1. What is your name?
2. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am an ASP.NET developer for over 4.5 years and currently held a role of team leader in some good CMMI level 3 company. I have done my BSC Computer Science graduation in the year 2008 and after that earned various Microsoft certification like MCP, MCTS and MCPD in asp.net 3.5 and MCTS in SQL Server 2008.  I am a C-Sharp Corner MVP from around 6-7 months. Being one of the active members of the C# Corner Mumbai user group, I have been involved in some seminars on ASP.NET. 

Other than C-Sharp Corner, my contributions towards community can be seen on www.codeProject.com, my personal blog www.sukesh-marla.com, my Facebook page www.facebook.com/BlogsBySukeshMarla, my Facebook group www.facebook.com/groups/BlogsBySukeshMarla and in three you tube channels including dnfvideo, LearnDotNet60days and SukeshMarla.

After getting awarded by C-Sharp corner multiple times for monthly contributions, Shiv Prasad Koirala and I came up with a new initiative called The Programmer – an offline IT newspaper for targeting around 2000 C# developers across India.

Sukesh’s area of interest also includes open sources and initiated a C# open source for data access layer at http://smartdataaccesslayer.codeplex.com and currently associate with an accounting open source.  

3. How long have you been associated with C# Corner?

Well its a bit tough question. I created my C# Corner account in 2008. At that time as a new developer I was little excited for registering my self everywhere. But actively I started participating on C# Corner activities like offline chapters, articles, blogs and many more from august 2012.

4. What makes you to be a part of C# Corner?

C# corner is a great community. Its the place where I wrote my very first professional article and after that I never stopped. People like Mahesh sir and Shiv prasad koirala were always there who encouraged and helped with my article assignments. It helped me to connect many great people via offline chapters. And most importantly it feels great when other say "Thanks man, we learned some thing because of you".

5. How does C# Corner has helped you personally?

I wrote my very first design pattern article here which really helped me to change my thought process. I got a new look in IT industry after I received C# Corner MVP award, It made people believe in me and my solutions. Communication is one of the most important factor when it comes to professional and career growth and C# Corner chapters really became stepping stone for me.

6. How does C# Corner has helped you professionally?

What is mean by professional growth? Its a growth in the way we present things in front of others and this is where C# Corner chapters into picture. Chapters let others learn from us and what we get is confidence.

As i said, when we say we are MVP, it creates a different image  of us in front of people and we start getting some good opportunities.

7. How would you explain C# Corner to a young student?

Learning is always a good practice but more important is 

1) you should keep on learning and should keep yourself updated with market, Industry and technology.

2) You should share what you know and let other learn which they can share later.

And C# Corner is a place of Learn and Share.

8. Can you tell us little bit about your family background?

I stay with my Mom and Dad in Mumbai. My younger brother had expired 3 years back because of some heart problems. Now I am all alone. But I have a so called sister called Ujjwala who never let me feel that I have no siblings.

9. Can you tell us about your education? 

I am BSC graduate. Very much interested in learning and gathering new knowledge and information but never enjoyed studying for marks and so don't have any plan for higher education. Looking for Microsoft MVP in coming months.

10. What do you do for fun?

I play PC games, Movies and most importantly record videos and write articles.

11. What makes you choose C# Corner as your community?

One of my great mentor Shiv prasad koirala suggested me in the beginning about this community,

12. If you need to make one change to C# Corner, what would that be?

I want to change the award section (Make award article wise- how article is useful, how many people are interested, read article. Currently awards are based on Total points and because of this  some people are just trying to increase their points and hardly considering quality,
