The Journey : Early Days to How I Got Here
I started as an associate software engineer in Mphasis, an HP company
working on Java/J2EE technologies. With growing years of experience I
got more exposure to the latest technologies and processes of the IT
world. After moving to Symantec became part of mobile app development
project. After initial learning curve, I gradually became the key
developer managing various security aspects of our app including
deciding on the right crypto graphic algorithm to be used, picking up
the secure mobile data storage, selecting the right code obfuscator tool
etc.
Decisions That Mattered
Right from the initial days of my carrier till date, I always kept my
focus on learning and working on Java/J2EE technologies. This helped me
to learn more insights of these technologies. Furthermore, while keeping
my thrive for Java on I moved onto the mobile app development project
where I could not only leverage my Java knowledge learning other OOPS
languages like J2ME, Objective C, Silverlight etc. but also learnt
security aspects which are essential for any secure mobile app
development.
The Turning Points
Joining Symantec and working of VIP Access project gave a great boost to
my carrier where I could not only leverage my Java knowledge but also
became a security expert.

My current job not only gives me opportunity to work on latest mobile
technologies and platforms but has also helped me to enhance my security
knowledge.

seeing a major shift to held devices including smart phones and tablets.
This is a change both in consumer market as well as enterprise markets.

as well as tools and SDKs to develop apps on the same.
