computer network (the major focus in on Software Defined Network). I participated in several projects collaborating with Microsoft Research and Facebook.

Just feel free to contact me by leaving comments here! I’m always willing to communicate more with the community to have valuable discussion and collaboration.
