My Training Days......

Though I was a computer engineer by degree, I always hated to become one soon after I joined my college. Ask my friends and you will know how much I hated coding and stuff !!! Seriously it wasn't my thing !  Don't know why,but may be it was due to my first coding practical which I couldn't forget for my entire life !!! It was a simple C program which was about some files & stuff and I couldn't do it. I was dead scared as I thought I would flunk that practical. Though that didn't happen,it had a powerful impact on my perspective of coding. Since then I was always afraid about those practicals. I never tried to become a programmer.I always tried to look at my friends programs and tried to reproduce them in the practicals. I always believed that I would become very bad software engineer. Though I had above average cgpa, I used to think I don't have that exposure which was required.This feeling of mine made me insecure many times and continued to do so even during the placements.But it was life before last two months....


But today I feel very comfortable with coding after two months of training given by my company. I worked hard for the last two months to gain my lost confidence in programming and yea it paid off. It was like 12 hours a day and 6 days a week training. Even though it was quiet stressful at times, now looking back at those days makes me feel that I haven't lost any thing. I was trained on unix, pl/sql programming for Oracle and Java SE,Java EE . The kind of quality they have maintained in terms of faculty was great though the infrastructure at the institute was exactly the opposite !!! So on the whole I had a nice time during the training and I feel its helping me a lot in my current tasks. Though my current job has nothing to do with the things I was trained on, training gave me the most important thing which was my confidence :)

I have nothing to regret about my training except for one thing. That was missing my niece's birthday because of the hectic schedule :( I wish I could change that one aspect of my life !!!

Any ways I don't wanna end my post on a sad note. Right now I am back to my office and I have lot of flexibility in terms of my time and work. Also I am soon going to leave for Hyderabad and try to pamper my niece. I wish and hope she would forgive me .......
