For many users, they prefer to engage with you via live chat support. It’s direct and quick, giving them instant gratification for finding a solution to their problem. For those using Jira Service Desk as their ITSM solution, there hasn’t been a Jira live chat support solution contained within the Atlassian ecosystem – until now.</p> <p>Earlier this year I shared <a href="https://www.ravisagar.in/notes/do-you-want-have-live-chat-jiraservicedesk-and-slackhq-using-chatlio-jirioapp-apps">one solution</a> and during this session I will talk about one more :)</p> <p><strong>Date</strong><br /> 1st Aug 2018, 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM</p> <p><strong>Event details</strong></p> <p>RSVP here: <a href="https://aug.atlassian.com/events/details/atlassian-london-presents-london-aug-1st-august-goodman-masson">https://aug.atlassian.com/events/details/atlassian-london-presents-lond…</a></p> <p><strong>Venue</strong><br /><a href="https://goo.gl/maps/bWHkYA9nfjw">Goodman Masson, 120 Aldersgate Street, London, EC1A 4JQ</a></p> <p>There will be pizza and drink and of course we will go to the pub after the event ;)</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-taxonomy-vocabulary-1 field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/653" hreflang="en">Share</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/atlassian" hreflang="en">Atlassian</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/jira-service-desk" hreflang="en">JIRA Service Desk</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/public-speaking" hreflang="en">Public Speaking</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/666" hreflang="en">Live Chat</a></div> </div> <div class="empty-geofield"></div> Wed, 25 Jul 2018 16:34:53 +0000 ravisagar 730 at https://www.ravisagar.in Speaking at AUG London - 24th October 2017 https://www.ravisagar.in/blog/speaking-aug-london-24th-october-2017 <span>Speaking at AUG London - 24th October 2017</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Last week on 24th October I spoke at Atlassian User Group London meetup about Elements which is the new app from Valiantys. This app's aim is to help user manage simple lists without using Sub-tasks because they can be bit complicated for doing simple tasks. In cases when users just want to manage a simple list of items like to-do, definition of done or any kind of checklist using sub-tasks can be cumbersome.</p> <p>This event happened at Telegraph office "The Telegraph 111 Buckingham Palace Road, Victoria London, SW1W 0DT" which is an amazing office. I really enjoyed talking there. The good part is that there were lot of questions from the audience and it means that people are interested in the features that this app offers.</p> <p>Here is the link to the event: <a href="https://aug.atlassian.com/events/details/atlassian-london-presents-london-aug-october-24th-the-telegraph">https://aug.atlassian.com/events/details/atlassian-london-presents-lond…</a></p> <p>Here are the tweets from the event.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr" xml:lang="en">From <a href="https://twitter.com/Valiantys?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@Valiantys</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/ravisagar?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@ravisagar</a> talks about how to manage lists in <a href="https://twitter.com/JIRA?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@JIRA</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/TelegraphEng?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@TelegraphEng</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/LondonAUG?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#LondonAUG</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/Atlassian?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@Atlassian</a> <a href="https://t.co/D1PiyzL0w2">pic.twitter.com/D1PiyzL0w2</a></p> <p>— London AUG (@LondonAUG) <a href="https://twitter.com/LondonAUG/status/922899848826966017?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">October 24, 2017</a></p></blockquote> <script async="" src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script><p> I also got this nice warm cosy blanket as a gift for speaking at the event.

