Goodbye 2012

2012 has just gone by and all I can say is that, it has been yet another eventful year. The biggest thing that happened to me was my new job at Myntra. It has been two months since I joined my new employer and I'm liking my new work. I had started last year with a few goals (I don't like calling them as resolutions) and the very first one was to reduce weight. I had met with an accident in 2011 (a terrible one) and had to stay at home for two months. And by staying at home and munching all that good food, I had put on some extra weight and wanted to loose it desperately. I think I almost cleared that goal and now I'm proud of it.

Book review: Steve Jobs Way by Jay Elliot

I finally completed reading ‘Steve Jobs Way’ by Jay Elliot. I wanted to know how Apple became so innovative and so successful and I knew that Steve did an awesome job to bring this company to a state which is very well known today. Before I started reading this book I had a notion that this book would focus on how hard work or dedication would pay off and all that stuff that one would generally see in any book. This book was different. Different in a way that it taught me the qualities a leader in any industry should have.


2011 - A year full of surprises

I know it's been more than 15 days since the world celebrated new year and every one made some big and small resolutions which they hope they will live up to in this year. I had a fair 2011; there were a few ups and downs but in the end its gone and 2012 is here. Last year I presented ColdFusion Builder 2 at SOTR on the very day it was released to the public (how exciting!!). I was very much excited and nervous at the same time since this was my first talk at a conference. Nevertheless it went well, I have said this before and will say it again, 'Edinburgh is beautiful'.

Steve Jobs - An insanely brilliant man passes away

Today when I woke up and switched on the Television to see what's making the news; I heard about Steve Jobs death. For the first time in my life, I'm feeling very sorry for a tech giant who passed away. Steve was an extraordinary human being. He kissed success not just once but many times. He changed the way we experience technology. His charisma, passion and more importantly desperation to do something great is matchless.
