Scared of Layoffs? Then CODE


Keep getting calls from friends that their jobs are at stake because of Automation & AI. In fact a close buddy of mine called me two days back telling his job is at stake.

He said his company has moved out of Peoplesoft and unfortunately his expertise was into it. He said his competency was on the tool and he has lost his touch on coding. His purpose of call was to understand the technology trends and how he has to learn/practice coding.

For a long time Swami & me keep insisting folks who needs an IT career to code. People who get laid off are people who are;

  • Project Managers
  • People Managers
  • Account Managers
  • Manual Software Testers
  • Customer Support Executives

To my knowledge not a single person who is a coder got laid off!!!

How has 2016 shaped up!!!


Started the year without much fanfare, party, expectations, resolutions etc. It was a simply start and spent the whole day at home.

But on business end it was very much happening 45 days, where each and everyday was productive and progressive!!

  • It was time for reinvention for Cogzidel Technologies and a lot is happening there…
  • It is progressive for Cogzidel Consultqncy Services too… A new initiative has be launched and Bala is at his best…
  • We have resumed on the Coffee Shop initiative, a trimmed down version to start with… It is a Coffee Kiosk and we have started the setup process… Happy that a long standing dream has come true… We should be up and running by second week of March…
  • Working on a pilot project for Citizen Journalism initiative… It’s a seven year old initiative and started working on this for a month now… Happy to see the pilot run is showing some momentum… We must be stepping into our Alpha run in 2-3 months from now…
  • Personally working on my Crowd Funding project… Spending less than an hour everyday… Planning to go on to pilot phase once completing the Pilot Run for Citizen Journalism and Coffee Kiosk launch… Might be less than 2 months from now…

Even on personal front it is satisfying;

  • Worked with my mother on wrapping up of banking work…
  • Helped my mother to find vendors for house repair work… Though my mother is taking care of execution, I did the challenging part of finding vendors…
  • Attended family functions along with my mother… Made my mother feel happy as I don’t attend any functions…
  • Spent some quality time with my wife…

So, far I’m happy that I’m able to progress and balance on multiple initiatives. Though there are challenged and stumbling blocks, they are managed and was able to overcome them successfully!!

Chitra Swaminathan had some shopping work nearby Meenakshi Temple & we went to dinner to Milagu Hotel

I am visiting this hotel after an year & I was little skeptical as I didn’t like their food in my previous visits. But they have reworked on their hotel interiors & exteriors which made my thought of giving it a try!

When we stepped in, we are the only customers stepping in 🙂 And the entire hotel staff welcome us 🙂 Something in me alarmed while Chitra looked at me in a way that every husband can understand what she meant through that look 😀

We have been directed to the A/C room.

Then came a hi-fi funky dude for taking orders. After a long time, I saw a person who instead of menu…
