Ever since I was a teenager, software development has been my passion. I still remember my initial days of programming when I was sitting in front of a desktop, with the basic cartridge loaded in, making it print “Hello! Kunal” for the very first time. As I went through the BASIC tutorial, it was almost magic, being able to get the computer to do whatever I wanted, just by typing in these funny little symbols, limited only by my own imagination and ingenuity. Throughout my high school, I latched on to any ideas for projects I could get, moving from “Hello World!” all the way to a simple GUI application using JAVA. I learned JAVA, then MySQL, tearing through any books I could find on anything remotely related to software development. I was insatiable.
So, now, in industry, this passion remains with me. There’s certainly a lot more to learn, yet more problems to solve, and yet more to build because we can grow only by learning. And for this I’m very grateful.
