Been a while i wrote anything on my blog. So time to review what all i did/happened in 2011.
Firstly “happy new year 2012″ to all my friends whom i did not call/sms/tweet blehh blehh , i was partying with my friends in jungle of Lonavala.
Okey lets begin :-
I have completed almost 1 year here and to be honest second place after www.newsx.com where i have stayed for over an year.
I been told a lot about Chennai, especially about people/food/weather but i am lucky 2 have awesome office folks and friends i managed all of this and had no difficulty in adjusting with/to it. Autowallahs are morons all across India and Chennai is no exception.
FOSS Confs :-
I was also at Software Freedom Day celebration at Jaya FOSS club, Chennai. Thanks to the organizers for this wonderful event.
After Desktop Summit in Aug 2011 i took a week off and traveled few places in europe like Athens/Rome/Madrid, I admit am lazy, still i have put some photos of my trip at http://www.atuljha.com/photos
Before coming to Chennai i was a simple Linux sysadmin and FOSS advocate. Things are better now, I have started coding and working around open source cloud computing platform like openstack and eucalyptus.
I was lucky to contribute few patches 2 Ubuntu openstack packages, any patch is a patch i been told. Most of my contribution are at lauchpad I am currently spending some time playing with juju and owncloud, i will be presenting some workshop on the same in coming months.
Well most of my friends would be surprised to hear that am reading fiction/short stories instead of only reading tech books. I am totally addicted to Khushwant Singh and finished 5 of his books so far, hoping to get few more next month via @flipkart
Well 2012 wishlist includes learning Python and Hadoop apart from travelling some awesome place like Ooty/Kundapura/Munnar/Cochin in India.
Looking forward to make 2012 another rocking year of my life!!
