I had been trying to write this blog since I joined Aricent. But, for past few years, Aricent kept me so busy to such extent that I couldn’t even find time to write about itself.

When I was at school almost all computers I could see was running Windows. I used to get excited every time when I could hear the Windows Welcome Music. I got fascinated by Microsoft & it’s founder (World’s Richest Man of that time) Bill Gates and it’s no wonder he became one of my early [...]
