A Fine Balance:
It is difficult but I try to maintain the balance on day to day basis. At times I'm asked to stretch in office. Then I make sure that I give more time to personal life when work load is minimal. It is learning process & depends on how do I see myself in the project in terms of involvement.
Tech trends to watch out for
Cloud Computing is the next big thing in IT industry. It is already creating a lot of scope in terms of distributed testing. Also the field of ETL / Data warehousing interests me. I would be very much interested in working in these fields.
