For 2018 my promise was to revamp my blog so that I can start blogging once again. And voila! I did it. 2017 was full of ups and downs for me and I’ll start with the very beginning.
2017 started on a high when we were in talks with a company for acquisition but then eventually it failed as the party backed out at the very last minute. Fast forward -> our product VCA [Video Content Analysis] was still in novice stage and we were trying to make it big. After showing couple of demos to some of the big clients we were unable to impress them let alone to get them talk about funding.
March of 2017 saw us working on the prototype for our new product which we named as “ANY TIME WI-FI” and after near about one month of R&D we delievered the project to one of the largest beverage maker in the country at a nominal cost. It went through lot of hiccups but finally we delievered it. Personally, I learnt a lot from the same project.
Later on I got an offer from Radiowalla [http://radiowalla.in] which were looking to exploit the same technology I was working with in the retail sector. Finally I joined Radiowalla in April but the real work started mid of July. As things were happening in my professional life, my personal life was on a roller-coaster ride itself.
I moved out of my flat and started living with Aadi and Veer [founders of Neuron [https://neuronme.com]] and boy! we used to have epic fun everyday. 4 bachelors living together and having time of their lives.
In middle of all this I started dating this beautiful girl and things just look that they were “meant” to be. Skipping that part 😛
In August Radiowalla gave me an offer to move to Bangalore since their head-office was located there and they wanted the dev team to work in close co-hesion with the rest of the guys. Finally on 7th of August we [Me and my colleague Sudhanshu] landed at Bangalore Airport. And somewhere I knew it’s going to be LEGEN—WAIT FOR IT–DARY.
Meanwhile, I got to know that I scored well in my masters exams and cleared my master by an aggregate of 82%.
It’s been nearly 5 months now and most of the time I have travelled around Bangalore and went to ‘n’ number of client meeting aside from the coding work I do. All in all good fun.
Oh! I nearly forgot Radiowalla’s team. Trust me in my 3 years of professional experience I haven’t seen such a dynamic team. Radiowalla office to be honest is all about Work Hard and Party Harder! [Though things do get boring at times :P] . Music loving people… Long chats over breaks …. overall I just think this is JUST the right place for me with few other scope for improvement.
Also, I travelled a bit this year. Some of the places I went to are as follows :
- Nainital [ Going every year since 2009]
I specially remember my Manipur trip since I went there to give lecture to 2nd and 3rd year students on Basics of Cloud Technology and in return I got to see their beautiful campus and nearby areas.
As the year was coming to an end. I got re-united with my Santa Workshop family [ref : http://aniketmaithani.net/lesson/santa-workshop-detailed-experience/]
I am associated with DeePositive foundation since 2014. For those who don’t know much about it please check the link :https://www.facebook.com/pg/DeePositive.Foundation
All in all it was year full of fun, masti, heartbreaks [yeah that thing didn’t last long, but I am keeping my fingers crossed] and obviously a lot of learning.

Till the next time. Adios!
