Exciting projects in pipeline

I am excited about many new projects which will be starting soon.

I was curious about my domain names
as they contain java which is a trademark of Oracle corporation.  After having some discussions, receiving one mail from Oracle legal team and digging into information, I got to the conclusion that I can keep these sites with the current names if I do not sell anything from those sites, if I write a clear message telling I am not representing this trademark and if I am doing this for the community.

I plan to start these three projects as video tutorials for the respective subject.  We also have our NUGNagpur project for NetBeans Platform Certified Engineer certification where participants of the NetBeans Platform Associate program from Nagpur will be creating open source projects using NetBeans Platforms.  We plan to start this project from 29 May 2011.

Back in Action

It has been 6 months that I haven't written on this blog.  Now I am back again, and I think I will keep writing about my passion and dreams here now onwards.

Blogger has provided new cool designs in the Templates section and I tried one of the simpler designs on this blog today.  Just to remember how this blog looked like earlier I kept a snapshot of the older design which you can see with this post.  Now the blog is in my favorite font Georgia thanks to Blogger team for making layout and design so easy.

This was a hectic weekend for me.  Spent two days taking interviews for my company in Kolkata and landed back to Nagpur at night.

One important take away for me in this trip was the opportunity, to get to know, three dynamic personalities in our company.  It seldom happens while work that you get chance to discuss about work and ideas in a leisurely way.  This trip gave me the opportunity to discuss my wild #Java ideas with the Java man in company who was passionate enough to join me.  Next I got to know how things work in the new company and found that some ground rules remain same.

As always, interviewing Java candidates was sometimes thought provoking and sometime hilarious.  I must mention one candidate who gave me idea of deep cloning in a way even I have not thought.  It was a eureka moment and a moment of joy for me.

I think this is enough for the first post after so many days, will come back with more news and ideas soon.
