Sunny Kumar Sharma

2. Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m a Software Developer with more than having 2 years of experience in Microsoft Technologies (Web/ Windows / Database Programming, MS-Office Add-ins development and plus). I love to explore and learn the new technologies. My family has been running a business in electronics, hence I’ve been a little technical since my childhood. I like the things to be perfect. I’m optimistic, ambitious and a results oriented guy, sometimes I am funny also.

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

For around 2 years I’ve been associated with the C# Corner but my active participation started in March 2013.

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

I like the way experts share their knowledge for the benefit of other members via this platform. Chapter events also play a nice role in getting together and being there physically with the other members. Other than that, the willingness to help is the key to what makes me be a part of C# Corner. By sharing your knowledge you also get the opportunity to improvise on it and secondly it makes you happy too.

5. How did C# Corner help you personally?

It helped me explore myself. It gave me the platform to help the community members by sharing my knowledge meanwhile gaining it from the other experts. It feels good to help, even a single member a day to achieve his/her purpose or to sort his/her problems out. I feel very satisfied when somebody says, “Thanks Sunny, it helped."

6. How did C# Corner help you professionally?

Being recognized for your work is delightful and it gives you the momentum to keep it high with dedication. I’ve been awarded with C# Corner MVP and that’s an accomplishment for me. I appreciate the idea of Chapter meets every month. It provides the chance to add career value to your profession and enhances your personal network.

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

It’s a good platform to learn, share and grow up. Plenty of quality resources are available, that you have access to without any restriction, and you have the full support of the community.

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

I was born and brought up in Aurangabad in Bihar. We live in a joint family. My father is a business man, my mother is a housewife and my elder brother is also working hard in our family business. I’m single yet living with friends.

9. Can you tell us about your education? 

I did my +2 in 2006 from my home town and then there was a two year gap, the reason being I got myself involved completely in business but had an intense urge towards programming & IT and that made me start my B.Sc.IT in 2008. I have completed my M.Sc.IT recently in Feb 2013.

10. What do you do for fun?

I play games, listen to music, blow whistles, socialize, read books, browse internet etc.

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

Being recognized is a kind of achievement for everybody. I’ve received C# MVP award this year and that is very inspiring for me to set the sky as my limit. Chapter events are really optimistic and fruitful. Plenty of resources are there to pick and grow up in terms of your career. There are so many communities out there but I feel more connected on C# Corner.

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

First, I would like to add a Live Chat section for different categories available that one can access and get instant help instead of waiting for notification if somebody has answered his/her question. This will allow them to be in a real-time communication and obviously will lead to allow them feel more delighted. 

Second, I would like moderators group bifurcated in different roles like Editor, Reviewer etc. having different rights. Also, an Author must be aware of what has been edited in his/her post rather than checking line by line every time an edit has been made, as of now we, the author receives a notification email. Many a times authors choose to ignore if something has been edited just to avoid the headache of checking their edited articles from start to end. Being notified of what changes have been made will make them understand the mistake they’ve made and they will tend to avoid it further, leading to submission of more clean articles.

Third, implementation of “Similar Questions” suggestion box in “Ask A Question” section while posting a new question. I’ve often seen questions being repeated and members answering them as well repeatedly. This suggestion may allow them to search among the existing questions relating to their problem.
