So here it begins…
Well this year started off with a pretty good Sprint after battling the slump. Initial months were packed with several events. I think that helped me normalize my distribution for events attended in 2020. Also this year, I attended GraphQL Asia Conference which was an amazing experience for me (thanks to ConnectWise). Once the lockdown started, it was a mixed experience for me. For some weeks, I found myself just busy with work and for some other I found myself dealing with chaos. I spent my free energy and time, working on projects which I found interesting. Working on TorchExpo was one of the best times of my life and it helped me bag 3rd place @ PyTorch Global Summer Hackathon. I also said bye to my ConnectWise Engineering Team this November.
On a side note, I want to thank my secret nobodyknowsus#general folks for keeping me sane and alive during the pandemic.
2020 brought a lot of challenges for me on technical and more on the non-technical side. I learnt the hard way on how to deal with the problems of virtual communication and how not to lose the human essence while working remotely. I am glad that I was able to help people and ask for help myself during these toughest times of our lives. Also, I want to share few things which were on repeat and which helped me during this pandemic:
I know why you’re here! So just like last year, this week I sent a message to few people which said −

Here’s what I got:
Looking at last few months, I think everyone is a winner! And, the wins/losses means more than just the sentiment what is plotted here :)
As usual, keeping it really simple:
You know what? I’m gonna say it again, Sometimes all you need is a fresh start!
Well, lets see what 2021 has in its TODO List, until then:
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR! Lets Pause 2020, Play 2021!
