Bangalored…

… for a fortnight, that is.

Although, I was not  strictly Bangalored, barely a week after joining Logica I was asked to come over for Bangalore for 2 weeks for some training sessions. Now since this was a company sponsored training, my travel and accommodation was handled by them.

Reached Bangalore on Sunday, May 1st morning via the Jan Shatabdi Chennai-Mysore train at 10:45am. Ashwin was kind enough to come over to the railway station to pick me up. Headed over to At-home Guest House at Koramangala, which was to be my place of stay for the duration of the visit. With no agenda being set, Ashwin & Me were wondering what be the next thing to do. Ashwin & Me remembered Ashwin Murali ( “Cruise” to avoid any confusions”Smile with tongue out ) tweeting about TGIF having reopened in Royal Meenakshi Mall, and that’s where we decided to move next.


Goodbye, 3i

just put in my resignation — Sathyajith Bhat (@SathyaBhat) January 31, 2011 ... and there goes the goodbye mail. — Sathyajith Bhat (@SathyaBhat) April 21, 2011 I had tweeted these 2 simple sentences, the former about 3 months ago, the latter yesterday. Yep, after nearly 4 years, I’m moving away from 3i. It’s been an interesting experience - I’ve ranted and raved about my journeys on twitter, and often blogged about my experiences and misadventures in 3i ( if you have same free time, go read through the archives - good stories there).

Heading back to Austin

Well, I’m heading back to Austin for a second stint. Had an amazing time the last time I was there - was there for almost a year. Learnt a lot - technically & otherwise. Unlike last time when I had a flight from Chennai to Mumbai and then a direct Mumbai to New Jersey flight ( with a Mumbai International Airport to boot) - this time, the flight will be from Chennai.

The case of the Neverending SMS Series
· ☕ 4 min read · ✍️ sathya

Most of the Ruby gang are very well aware of the “Stupid SMS series”. For the uninitiated, it was Nitin’s way of…. umm… timepass ? by sending SMS to all of the Ruby gang which made absolutely no sense whatsoever ( I hate to admit it, but it’s true, Nitin is a version of “The Amit").

Anyways back to the post,  couple of days ago, as I was spending time in morning, my iPhone started to buzz away. It wasn’t very surprising, since getting a message in morning isn’t something out of the ordinary. Opened the message only to see it was a blank SMS from an unknown number. Ignored it at first, but then the buzzing went on continuously. In a matter of few minutes my inbox looked like this:


Back In India
· ☕ 4 min read · ✍️ sathya

Yeah, I’m back in India. Well, actually landed in Chennai long time [ damn it’s been more than a month o_0 ]. So let me recap what’s been happening and what I’ve bene upto.

First thing: the return trip. The return flight was rather uneventful, nowhere near how my flight from Mumbai to Austin was ( well, that’s a good thing).

My flight itself was rather long ( heck what do ya expect from a transcontinental flight anyway), covering 4 different flights – American Airlines from Austin to Chicago, and from Chicago to New York  and Jet Airways from New York to Brussels (stop over) and from Brussels to Chennai.


Yes I'm alive!

It’s been  a while hasn’t it, since I last blogged ? *goes to next tab to check last manual blog post* April 19. God! Hadn’t realized its been so long since I last composed. Yes, I’m alive (hey you’re reading this aren’t ya?). I can hear the collective yells of “where the hell have you been”. Well - work. Been drowned, swamped, overloaded - basically been busy with shit loads of work.

Next question - Am I in Austin ?

3 Months… And More to Come!
· ☕ 3 min read · ✍️ sathya

Its been a while since I’ve posted (crap nearly a month) on my blog - so what have I been upto and what’s happening ?
For starters, work, work, work, more work - did I mention work ? There’s just 2 people here in Austin for the project I’m with and as we hit the project go live date, there’s tons of work to be doing - and the 2 of us are just about struggling. My colleague being the Business Analyst & Implementer -means that he’s got to report to his managers about what’s going on and and analysis of bug reports, calls resolved etc. That leaves him busy - and leaves me with a frikkin’ huge set of things to do - test the test conditions in advance and report any bugs found.

Hi I'm SJ

You know very few people know my full name. Most people call me as “Sathya”, my twittter friends “SathyaBhat”. Mainly that’d would because I’ve never mentioned it - not because of “privacy reasons” or I have a name which would cause certain problems - its just that it’s sorta too long - I mean who wouldn’t prefer calling “Sathya” to “Sathyajith Bhat?". Now that I’m here in US - I’ve had to further shorten my name.
