This is the second last day of mine at Vinsol. And right now I am trying to write a post defining that I am leaving Vinsol tomorrow and going to join another promising startup SapnaSolutions at Pune very soon.
I spent more then 4 years in Vinsol. The time here was good, filled with different kind of experiences. I am looking forward to a great experience at SapnaSol as well. SapnaSolutions is also devoted to RoR development and also deals in mobile app. Lets see if I can also get some exposure of Mobile app there.
While I am switching I have decided to set some goals for me.
- I will try to post more techy code stuffed posts of my daily encounters which I sometimes try to escape from sometime.
- Learn 4-Wheeler Driving and own a Driving License.
- I would work in refining my skills as the Product Owner/Project Manager.
- I always wanted to develop a product of my own I have several ideas in mind. By next year I ll have to decide which could be the most feasible and promising idea and work over it . Also have to work on finding finances.
I hope in next year I will be writing some posts updating everyone on these points. Keep in touch…
We at Vinsol have been trying to find the best suitable strategy which merge transparently in Vinsol work environment. Manik calls it XPrum, which sounds kewl. Its our extract of practices from Scrum and XP.
Extreme Programming (XP) is a little different approach towards agile programming what we usually follow at Vinsol. It focuses on simplicity basically to an extent that it advocate use of paper more than any technical tools. We realized its much more handy and visible to notice so we adopted it immediately. We liked the workboard for ticktes idea of SCRUM so we have applied them for our XP stories.
The scene at vinsol can be seen in these pics…
Constant feedback & communication is key for both strategies so our major focus is that. And our goal is to estimate better and accurately and deliver the best code.
Coming year our focus will be more on BDD, Quality of Code and Developer’s satisfaction. If we achieve these three, I hope the clients will ultimately encounter better experience with Vinsol.
First Barcamp now Ruby Fun Day. Seems like Delhi is becoming the hub of all the un-conference startups. After the huge success of BarcampDelhi, Delhites are now bringing Ruby Funday to India. Its the first Ruby and Rails Full Day event in India.
The Ruby/Rails lovers dream come true event is going to happen on 22nd of November 2008. So please mark the Saturday in your calender to go to Impetus Technologies at Noida, where the event is taking place.
Hoping for a day full of fun and learning as there are many Geeky speakers enrolling each day.
Few weeks before Vinsol has stepped into new a new phase of ROR encouragement. We had our first ever workshop on Ruby On Rails in an Institute. Vinsol organised an elaborated presentation on 17th March followed by a one day workshop the very next day.
The institute in picture here is DEI ie Dayalbagh Educational Institute, Agra, India. It was supposed to be such an overwhelming moment for me to present ROR in DEI as this institute has special place in my life.Yes i am a product of DEI itself and just luv everything about it like i do about Rails.
After completing my B.Sc+ M.Sc. from DEI, I always wished to stay in contact somehow. And recently when i visited My Dissertation Project Guide Dr.Gursaran and talked about Ruby On Rails I can see my dream turn into reality. He was so much interested when i proposed the idea of a presentation on ROR that he himself made it a point to organize it. Thanks a lot to him for making it a success.
I was not able to go there due to preparations of another major event of my life ‘My Wedding’ . Even though i am happy as Akhil ,Sur and Hemant made a point to make it a success. They did a great job. With at lest 35 people attending the workshop and showing great interest i believe the future of Rails in DEI is bright.
We are getting tremendous response from the students the people are floored by capacity of Ruby+Rails and yes Sur’s charm also(he s getting lots of response from gals there ).
