We had posted some questions to Santhosh as a part of his #ATAMyStory
1. Why do you think speaking at #ATAGTR2019 really matters to you?
To be blunt and brutally honest, I am speaking at ATAGTR2019 for several reasons in order.
1. Aditya Garg is a great personality who touched my life by just existing on the tiny planet.
2. I care for the education of people around the globe and love to speak whenever I can. Be reminded that, I speak a lot and people call me as an “Extrovert”. It’s funny because people called me an “Introvert” during my academics.
3. It matters to me because I feel very good and happy when I speak at ATAGTR2019 whenever I can.
2. Do you think that organizations and individuals should go out and mingle more in community programs ?
Intrinsic motivation is the best thing to stay happy in whatever you do apart from paying the bills. And I believe that when you help yourselves by exposing yourself to the outer world and conferences can be one of the places to avail this benefit and see if it adds value to your life. I totally understand that it’s your personal space and choice, but allow yourself to know yourself more by participating in this if you really feel like. The more you expose yourself to the beauty of this world, you will grow. Choose your style of growing though. And the best aspect of attending ATAGTR2019 would be, you will meet me and talk a lot about any subject you wish to 😉
3. While practice makes all of us perfect, share an everyday practice that has made things better for you at work
Practice hasn’t made me perfect, but happy! If I see myself being “perfect” then I would stop learning and digging deeper to discover the beauty the learning has to offer.
I practice letting go and forgiving everyday.
I practice testing everyday.
I practice coding everyday.
I practice thinking everyday.
I love reading documentation everyday.
I practice bridging the gap between the team.
I practice writing via blog.
Finally, but one of the top priority is enjoying little things.
