Today I am off from office !!! no clients, no projects….
I went to IASA Luanch at Taj (it’s a good one, food is also fine)…really IASA guys made is beautiful. It was a good show by them. Basically IASA is a non-profit organization….brining the SA community together, build web contents, Education details etc…and make some impacts in the Industry.http://www.iasahome.org
About the day…Paul Preiss, President – IASA made a good comparison between the building architect and the software architect…..building architect know how to make the cement mix and apply on the wall???, then why SA need to know technology? Rather interesting question!!!
But then….Aaron Tan Dani, The Chairman for IASA – Asia Pacific & Anand Mukundan, Chennai Chapter Head (from Polaris) was talking in length about technology (SOA)……I think these people really influenced by technology. Anand even had code samples !!!I think from an Indian point of view, it will take another decade or two for the corporate to understand a SA need not be a techi-guy!!!
Aaron, from Singapore did a good presentation…with his own accent …was a good one.Some other sessions are SaaS by Vivek (India head for IASA) and SOA by Anand. They had a panel discussion on SA’s opportunities. Seems a good career option, but need lot more experience on domain, technology, I personally feel.
The panel had people from Oracle, IBM…..they said they are haunting for SA!!! Cool. This show done by Shankar from Satyam.Finally the panel concluded that a good SA needs the following:·
Learn ability· Broadness· A good mentor· Challenge himself/herself· Be the guy in own area
Hey…they gave a nice laptop bag …. Was a perfect new year gift. Some of the photos….
