Well I had expected only around 5-6 people to actually turn up but surprisingly around twice as much turned up. Initially we just had introductions of people who had joined in, but it proved difficult as every time a new member came in, a round of intros started again(Must find a better way to do that next time). So here's a brief outline of the discussion for the benefit of those who couldn't make it.
We were also devoid of any agenda this time hence we started off discussing on… Continue

Yes. I mean it.
My expertise is more than 16 years in technologies and management. I have a vast experience in Web/windows/SOA technologies and very good exposure to designing/architecting large (terabytes) database applications.
I will love to share some of my knowledge free of cost, as long as my time permits.

This is my first post here so I am very excited about joining OCC and I am sure I will get some great advice and opportunities from here.

Reading a very interesting book called "The Long Tail" by Chris Anderson. Anderson is a former editor of Wired magazine and talks about a new economic concept of the "Long Tail" due to the internet. What exactly is the long tail, in layman terms its the revenue from niche choices that reduces the dependency of a business on generating revenue from a select few considered as popular choices. It also means more consumer freedom as he/she is not restricted in terms to accept popular… Continue

I have worked for 3 startups and for 3 large companies.
Startus are crazy as the environment is informal, the top boss is around, everyone know everything, there is no politics, we all work long hours in office, home and markets.
Its like home for people who really love to work, explore, learn, grow and one day become big.
The best time to join a startup is at its birth. But its never too late to join a startup.
I have enjoyed working for a startup… Continue

IT industry has seen so many start -ups turned into giants in very small time span for example Microsoft, Google and Yahoo…but these are few compare to those who have failed to make it.. Entrepreneurship is often a difficult undertaking, as a vast majority of new businesses fail.There are very few professionals who think innovative and try to do something different from their 9 to 5 work responsibilities…at least in India.
Many start-ups die in their early days , reason is… Continue

As training being the important aspect of every recruitment procedure ,it is very important to put a greater emphasis on the part of corporate governance.At This recessionary period the focus of every employee should be in increasing their efficiency and realisation of their goals at workplace.There might be some instances where the corporates may suffer a major set back due to some of the inadequecies that probably would have been neglected at the very initial phase.At this time specially… Continue
