Having a strong predilection formathematics from my elementary school days, I always thought of pursuing acareer wherein I get to use and grow my logical skills. And what’s more fittingthan the field of Computers.
With that notion in mind, I enrolled into a WebDesign & Development workshop, introduced by my friend,. It taught me thefundamentals of web, mainly HTML/CSS and by the end of the workshop theinstructor had us build a website of our own and have it hosted on a freeserver. Fascinated by the power and reach of the Internet or the Web, I thoughtof honing my skills further and therefore built a free website for my school,for which I received an appreciation from my school principal and it made me anovernight star in the school. My love for computers has been growing since then. The affection towards computershad left me with no other but one stream to choose for my undergraduatestudies, i.e. Computer Science.
So, I chose Amity University, one among the top private universities in India. Thishelped me to excel in the field of Computer Science and Programming and itsurely lived up to my expectations. The well-built curriculum was so effectualthat it not only helped me get acquainted with the theoretical aspects ofcomputers but also fostered me to implement them practically. From childhood, I always had aknack for spoken languages, but during my bachelor’s I realized that my skillsof using programming languages was nothing short of adept. ProgrammingLanguages like C, C++ were two my favorite ones, so I always preferred usingthese languages for problem solving and implementing Data Structure in collegeLab sessions, which were, by the way, my favorite time of the college. Pleasedby my performance, my lab instructor suggested me to partake in some inter-collegecoding competitions, so I did and won 1st prize in three competitions.
My enthusiasm for Programminglanguages was not limited to college schedules. I actively participated incoding competitions hosted on websites, for instance CodeChef, Hackerrank, etc,to refine my knowledge of basic data structure such as, Stack, Queue, List,Tree, Graph. As the difficulty grew, I had to learn some advanced programmingconcepts like Recursion, Algorithms, Code Optimization, Dynamic Programming.Therefore, I enrolled in an online course named Algorithm Design and Analysison Coursera.com andcompleted the course by scoring good grades in the final assessments. Moreover,in mypre-final year S1 the motivation for coding inspired me to create a coding group,named ‘BugCoder’, in my college, for which I gathered all the codingenthusiasts and instilled the zeal for group coding. To my astonishments, theonline course and the group aided me substantially in improving my knowledge ofAlgorithms and Data Structures thereby improving my performance incompetitions. Now to explore the vast expanses of the computerfield, I interned at Easyway PDDN IT Services after 2nd year,S2 where I underwent training on Qt(C++) and then later worked ondeveloping a cross platform GUI for a Point of Sale system.
This experiencegave me an insight into working in a professional setting. The knowledge I freshmenyear. Impressed by my project the professors asked me to use the application inconducting the pre-placement preparation tests by making me the coordinator of the. Later on, as part of mycurriculum I built an instant messaging app called Babble Messenger for myfinal year project. The app was built specifically for Android platform, whichmade use of Java, PHP/MySQL and Google Cloud Messaging API. The main aim ofthis project was to improve the communication between members of a team workingon a project. Apart from programming languages,subjects like DBMS, Operating Systems, Theory of Automata also interested me alot. My scores in these subjects reflect my interests of these fields.
Oneother subject which caught my attention was Artificial Intelligence and fromhere onwards I thought of learning the bits and pieces of this vast field. So,after my bachelors degree, I wrote a review paper on “Introduction toArtificial Intelligence & Associated Technologies” which discusses themeaning and applications of Artificial Intelligence along with its merits &de-merits. The paper was published by International Journal on Recent andInnovation Trends in Computing and Communication (IJRITCC). Selected in final year campus placement.I joined Virtusa full-time in November 2016 and first went through theirtraining in Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
Here, I worked with RPAtechnology in a tool named Automation Anywhere that is used to automate tasks thatearlier required human interaction. The tool really interested me and I startedexploring the tool. There were then some assignments based on the RPAtechnology, wherein my performance was one of the best in the batch of 60-70employees. After the training period, we were assigned with some finalassignments to solve real-world corporate problems and I topped the finalassessments. Impressed by my skills, thetrainer recommended me a Support-cum-Development project where I needed tohandle development as well as interact with the client. I became a bridgebetween the company’s development team and the client team.
This helped melearn how to interact with clients and understand their business requirementsand then translate them into technical specifications. This significantlyimproved my communication skills. Also I learned the skill of prioritizing andorganizing the tasks duringtimes when I was flooded with the work.
With my growing experience, I was assigned a ‘Knowledge Transfer’ task by mymanager, wherein I had to teach my juniors all that I had learned. This taskfurther increased my learning as I could reflect back on my knowledge. It alsofurther enhanced my leadership abilities. Now that I’ve learned a fewprogramming languages, data structures, algorithms, automation, I am confidentthat I’m ready to grasp the knowledge of the field of Artificial Intelligence.
