Anurag Dixit – Billion Dollar Programmer

Posted by g.e. on July 22, 2006

To those who like to make fun of indian programmers, i would like to introduce Anurag Dixit :)

This humble man (a predominant number of the smart indians are very humble, so i am happy to note this trait here) wrote the code for the online gaming company PartyGaming that owns the largest online avenue for Poker playing PartyPoker.

And when PartyGaming was listed in LSE in 2005, he is believed to own $2+bn (yes, no typos) in stocks.

PS:
Hi Dixit, pls see the post on Vendata University elsewhere in indscriptions.

    Hi,

    I worked with this gentleman a couple of years back at partygaming. I wanted to just second ‘g.e’ comment. Anurag was a gem of a person to know….I am sure all of the employees (ex and current) won’t forget the check shirt and suspenders, salt and pepper hair that added to his very approachable personality…and yes, who can forget the share options he gave all of us :)
