Summing Up – 2016

How was 2016 to me ?

I always say to my friends that life should be like DSCE (My College) campus. It is full of up’s and down’s since it is constructed on shavige malleshwara hills.

Many things went really well, also few things didn’t go well. But learned more from things which went wrong. It is the hard work and determination which will always help you to succeed.

Inspirational talks by Abdul Kalam, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and many others made me not to loose my hopes at anytime.

“Learning gives creativity.

  Creativity leads to thinking.

  Thinking provides knowledge.

  Knowledge makes you great!”

Abdul Kalam

Some of the highlights :

At the beginning of the year, we fought for #Netneutrality #SaveTheInternet. Part of the protest which was conducted on Jan 2nd. Took part in #FreedomHack hackathon.

Hosted DuckDuckGo’s global Quak and Hack.

Started contributing to WikiToLearn, KDE project. Learned more about MediaWiki software.
Workshops at my GLUG.
My biggest dream got fulfilled by participating in Google Summer of Code (2016).
Worked with SwiftCode team to share the knowledge. Teaching students some new technologies.

Currently, mentoring in Google Code-In under KDE organization.

All good. 🙂
Looking for another great year ahead. 🙂
Wish you also a great and prosperous new year. 😀
