I am putting this site together to jot down my thoughts and learn from others. I want to make blogging a way to make the tech industry a close knit community. I think it is wonderful that people share their thoughts and one can learn many things from bloggers all over the world.
I have been in the hardware industry for over 20 years and have now recently started working on software products also. I went to graduate school at Georgia Tech and worked in multiple companies (most of them global) as an individual contributor, technical lead, architect, and as a manager of large organizations (100+). I have worked in some of the largest computer companies and small companies. I have worked in US and in India and equally appreciate both the cultures.
I have had the most interesting experiences – some great successes, some dismal failures. I have met the most interesting people, most humane people and some difficult people! I have met some of my best friends here. I have had many wonderful managers and mentors that have helped me grow and learn a lot over the past 20 years. I am going to share and question some insights and observations.
I am married to a techie for over 20 years. We have two lovely boys. I learn a lot about people management by parenting my kids and handling my husband. I take with me a lot of learning from my work to home and vice-versa.
This is my industry, this is what I chose, and it’s my home away from home. I want to make it a better place for us and our future generations.
