I have a confession to make: When I started editing news and articles for C# Corner, I didn’t know the difference between MVC and API. That’s not to say that I felt uneasy or intimidated by technology; indeed, at the time I was working on a hybrid Mac/Linux computer, and I was fairly comfortable running some basic commands from the terminal. But C# Corner was a whole new level of tech for me. Now, after a year of editing articles on the site, I can proudly explain to my friends that MVC stands for “model view controller,” and “ Web API” is an “application program interface.” Not only that, but thanks to the C# Corner news section, I always know when a cool new gadget is about to be released. And for me, there is an important lesson here: There is no such thing as “just another job.” Whenever you go into anything -- large or small -- with an open mind and a commitment to doing your very best work, there is no limit to what you can learn. I learn something new from C# Corner every day, from what cutting-edge software is hitting the market, to the latest project Google is working on, to a new (to me) term or concept. And even though I am an editor and not a programmer, I am particularly thrilled, as a woman, to be involved with a site that’s dedicated to all things tech. The fact is, women only hold about 26 percent of all computing jobs in the U.S. (according to a 2014 study). That’s odd to me, considering women’s early involvement in modern computing. In 1944, Grace Hopper, a U.S. Navy Rear Admiral, was one of the programmers of the Harvard Mark I computer, and she went on to invent the first compiler for a programming language. Just two years later, in 1946, six brilliant women programmed the ENIAC computer -- working only from logical diagrams. By the time they were finished, ENIAC could run a differential calculus equation in seconds. And that’s another reason that a forum like C# Corner is so important: It doesn’t discriminate. It offers a voice and a platform to anyone, regardless of background or gender. The only requirement is a willingness to learn and to teach. Everyone is equal when it comes to sharing knowledge. I’m so grateful to Mahesh Chand for giving me the opportunity to be a part of such an incredible site, and I’m honored to edit the articles that the many knowledgeable contributors work so hard on. I admire the dedication of these writers, and the supportive spirit of the community. I have learned so much as an editor of C# Corner, and I look forward to learning more each and every day!

I joined C# Corner in my college time and at that time I had no idea what is C# Corner is all about, who owns it and why this website exists.But when I worked in the IT industry for 4 years, I came to know about C# Corner. One day I was searching online to find a solution for an issue and found in C# Corner Forums section and found the answer. I wondered, who replied the question and why. I came to know that, it is public Forum where anyone can answer and get help.One day, I replied to a question and it got accepted - you can't believe how much happy I was at that moment. I felt that I have helped someone technically. Then I started reading and writing articles and blogs. At last, I got the MVP award from C# Corner for my contributions, which was my first professional award. From that day and today, I regularly write articles and answer questions on the forums of C# Corner because I like it.

An author is broadly defined as "the person who originates or gave existence to anything" and whose authorship determines responsibility for what was created. Narrowly defined, an author is the originator of any written work and can also be described as a writer.Being an author is not an easy profession to understand and explain until I visited C# Corner (www.c-sharpcorner.com) website. C# Corner is not just a site or a web portal but a form Sarasvati Mata to all the aspiring talents who is helping them to learn and share knowledge across millions of students, developers, programmers and even teachers.“Only the gardener knows how much efforts it takes to plant and grow a tree.”In this write up, I would like to share my journey and how life has changed in recent years since I joined C# Corner.My name is Kamal Singh Rawat. By profession, I am a Sr. Software Developer. Like any other developer, I had always been busy in projects, writing code and so on. I was spending my life as a typical developer. But I had no idea that my life is going to change soon.I may not be the best author in the world, but I truly believe in knowledge sharing and learning.So, here it goes. This is how it all started.I saw many authors got famous from C# Corner, got MVP awards and many more accolades. This encouraged me to post my first ever article.When I first published my article on C# Corner, it got rejected as I simply copied it from MSDN. It made me upset. But I decided not to give up. On Sep 23, 2012 I wrote another authentic article on Introduction to MSMQ while following proper guidelines. From then, I started writing articles and get into sharing. It has eventually become a regular habit.After that, I met with a youth icon, Dhananjay Kumar, a leading thinker. I inquired him about his way of working and he shared that its only passion that drives you to work hard to achieve your goal. Since then, C-Sharpcorner becomes my passion that has really changed my life.After that, C# Corner started chapters, local user group events and luckily one started in Mumbai to share, learn and develop network. This is when my life took a U-turn.It all started with a small discussion with none other than .Net Guru (Shivprasad Koirala) over some yummy and hot pizzas. We started with four people. This was the beginning of a U turn in my life. After that I was selected to lead the Mumbai chapter group and have done several events and webinars since then. The number is just keeps growing.And finally a big announcement came from C# Corner about its annual conference. It was an opportunity to meet and speak to C# Corner MVPs and many other renowned speakers around the world. I was one of the speakers. It was an amazing experience.This is all about community, knowledge sharing and passion which changed my life.I know it is a lot to read but I wanted to say that today, people know me. I have a good career and it’s all because of community sharing. The power and reach of the community is limitless.“Ek boond knowledge kisi ki zindigi badal sakta hai…”I hope you enjoyed reading my little story.Thanks,C# Corner Rock. ):

C# Corner is one of my best friends for clearing any doubts in my development.

