This blog is about three things: Consult, Code, and Coach.
Consult: I work with C-level executives to solve their business problems with technology. Startups, VC firms, IT Service companies, Government departments — I have worked with them all. I share what I learn.
Code: Twenty years ago, I wrote a FORTRAN program in WordStar. Languages changed. Editors changed. Fascination hasn't. I share what I code.
Coach: I was lucky to find fantastic mentors who shaped my perspectives. Now, juniors walk up to me for similar guidance. I got freely. I give freely. I share what I know.
Read me. Don't classify me, I'm not a genre - Carlos Fuentes
I was productive in 2018. I am happy to finish the year with satisfaction.
Lessons I learned on this topic from a decade of blogging.
Starting point for adult learning is reading. Pocket app is the best tool to save articles and read them in batches.
All abstractions are useful within a context. This is true in life as much as in technology.
Focus on building financial confidence, not financial freedom. When you have financial confidence, you can generate 4 types of income.
Leadership is holistic. Leaders should lead with humility and confidence.

Reputation and respect are worth more than gold - Bible
Joseph and I worked together early in his career when his excellent technical skills, can-do attitude and great work ethic were a hard-to-beat combination. He has grown into a leader who inspires not only with his friendly and infectiously positive disposition, but also with his analytical and technical abilities.Sastry Tumuluri Covansys Limited
Joseph is a multi-faceted person, working with him is great fun and learning too. He is master of many arts. He is one of very few talented persons who are ready to work outside their comfort zone. He is very technical and result oriented person and once he takes up any job or challenge, be rest assured that the job is done. I myself has witnessed it many times during my stint at iGATE.Guru Murty iGATE Global Solutions
Joseph is one of those rare persons, who despite all their knowledge are full of humility. An innovator who understands the strength of process flow and thinks one level ahead. His contribution to Government of India's first successful mission mode project MCA21 is immense.Anil Kumar Bhardwaj Director, Government of India
