First Project in MS Delivered…

Today my first project in MS was completed and delivered. It is amazing how the whole development process works in Microsoft. Working for world’s biggest software development company is an experience in itself. It is amazing how the whole development process is managed. Do you know there are more than 12000 members in Developer division? Imagine any change I do can affect the whole product. There is a whole quality gate process which makes sure no one breaks the whole product unit level code, more on that some other time. Today is time to open Champagne bottle. J

Looking forward: 2007

2007 has arrived. First of all wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year.

I try to make New Year resolutions every year and then I break them within a week or so. So this year I am going to try something different. I will just list of things I will try to do this year.

Live Healthy: Exercise as frequently as possible, Eat healthy food as much as possible.

Work Smart: Manage time well, delegate work where possible and learn from people around (I work with very smart people) J

Study hard: My MBA enters into electives phase and my Dean says “You will not graduate if you take 15 electives“, I am taking 16. So I need to prove him wrong. I need to study real hard.

Keep learning: Get up and be prepared to learn something new every day, read more books and keep tab on various blogs. If possible take some Golf and Dance classes J

Keep Blogging: My new passion is blogging, last year was big; 2007 should be bigger.
