Do you want to become a software developer? Or a better one?

I'll soon be starting an online training course for absolute beginners who want to learn computer programming so as to start a career in software development. This will also be beneficial for those who already studied software engineering or BTech or such but do not understand concepts well, and need expert hands-on help. It will also help already working software engineers understand coding better and do their job better.

To receive an email when the course is launched, please sign up for the mailing list.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost

Synopsis

We usually ask around and do what most of the others are doing.

Commerce or Science? Which one has more scope for my child? Which one should I do?

Should I marry?

Delhi or Pune? Should I move? I am getting an offer from XYZ for Pune. Good?

McKinsey or Goldman Sachs?

Child after 40?

How do I get enlightenment? Mantra chanting or this way or that way?

We go and sit at the feet of others, deferring our own responsibility to stand alone and think for ourselves upon others we deem the know-betters.

In truth, no one really knows anything. There's just those that follow the herd, and those that follow their hearts.

This poem says, "I just followed my heart, even if no one was doing what it said I must do. Never asked for advise of anyone outside myself. And that's made all the difference."