Since last one and a half year I am taking my work not quite seriously. I work only 5 days a week and don't even open my laptop on weekends. This is working quite well for me. I feel much better now as I have less to worry. Working less doesn't mean less business. We are doing pretty good, my company Sparxsys is doing great and I am happy about it. Just that I am not to ambitious these days and I make small achievable targets. My idea is to feel good about whatever little I achieve and not set very high goals.</p> <p>Last year was not very good health wise, I didn't go to gym regularly and I gained few kilos. This year I have made lot of plans for myself that may require giving up some pleasures but I know in the end it will be all worth it.</p> <h2>My 2016 plans</h2> <p>These are plans for this year. People say you should not share your plans with everyone but I don't know how sharing it with other stop me from achieving them.</p> <p><strong>1. Read 24 books</strong><br /> I recently purchase a Kindle and that is good enough reason to indulge myself in reading. I have been reading actively for the past few months but I need to speed up and read more books. 2 books per months seems like not difficult to me. I have created a new page to list all the <a href="https://www.ravisagar.in/books">books</a> that I have read.</p> <p><strong>2. Get 6 pack abs</strong><br /> In past I have managed to built few packs but never really complete 6 packs. This year I have decided that it is now or never. Get back in shape and get at least 6 packs.</p> <p><strong>3. Less beer</strong><br /> I really like beer, may be I am addicted to it but I don't know why I have it almost everyday. I know it is not good, it adds fat to waist. This year I have decided that I will have it not more than twice a week, less is of course better.</p> <p><strong>4. Cycle and running twice per week</strong><br /> I own a road bike and recently purchased MTB too. I am planning to get more active on cycling and ride at least twice per week. I haven't been doing any running recently but now thinking of starting running twice per week.</p> <p><strong>5. Improve my public speaking skills</strong><br /> I do lot of corporate trainings and speaking in front of 50+ people continuously for 2-4 days is quite normal for me. I feel I can improve a lot here, it will no only help me professionally but personally I also want to become better speaker. I feel good when on stage and it give me high. I am thinking of joining Toast Masters club, I went to their session in the recent past and really liked it. Most likely I will join them as a member too.</p> <p><strong>6. Continue learning French</strong><br /> I joined french classes last year and I really learned a lot, this year I will continue to learn this language and I wish to converse with someone entirely in French this year. I joined one institute called Just French and it is quite good.</p> <p><strong>7. Learn guitar</strong><br /> I recently dusted off my old guitar and started practicing simple tunes by watching youtube videos but this year I want to learn from some professional. May be I will join some classes.</p> <p><strong>8. Grow my company</strong><br /> This year I want to scale up a little bit and grow my company. I want to increase my business both money wise and also want to grow my team. We are doing quite good but there should be hunger and desire to do even more. I want to keep that desire alive.</p> <p><strong>9. Start building a product and launch it</strong><br /> I have always been into service industry and our major company comes from service only but I really wish to build a product this year and launch it.</p> <p><strong>10. Write another book in 2016</strong><br /> I have to admit that writing a book and getting it published was one of the most satisfying experience in my life. I was quite happy when my book "<a href="https://www.ravisagar.in/blog/mastering-jira-book-ravi-sagar-sparxsys-solutions">Mastering JIRA</a>" was published. This year too I plan to write another book. Writing a book is a wonderful way to learn something and also to share it with the world plus it really establishes your credibility in the market.</p> <p>This is probably not the complete list, I have other things in mind too but these ten items are my top priority goals. All the actions that I take and all my work would be focused to achieve these goals and as you can see most of these are personal goals and some of the goals will help me both personally and professionally. I believe everyone should plan their life with written goals.</p> </div> <span><span lang="" about="/users/ravisagar" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">ravisagar</span></span> <span>Tue, 02/16/2016 - 13:26</span> <div class="field field--name-taxonomy-vocabulary-1 field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/2016" hreflang="en">2016</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/goals" hreflang="en">goals</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/cycling" hreflang="en">cycling</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/jira" hreflang="en">Jira</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/drupal" hreflang="en">Drupal</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/books" hreflang="en">books</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/french" hreflang="en">French</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/guitar" hreflang="en">guitar</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/sparxsys" hreflang="en">sparxsys</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/public-speaking" hreflang="en">Public Speaking</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/toastmaster" hreflang="en">toastmaster</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/just-french" hreflang="en">just french</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-featured-blog field--type-boolean field--label-hidden field--item">Off</div> <div class="field field--name-field-blog-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/ravi_pune.jpg" width="1600" height="602" alt="Ravi JIRA Training in Pune" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </div> </div> <ul class="links inline list-inline"><li class="statistics-counter">2400 views</li></ul><section> <h2>Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=499&amp;2=comment&amp;3=comment" token="oxFub14Lp-DJHR7AngLpX4KONA_F2ewQzqhWGNM5NPY"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> Tue, 16 Feb 2016 13:26:56 +0000 ravisagar 499 at https://www.ravisagar.in Free Drupal Training and Workshop in Delhi & NCR https://www.ravisagar.in/blog/free-drupal-training-and-workshop-delhi-ncr <span>Free Drupal Training and Workshop in Delhi &amp; NCR</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>UPDATE 2017: We are no longer doing this workshop in Delhi, however please follow this blog for more exciting news.
