Have been long planning to write on this topic and our lunch time conversation yesterday, reignited it or rather reminded, epdi venumnaalum vachukalam.
Lunchmate: "gils..you come from other end of the world right..your bus must surely be stopping at Karappakam?"
Me:"car pakkam bike pakkam ellathu pakkamum nikkum..what do you want?"
LM: "my cousin has joined a kambeni en route.since she would also be commuting in the same route as you, wanted to check if the bus will stop near her office"
Me: "kandipaaga nikkum..its not run by MTC rather TTDC. Chennai chutrula paaka aasapatta they can surely board this one. what is her tech? reminds of one Vikatan joke. What is the common question asked between two programmers and two pichakarans - Which platform...hehe"
LM: "romba pazhasu..she started as java developer and moved onto dot net and is in mainframes now"
Me: "huh??how many years exp she has?"
LM: "good question..three years"
Me: "three years and three major changes?? primary skill set ennanu poduvanga?"
LM: "you are in which era dude..ipolaam oray skill set thaan and its called adaptability..primary kintergartenlam kedayathu. benchla irukarathu all time high risku.. you can learn something and be billable is the tharaga manthiram."
Me: "athukunnu..oru logicay illama jumpa? one day java..next day mainframe..adutha naal data warehousingna..what will happen to their career?"
LM: "when it comes to having a job and choosing career..latter depends on former. hence proved"
Me: "more like joker of all trades and bachelor of none?"
LM: "who cares..project demands resources. requirements decides career. if you are lucky to get into a long term project..then yeah, your concept of career will work. Ippolam no projects run for more than few months. apdi irukarachay how can you be stubborn and stick to a single tech. people need to be flexible and adaptive to changes of time..see end of the day the bottomline is we are all in our job to earn and so is the company that gives us the job. whether I get paid for being an ERP guy or web services guy..end of the month payslipla enna varuthu matters. Ashtey"
