Feels good to wear a suit, it automatically boosts your confidence by 500% but of course it is lot of hassle to wear it and when wearing a suite you a little conscious as well about your appearance, but sometimes I do think that we should dress up well everyday when going to work. Your appearance does make a big difference.

Wow, can't believe 2018 is over, well almost. Not many days left. So many things happening in life. I made lot of plans earlier this year and honestly I have mixed feelings about my plans. Overall I would say I am happy but I could have done much much better but anyways, atleast I am aware of it.

As compared to 2017 this year was way better in terms of what I was able to achieve. So that is good news.

As of now I have just too many things in my mind but I need to spend some time and organise my thoughts. I used to write a lot, I mean a lot. When I say writing I mean actual writing on paper with pen. For me writing and taking notes has always helped me a lot. Whenever I make plans by writing I do end up doing them or atleast attempt finishing them.

I still remember lot of plans I made in 2011 and after 7 years I can't believe I have done so much. One thing I wish is that I can be more organised and I hope in the next few weeks before the end of this year I get more clarity.

I will make another post where I will review all the things I wanted to do this year and will wither carry forward them to next year or postpone them or remove them completely.

In 2019 I really want to do a lot more for sure. One thing which I am not doing at all for the past 4 years and especially last 2 years is taking care of my health. So health would now be my first and most important priority for every year now. I may join a gym, start running or cycling but I will make sure I spend time on my health. For the next few years I will probably not burden myself by doing too many things. I will do less things and do them better.

Let us see how it goes.

Hi swentel! I just read your article and it's awesome!

I don't work on cloud a lot which is fine but from time to time every other week I do log in to one of my cloud instance to check few things here and there or to do some research but that's it. Cloud and Server were quite similar but now a days especially in the past 1 years they offer different features. Usually Cloud brings out new features and then those are pushed to Jira Server.

So long story short I came to know about these personal projects in Jira and Roadmaps on Jira Cloud and today while creating a new project I got this new option to create a next-gen project. I thought why not record my experience of exploring this new feature on Jira Cloud.

So watch this video as I experience this new feature :)




Hi swentel! I just read your article and sorry just checking with another post as well.

I recently announced that I will be doing my engineering all over again and also share my learnings by creating youtube videos and blogs as well. My dream is to write books on engineering subjects. Lets see :)

I am starting with Algorithm Design and Analysis and here are the video so far.

As more videos are posted on youtube or any other resource that I create, I will update this page.

Have fun :)

Yes you read it correctly I am actually redoing my engineering again almost after 20 years. I am not really enrolling myself in a course or going back to university but I am actually relearning the things that I learned long long back again.

I made a video explain what are my plans. You can watch that video if you want but I am anyways sharing my plan in this blog.

So my plan is simple and long term. I want to study engineering subjects again and while I am studying them I will also make a video about what I learned. Now this will give a good reason to learn them properly as I will be learning it with the intention to teach it.

I started learning Algorithm Design and Analysis and really enjoying it. I also made a video on Asymptotic Analysis today, honestly I had some difficulty making that video because I was struggling to be technically correct and use the right terminology. 20 years is a long time but it didn't take me long to catch up.

My intention is to continue making good simple videos and my main objective is not to make videos but to learn. These days it is so easy to get clarity on a topic. There are plenty of videos online and tons of resources. While I was doing engineering the internet connection was still 56 kbps and there was no youtube. I want to make videos mainly because I want to share them and I will be learning more carefully. Second I will get feedback from lot of people which is always good.

So I hope my plan goes well, I want to take it easy and not worry too much about it. I just want to learn old subjects for the pure joy of learning and sharing. Simple.

Apart from engineering subjects I will continue to make videos on Jira and Drupal plus anything that excites me really.

Ok that is it for now. Have a nice day.
