Now, I am happy after all these boring holidays, did something productive(posting this) besides learning. You might think it’s insane, learning during holidays. But, thank god I am not studying. I am following some Java tutorials on YouTube and trying to understand my first technical book Head First Java. A hell of a book that. Basically I don’t like reading books, fact is that I completed reading How I Braved Anu Aunty and Co-Founded A Million Dollar Company in two days in my second sem and that is my first book. The main reason I don’t like books is the way they appear, those paras, those lines with same font and size, which eventually makes me scare and to throw it away.

I completed reading 200 pages of 700 in two days(surprisingly, I understood) and realised that it’s really Brain-Friendly. All Happies. Hope my Java journey takes me further. Now, sad part is, there is something big to do in my mind but facing difficulties to practically apply it(Yeah, I know something big always comes with a lot of difficulties). I got selected for two roadtests (reviewing new electronic products, mostly development boards, home automation systems) in which I am about to receive A raspberry-pi with home automation modules(fun part is these modules are self-powered) and A launch pad from TI, MSP430 with bluetooth modules. The real sad part living in India(no hard feelings), it takes a long time to ship these kits to India. All of those who got selected in roadtests have received their kits(not from India). There’s a nice thing to do with those self-powered modules(sensors). But before knowing what can we do with Continue reading
