3ree years

On 16th of June, i completed my 3ree years as a Professional in IT industry.

That was the date when i joined one of the leading services company, Cognizant Technology Services. I was put into Mainframe Domain. My first thoughts on knowing that was, 'not at all good', caz i can see people from Civil background put into Java/DotNet/etc. But me, who has atleast little knowledge in those technologies, was forced to Mainframe. First two months were completely dedicated to training in Cognizant Academy, Siruseri (it was then still partly constructed site) in chennai. But as the training proceeded in MF020 (thats actually our Training Batch Name... missing those days guys), with fun-fun-fun-learning-exams, it all looked superb. Those COBOL, VSAM, SECTION, DB2, etc, etc (i dont remember much of those now :( ), were so much exciting. We had full fun in those 2wo months together. Cannot forget those GoldMiner, WordGame, Operation US, Outing, cultural event, all evergreen moments. Then one month into the MetLife Maintenance Project, where i was pretty much like being-in-an-unknow-territory. All those Abends, Lotus Notes, One COBOL Program, Onsite Call, and little discussion about the new expected Enhancement Project on our Domain, was really having fun at Navalur. Though its not too many years passed, i can manage to remember that N7 bus which i always board from Saidapet. It was nice until i got a call from Oracle Business Accelerators Group, where now i'm, as An Applications Database Administrator, where its toooooo good. Believe me when i say, Its too much fun out here. And hoping to continue the fun for years to come.

Got lot of new good friends in both the firms in this little short term in IT industry. Hoping to keep in touch with all of them ever. One Major change you'll notice, if you have seen me in college and if you have not seen me in work environment, is the calmness. And i actually lost the challenge from my colleague here, of being calm in one place for 5mins. I'm missing those calmness, but i'm enjoying this way much more than being calm. will end this with ,

"All fun... We're in PineApple..."
As an Apps DBA supporting around 100+ people out here, i atleast chat (officially) with atleast 25 different people in a day. One little thing which i follow to make my work little more interesting is that, whoever thanks me for the favor/work which i did, to the first person to thank in a day i will reply with ".. have an Awesome Day" at the end of the conversation, and to the second person ".. have a Superb Day" and to all those who thank me before 11ven 33ree AM ".. have a nice Day". There is no sentiment or anything attached to that. Actually, it makes the kind of work i do and the conversation little more interesting, And i personally feel good and look forward for those two people everyday. Hoping to continue this stuff always. lets see.. :)
