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.

One ship drives east and another drives west
With the selfsame winds that blow.
Tis the set of the sails
And not the gales
Which tells us the way to go.
Like the winds of the seas are the ways of fate,
As we voyage along through the life:
Tis the set of a soul
That decides its goal,
And not the calm or the strife.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Synopsis

Your circumstances don't decide anything. What you do with your circumstances does. What happens to you doesn't decide, what you do with what happens to you does decide the course of your fate.

Calamity hits all and hits hard. The same winds blow on all. Some reach their port where others drift endlessly. The one type is destroyed, the other stands tall. The difference? The strength of the spirit.

It's what's in your head that will determine your future, not what's outside it. It's the set of the sails (the direction or goal you choose for yourself), and not the gales (the winds, the circumstances of life that toss you about here or there) that will decide. It's the set of the soul (determination of the spirit) that tells its goal (ultimate outcome).
