My SCN experience:

I track SCN space quite actively especially when I am in deep trouble 😉 . However, events like BIF keeps me engaged with SCN. I ensure to introduce my team members to SCN as there is huge information available right at our fingertips. With events like BIF, now, everyone can start writing and break the writer’s block.

I appreciate zeal and contribution of all members, moderators and mentors for making it such a gigantic knowledge repository. Also blogs like How to make a lot of friends on the SCN in just one hour as a fresher by Sven Ringling  continually improves SCN.


About Me:

I am Abhijeet Mukkawar. Currently, I am working with Infosys Ltd, Pune (India) in SAP NetWeaver space. I am happy that my job enables me to resolve lots of business complexities using IT enablement. Throughout my experience, I constantly moved around technologies. And so did I in my career. After starting my career in IT, twice I drifted to other thing and thought of giving up the job.

     Once it was for a career in Financial Planning and Advisory, but thanks to 2008 financial crisis that before I quit IT, the dark stories of financial world dawned on me. Another time, when I started teaching Physics in 10+2 classes. Well, this thing still haunts me and, one day, I might go back to pursue it.

     I had my schooling from my home town, a small town, in Maharashtra state of India. Really, never thought I would come out of there as I was dropped from the college once for bunking exams for cricket tournament 😐 . (Well I resumed the college a year after and did enough to go to University, and, hence, writing this BIF).

So, taking one step at a time.

In response to an earlier The specified item was not found. , I will answer following questions:

1)     How do you deal with criticism?

I take it very positively  (quite a bookish answer 😛 ) . Well, genuinely, it used to put me off . But this was in the past.  In 2009, something very interesting happened to me….  I got married ….hmmmm…and that made me so patient that I think, now, I can listen to any length of criticism as a lullaby  and pick up only the part I really need to improve on  . So, when criticised, I read the important part and duck other emotions in it.


2)     How you came to know about SCN

Don’t quite remember it, but must have been the instance when I was deep down in the chasm of anxiety


3)     What make you laugh?

I think nothing can make me laugh (and embarrassed at the same time) more than my own silly coding mistakes. And I ensure to laugh all the time 😛


Before wrapping up, uploading few snaps from my recent hobby – amateur photography 😉 – of visit to London.

    Wow! Beautiful pictures from India! And I still haven’t been there 😥

    Thanks for this interesting post and I’m very glad you liked that blog post of mine. I do really feel chuffed 😳

    Always love to see cool pics of the Tower and Tower Bridge, although I can walk there in 15mins. Just love that area. The Riverside opposite the Tower with all teh buzz and free cultural events must be one of teh best places on the planet to be in Summer 😎

    Hi Abhijeet,

    Its nice reading your blog.

    1)     How do you deal with criticism?

    I take it very positively  (quite a bookish answer 😛 ) . Well, genuinely, it used to put me off . But this was in the past.  In 2009, something very interesting happened to me….  I got married ….hmmmm…and that made me so patient that I think, now, I can listen to any length of criticism as a lullaby  and pick up only the part I really need to improve on  . So, when criticised, I read the important part and duck other emotions in it.

    I like the way you handle the criticism. It is universal fact but felt something new while reading it. Yes everyone must learn from their mistakes 🙂

    Regards

    Hi Abhijeet,

    I liked this sentence very much! “I track SCN space quite actively especially when I am in deep trouble”. Yes. You are perfect. SCN is our trouble destroyer! If any trouble is there in our project or in our coding immediately if you post the queries in SCN. We get at-least one response immediately within few seconds. You willn’t see that kind of enthusiastic members in other community. I have great experience in SCN now and understand new things. Very interesting to learn thing daily and your pictures are terrific and pleasant. Thanks for contributing in SCN and sharing your thoughts. Keep up the good work. Waiting to see more from you. All the best! Keep Rocking!

    Regards,

    Hari Suseelan
