In with the new (job)

July has been a month of great changes.. I started my first job in July in Chennai –  new city, staying on my own, earning my own money.. but that was about 9 years back.

This year again, July is a month of change. After 5 years(and few days) at CGI(erstwhile Logica), I will be moving away and onto the new unknown. Reasons for moving are many – completed my project, didn’t like the new project’s commute/timings, tech stagnation and personal growth are some of the major ones. Where to next, you might ask?

Well after all these years of corporate life, time for something new – will be joining Styletag.com as the DevOps guy. From Oracle to Rails, on-premise to AWS, this is something that will be a challenge I am sure, and I look forward to it.

Wish me best wishes 😉

Layoffs galore

SInce the past couple of days, I’ve been reading lot of email forwards regarding X or Y Company laying off Z people, and frankly it never really bothered me much – mainly because the forwards aren’t that reliable.

But then today, that whole thing of a layoff really hit me.

Happy Birthday To Me

Well on March 19th, 2008 I turned a year older….(wiser? pfft). It was a nice day, as I landed in Mangalore on that day from Chennai. I’d taked a flight from Chennai to Bangalore on the previous day, followed by a train from Bangalore to Mangalore(my post on my Maiden Flight Journey got lost in teh InterWebs :(( ) However the train was delayed by 1 and half hours, which resulted in me reaching home at 10, instead of the usual 8:30. I was with my family, after being away from family for 3 months it felt good! My phone was busy all day with sms and calls wishing me(my phone bill will be high this time, as I was on roaming while answering the calls and replying to the sms). I also got loads of Birthday wishes on Orkut, Chip forums and on twitter(thanks guys for the wishes!). That evening I went to the temple, followed by a trip to a Hotel called Trshna. Food was kinda ok, but it was a nice outing. The past 1 year has been extremely fruitful, about a year this time ago, I was nearly down the dumps, whole loads of backlogs(aka KT’s), aggregate nowhere near to what is called “acceptable limit”. Lots have passed since then – cleared all my backs, got a distinction, a job off-campus at 3i. Here’s hoping the coming year will be even more fruitful.

Cheers
