Internet of Things: Coming soon to a device near you

If you have seen the latest iPhone 5s parenthood ad by Apple, you simply cannot miss the focus on the Internet of Things (IoT). This next-gen revolutionary technology seems to be the way ahead for the largest technology and consumer companies.

Outsourced Product Software Engineering

I have been contemplating as to which media I should be using to share my views and thoughts on evangelizing Outsourced Software Product Engineering! The reason I use the word evangelizing is having spent a lot of time learning, practicing, and educating people around me (peers, superiors, prospects, customers, and team members). In some cases where people came from IT services background, it was difficult in guiding their view point. Overall, with set of experiences (both positive and negative) it has been a pleasant ride so far.

Why should I write (blogs)?

I have always wondered what it must be like for a technical person to be immersed in, almost neck-deep in developing, programming, testing, whatever the nature of the work it is, that demands so many hours of his/her life each day. Of course, unless there is passion, one would never be able to stick through the tides of highs and lows throughout any task. However, amid all this it is really an amazing gesture when these programmers oblige to write a blog! When they are ready to spare time for something that (may not be) their forte, but they still love to share their ‘know-hows’ through writing. I often wonder as to what must go through the first time writers/bloggers mind when he/she is asked to write a blog!!!

Transition is an on-going process in everyone’s life that takes place at different stages. Campus to Corporate transitions needs more attention as they involve a lot of planning. Even though you have high ranks throughout your academic career, once you step into the world of computers and business, it’s your ability to deploy your knowledge that counts and not the grades on your paper. Be it a ‘developer ‘, ‘tester ‘or an ‘analyst’, you have to maximize your efforts and deliver your best.
