Blog It Forward – Kannan Ramaswamy
If you are one like me, waiting to start blogging in SCN then this is for you. Blog It Forward Challenge by xMoshe Naveh (Old Acct). I was BIFed by Jason Cao in his BIF Blog. If you want me to Blog It Forward to you please comment below. Also update the Blog It Forward Chain once you post your BIF blog.
My name is Kannan Ramaswamy. I used to play lot of video games as a kid. Like most of you gamers, I had a childhood dream of becoming a game developer(I really don’t know what that position is). Then I choose to graduate as a Computer Science Engineer which I thought is closely related to programming which in turn is related to writing games. I am a data warehouse developer now. I like SCN with this new mission, badges and reputation system. I love the idea of gamification, after all we still are kids from inside.
Taj Mahal, Agra, India – One of the seven wonders
A fun fact about my country:
India has the second largest population in the world, its culturally rich and diverese. There are 18 officials languages and 1,652 dialects and spoken languages so if you cross 400-500 miles you enter another state probably with a new language. One quarter of the worlds work force is from India. India
got its name from the Indus River, which is where earliest settlers made their homes. The Indus valley is one of the world’s earliest urban civilizations.
