Belated Wishes

This is the first post of 2014. I should have done a new year post in January itself. I did not write it then, kept postponing it, and we are in the second half of April. But, better late than never.

It went really fast, 2013. On the personal front, I managed to write 30 blog posts, upload four translations on and release two short films on YouTube. Undoubtedly if there was one thing that distinguished the year, it was my serious foray into short films. At work, amongst other things, I could lead the effort to make the first customer go live on the re-worked warehousing solution 4S eLog, front-ended the technical team in the acquisition due diligence, and after Four Soft became Kewill, transitioned to being the head of Product Development at Kewill India.

For 2014, I have modest personal targets. I plan 20 blog posts, 8 translations, and four short films. I did not spend a lot of my spare personal time on coding and I intend to make up for that this year. Let's see if I can make the first releases of two applications this year. And also a few data analysis type programs which will be on Ms Excel, Ruby and R. On the creative side, I wish to explore the genre of magical realism and hope to have some output in it. Two stories, hopefully I can pull off. At work, there is a lot to accomplish, amongst which the chief one is help realize the new Kewill reference architecture. My new boss is Greg Carter, the CTO and he is like the supportive oxygen system that has been missing in my life for years and years now.

As I write this post, there is an element of upbeat mood in me as I believe that these are good times for all. An extremely belated happy and successful 2014 wishes to all of you.
