The Journey So Far
After my graduation from IT-BHU I joined Atrenta, Noida based EDA company, where I spent 2 years. In the need to learn more and to explore Software industry, I switched to Adobe and since 2006 I have been part of the Adobe. Currently working as a developer for FrameMaker product of Adobe.
Currently working at
I am a C/C++ developer and currently I work on Windows Platform. With previous Employer I got the chance to work on Linux system and that was great learning experience.
My brother - Being senior to me in school and same college, he was always there as constant source of inspiration. His knowledge, zeal to learn more and to do something different is what attracted a lot.
Current and Previous Responsibilities
Currently I work for entire product's development and have touched lots of areas in the code. In previous company I was assigned a part of product and my developer skills were limited to writing small codes.
Points of inflection
It happened in 2009 when I decided to explore my hobby, playing guitar, and took 6 months of leave of absence from Adobe. I am back to work but my heart has found passion towards music and since then I have been learning music.
Most Important Lessons
Be true to yourself and try to do what you want to.
Plans for the Future
No idea. I haven't thought that much. May be doing music :)
Most Important Decisions
Joining Adobe was one important decision in my life. Its a good company and gives lots of space to you as an employee as well as allows you to enhance your skills.
A Fine Balance:
Trying not to manage to hard. I follow my routine and generally things fall in place.
