Fail. Failure. Strong words which are used way too frequently.
Media prints reports about a sports event and calls out the players who 'failed' to qualify, or to win a medal. Social media users read these reports and in their sub conscious mind a thought is placed, that whoever did not win, they failed. They failed to achieve what they set out to, and they failed to prove their worth.
But, did they? A sportsperson trained, worked hard day and night, for months and years, on their own accord, battling whatever hardships and problems they might have faced…
Only now in my late 20s have I realized and understood what it meant to have a good education. Only now have I realized the interconnectivity between a good college and a great peer group. Only now it is clear to me what impact a good educational background has on the jobs you can aim for and positions you can actually hold.
I wish things were this clear back when it would have made a difference. Or I wish I had just followed what I was being told and followed that path to reap benefits later.

What are wireframes? What are they used for? Why are they used?
In very basic words, wireframes are simple diagrams that use simple shapes to depict the placements and layouts, for an initial product concept. They help to visualize the design and mark placeholders for the numerous features you plan to add — a logo, a button, a text box, an image, a menu bar and the like.
Wireframes help bring thoughts to paper and add clarity and structure to ideas. They are essential to ensure the ideas are feasible, look okay in reality, and serve the purpose. …
2021 is the year of hope after what 2020 threw at us and the impact it had on our everyday existence.
Although, taking us towards better times, technology saw tremendous progress and growth. New norms and new ways of working meant new challenges but innovation and success were not elusive.
Behind ground breaking processes and products, you will find carefully evolved, exhaustive testing methodologies. Without good, all round testing, there can be no smooth sailing in this world of quick results and blink and miss opportunities.
So what are the software testing trends at the forefront of our ever evolving…
The difference between an article that has been written with excellent research and checks and an article that has not been given enough attention, lies in the details.
A quick read is enough to list down the differences in these 2 sentences.
As much as everyone wants ito be successful, nobody is comfortable discussing it with people who might judge or patronise or are known for gossiping. Success is relative. It is also a very personal and sensitive topic.
In various situations, instead of building each other up, we more often pull others down.
It could be unintentional. Unless you are really aware of how tricky it is to convey what you actually intend to, you might end up using the wrong word, emphasizing on a pain point, which then begins the downward spiral for the whole conversation’s intentions.

Self hosted agents are useful —
These agents are installed on systems you build and maintain.
Use a configuration management system to define and install the suite of packages you need.
For eg. Chef can be used.
Agent capabilities are defined as : the resources they have access to (and hence what they are capable to do), like the OS and the OS version installed.

The little joys in life are so underrated because as we go on through our days, we forget, we adapt, we evolve but only to adjust to situations.
Seldom do we take decisions based on a want as that might be deemed childish/silly.
Over the top suggestions and requirements that look harmless because of the sheer frequency they are hurled at us, only add to us forgetting what actually matters.
These suggestions often revolve around how your way of navigating through life is not acceptable, around how those decisions of yours were a disastor.
The most hellish thing is to…
Splunk is a monitoring tool. Displays logs as query results in a very easy to read manner. It arranges and clubs data like no other, through indexing.

Learning to unlearn.
Sometimes to jump ahead from a long standing blocker, what is needed for you may not be a new skill. What might be becoming a problem, is what you know. Sometimes our judgement is clouded by past experiences, what we heard and what we interpreted. Instead of the need to learn some thing new, it might help instead to unlearn.
What would that constitute? All that limits your imagination and stops you from thinking out of the box. Whatever stops you to take chances, to innovate and even to discover.
All of those mind blocks, you have…
