Bicycling to office - Hercules Ryders

Now more than 7 months into bicycling office, am seeing growing interest in folks who wants to ride to office, indeed a better choice for health, wealth and environment.

Now an official parking slot for bicycle is coming up, (yet to be announced from the concerned people officially, since at-least a year).

Plus I sold my Fiero bike and don’t feel the need of it :). <-Milestones-> Riding to Manyata and back (10 km in half an hour, how long does it take for you in car :)? ) Riding in the rain wearing rain coat (realizing a dream)

Formatting a Datapower

The datapower box that our team owns is like rented a technology showroom, where different teams request access to the box and we make domains for them where they play with the box and then finally produce something that they would like to show to customers/partners.

Once the box is back after a reboot, the box is just like fresh from factory, you would have to login using the factory set username and password and acc

SOA Governance sessions popped up interesting discussions, from technology, organization culture, organizational structuring, governance for an organization with spaghetti like structure, COE etc. DataPower received admiration from its ease of use and wire speed processing. WTC also provided participants chances to take a shot at certifications for free, so my self and Aru (Arumugam Maruthanayagam ) went to a partner to give a boost to the test takers and how to plan for certifications.

Then there were prizes for those who had maximum marks for certification done on a day. Pleased I was to see one of my favorite folks from that team
