Developer Happiness

Developer Happiness

I’ve had the pleasure of hiring and building high performing software engineering teams over a decade for multiple companies. These teams delivered great products and great value to businesses. I admire these teams not because the results they had produced, but how they worked together throughout the journey. Over these years, I have learnt the key to build great software is developer happiness. When your developers are happy, the engagement levels go high which results into higher outcome. A happy developer is far more productive than one who is not. It requires conscious and continuous efforts to keep a developer happy and ultimately raise the productivity of team. It is essential to understand that building software is a collaborative process – you need enthusiasm, inspiration and motivation of the team to be successful.

Mother – the god on earth

Everyday we come across stories that touch our heart and make us look outside the materialistic world. This is one such story that I have come across and sharing with you all through my blog. Though this is not my story, after reading the story, I feel very blessed to have a mother who has defined who I am today.   This story begins when I was a child: I was born poor. Often we hadn't enough to eat. Whenever we had some food, Mother often gave me her portion of rice. While she was transferring her rice into my bowl, she would say 'Eat this rice, son!
