2018 I quit my job at Pearson. I made the decision to move on after being 3+ years a software engineer at different startups and MNC. It was a tough decision to make, because the company had a huge impact on me from a personal and professional perspective. It is always hard to move on. But then again, I didn’t want to get too comfortable. And I don’t want to get stuck in one particular lifestyle either. I want to experience different things like i always to do.
Now, I want to be bold and try to make this next step to have more time for the things that I truly value. I would separate my services into four cornerstones: Consulting, Freelancing, Teaching and Developing. Find more about these cornerstones in the article in order to know about what i do.
The First cornerstone of my endeavour is making new stuff. While I worked in my last 9 to 6 job, I collected a huge list of ideas over time. I guess most of the people are keeping such a list, but there is never enough time to tackle all of these items. Recently, it was the first time that I showed my ideas to someone else. I was astonished that I had gathered over 1000 items in various lists and sublists.
All these items are ideas about applications, things I want to learn, things I would like to teach and things I want to write about. But as full-time employee, I never found the time to do all these things. Maybe I even don’t find the time right now, where I have to figure out how to earn my own share, but that’s what this adventure is all about.

The second cornerstone of my endeavour is teaching. Writing about my own learnings in web development started as a sheer experiment. I enjoyed the process of writing, digging into the problems by trying to explain them to myself, and bringing the solutions on paper in concrete yet simple words. I never expected others to read about them. Many people supported me in my doings and they gave me the opportunity to teach; an activity that I discovered as a meaningful thing to do in my life.
All this jabbering about being self-employed, making and teaching doesn’t work without generating any income whatsoever. That’s why my final cornerstone is consulting and freelancing. After working for years with like minded colleagues in the 9 to 6 world, I always wanted to give consulting a shot in my life. Now I thought it would be the perfect time. I would love to work closely with clients on applications and solving their problems. In this scenario, I am able to shift from being a consultant, who is giving advice and a clear strategy for the application, to being a freelancer who can deep dive into the code and solve problems for you. So, if you are seeking for a on-site/remote tamil/english speaking software engineer, don’t hesitate to reach out to me . I want to work with you on your web, mobile or IoT applications.
It is an exciting time for me right now. At the moment, I am working with companies in Chennai remotely migrating their tech stack to web technologies. So if your company is keen to work with me on such things, or mentioned opportunities from the list, reach out to me. Looking forward to hearing from you :-) Find me on Twitter Github Instagram LinkedIn
