Journey so far
Was so eager to join this corporate world before beginning my engineering career and finally i have succeeded to do so. My academic record is not so impressive to get a job immediately in this competitive market. Had to struggle a lot, well that's part of life. After searching for so hard finally i scored a job in Mindset IT Solutions in Bangalore. It's been over a year now I've been working there, have learnt a lot of things i didn't know before. But there is no end of learning and i'm eager to learn more. Being part of corporate world makes me feel good and i'm looking forward to a better future
Challenges in the Technology
Java isn't a challenge, it's a solution. It's a solution to widely used platform dependent applications. There is no device which doesn't or can't run Java. Java has made a lot of codes and complicated codes work in very simple way. All we have to do is just the import required library and use them according to our requirements. For that we have to spend some extra time to learn the working of those library. There is always up-gradation of Java. That's the best part of it
Scope of Java
I see a huge scope of Java in future. Now a days almost all the Operating system companies are gaining market with their latest products. There was a time when Windows Operating systems ruled the world. We can't say that now as Linux, Unix are gaining market gradually. In this scenario Java applications can provide platform independency to all the operating systems. And since java is upgrading periodically, we can't have a better option than this
Java Obstacles
I have been a Java programmer for more than a year now and honestly i haven't faced any problem so far. Whenever i faced any problem, it was due to lack of information about the available options which i used to get easily from my manager. He helped me a lot. But as i proceed further i'm expecting more challenges and i'm sure there are solutions
Intellectual Recommendations
Core Java, An integrated approach by Nageshwara Rao and Murach's Servlets and JSP. These are very good books for both professionals and freshers as both these books cover really good example of programming
Additional Certifications
Oracle Certified Java Programming. I strongly recommend. I haven't attended it but i'm preparing for it now
Learning’s/ Knowledge gaining
I have spent extra time to learn new technologies like Spring, Hibernate, Struts. These technologies are now widely being used in the industry and these are very helpful for programmers to develop high end applications.
Areas for the Future
I feel Spring and Hibernate has a lot of features that enhances the applications capability which is going to matter a lot in future
My Road map ahead
I would like to see myself in a position where i hold the responsibility for development of a complete application and inspire others to do so
Effective decision
I don't consider myself as successful yet
The Most Important Game
So far i have worked as one member developer. SO i don't have a team experience. But I feel I can work fine in a team
Starting Differently Again
I would become a Singer
The Big Question
I already have answered this question. No i don't consider myself as successful
Your role model
Netaji Shubhash Chandra Bose. He dedicated himself for the revolution of independence of India. He had scored 4th rank in American Entrance Exam. He could have scored a royal job, live a rich life. But despite of that he chose to fight the Brithish.
Changes in professional environment
Professional environment has never changed since I've joined. It's the technology which has changed. When i had joined people were using JDK6. A year later JDK7 arrived
Current Role
Currently I'm working for Mindset IT Solutions in Bangalore. I'm responsible for Developing, Testing and Maintaining the application and then Training(Coding) the end user.
Work life Management
I listen to music, play guitar, play drums, spend time with friends, watching movies
Advice for upcoming professionals
If you are interested in coding then only become a java professional and don't ever memorize codes. You better practice it.
