Points of inflection
yet to experience it.
The Journey So Far
i started my carrier as a software trainer, and then moved to Bangalore in search of IT job.i got my first break in iflex solutions (Oracle financial services) as associate consultant, and then moved to SUNGARD technologies. Now i am placed in GalaxE solutions as a team lead
Areas for the Future
Testing field is huge and at this point of time i can remember few and they are as follows.
1. SOA testing (web apps in sync with legacy system) it has got emerging field.
2. Cloud computing
3. Security of application and the AUT.
Most Important Decisions
Movement from software trainer to software Testing side. it was big decision in my carrier. i would have chooseno Developement, but then my passion towards breaking app was become dream.
Current and Previous Responsibilities
My current role is to handle team as well as project related activities, being a lead i need interect with Client, estimating project estimation, daily/weekly reporting to mgmt, any imepediments with the team members . Earlier i was concerned with my project and my piece of work
My role model is my father, who always believs in extracting information, no matter what field it is.i would say, that way i made my self to follow his foot prints....
I would like to share a lot, but what to share and what not to share, i am not sure at this point of time. if i get a chance then definitely i will share my experience with the people personally.
Most Important Lessons
Try to wrap up with the people you come accros in your day to day activity at office place, share your ideas and grab ideas of others, if you found ideas from different people, and those ideas really makes any difference then implement at work place.
A Fine Balance:
To meet the chalange one should have self organised, and pass on training to whole team. By training to whole team the challenges can be reduces up to great extent.
I would not recomand to any one to choose their carrier. Testing comes out of passion, not by chance.
Plans for the Future
i want to be techno managerial consultant through out my IT carrier.
Currently working at
I am currently handling team at GalaxE solutions (with 9 resources)
1. Impediments if any with the team and with the project related data set up activities.
2. Right resource for Right project
Project Activity:- Project Estimation, Req gethering and reporting to mgmt
i am big fan of Pradeep Soundarajan, i never met a chance to meet him, but he is the guy who really made me feel as an test engineer.
Degrees that Matter
I dont believe in any certification cources which can make some one excel in s/w testing field. it is the attitude which makes a true software test engineer.
Punch line:- To become s/w test engineer one need not required special certification only common sense will do.
