My third book titled — ‘React-Router Quick Start Guide’ published!

The title says it all. This is my third book with Packt Publishing and I wrote a book after four long years. In the last few months, I’ve spent my weekends writing this book and it was an arduous undertaking. Here’s the cover image:

My first book titled 'Kendo UI Mobile' is here!!

Writing a book was both a personal and a professional goal that I had set for myself. Today I have realized it and I feel accomplished. For almost everyone, first things are very special.

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.