C# corner is the great community and It is for anyone who loves to share and learn technology. It is a knowledge bank where two types of people come, one who wants to learn technology, and the second, who wants to share technology. And the best part is, this is for all professionals who uses Microsoft technologies. Big thanks to the C# Corner team for doing great job and because of you, we are now connected with global community.

C# Corner is a wonderful place to start your technical journey. Now a days, Whenever i log in to my system, i will surf c# corner at least once. It's becomes one of my habit in my day. I'm very much sure, if you learn at least a new concept(or keyword) when you surf C# corner home page itself. Most of the stuffs i learnt from this way. I just choose an article, mostly from .Net Stack, in the home page and began to read. If further exploration needed i just google for it or search c# corner itself.So the bottom line is, C# corner introduced and induced and me to learn new things on daily basis. Apart from articles, i'm a huge fan of C# corner forum. I love it a lot. One of the main thing about forum is, it introduced to you a "REAL" problems from the real people. So you get a various approaches/solutions given by different people. This is also one of the best part in C# Corner. These kind of question/answer platform helps me lot to keep in touch with all part of my technical stack and give a good confidence on it. I have joined C# Corner around 2010 itself. But became an active member from 2015 onward. C# Corner team also won't miss you to congratulate you, if you really deserve. I won some monthly awards and got selected as a C# corner MVP in this year beginning. These kind of appreciations are really helpful to all members. Keep it up C# Corner. Also personally i would like to thank Mahesh and his wonderful team to create such a powerful technical platform. I'm really happy to be a part of this community! Thanks a lot C# Corner!

The cool and unique thing about C# Corner is its vibrant membership. Unlike some technical communities that are only online, this one reaches out into the real world, and engages in a deeply personal way. The strong leadership and community participation on a local level is amazing. Kudos to the way information and knowledge is shared not only with career professionals, but also with the upcoming generations of students just getting started in the industry. Its great to be a part of it!

I was searching for my first Job in January 2015 in IT field but due to the tag of a 'Fresher', I wasn't considered by companies. I thought, I may not have technical knowledge to be a part of the software development industry. At that time, I was so depressed and helpless and was thinking of starting job at a Call Center. I was surfing Facebook, and found one post of 'DJ' that he is organizing a free workshop on AngularJS in Noida. I registered for that. That was the day, I became a part of C# Corner. On 21st February, I went to attend the workshop and met Atul Sir and Dinesh Sir in the morning. I was a stranger there and they greeted me so nicely and asked me to wait until the workshop starts. Then, the star icon came, Dhananjay Sir (DJ) who started teaching JavaScript so nicely that he became my inspiration. I decided not to leave the software field. He inspired me to learn more and share more.From that day, I started writing technical articles, created some videos and by sharing knowledge most of my articles were selected as Article of the Day by Microsoft ASP.NET Community, C# Corner people considered me as their MVP and the main part here is, I also received my first Microsoft MVP Award, the precious one.Also, I got my dream job, in one of the top companies of the world i.e. HCL Technologies Ltd. as a Software Engineer.I got all this in the span of one year and my all thanks and credit goes to C# Corner Team and Community. They are the people, who make other people's dream come true. Thanks to all for this platform. I am nothing without it.

Kap ShivhareNoida India

I learned how to write alphabets in programming from the training sessions I took. Once I signed up C# Corner and started contributing the answers for questions and writing some articles, my graph in programming raised exponentially. On C# Corner Answers tab, you can find various types of problems that programmers face day to day. If you try to solve or research at least 5-10 questions a day, that's it. You will become a gem, believe me. A big thank you to Mahesh and Praveen sir!

C# Corner is an awesome platform for professionals, where everyone can share and learn. It has helped me develop cutting-edge technical skills. It's a teacher who teaches us in a friendly environment.

C# Corner is the best social community site for IT developers . I am pretty sure that no other community can compete with it. I have a big dream that C# Corner will become the world's best developers networking site one day.

Pintoo YadavMumbai India

Prashant KumarBangalore India

Hello, It gives me immense pleasure to talk about C# Corner and its contribution in my life. I was mere a developer till 2005. Incidentally I visited C# Corner. I didn't have any clue about the special days and years coming on my way. I published my 1st article within days and the trend continued. I got C# MVP later, which gave me more visibility among my colleagues. All human life is for share and care and so I am not selfish to hide any takeaways received from C# Corner. Here I am sharing a formula, especially to developers as if you have any self-learned hot technical stack, just share it with others as an article. You will get queries and doubts about it and by addressing those you would become a master in that area. I was sharpening my technical edge by using same methodology, which also helped me to correct in some areas!!! I used to address many queries inside forum section. Forum helps you to locate interesting areas you are not familiar with. People asking queries related to multiple technology stacks and so visiting forums always guarantees that something new which might be interested will come on your way. So ideally C# Corner helped me to update on various stacks and also to gain in-depth knowledge on areas in which you are more interested. I still remember, my C# buddies to whom we have only virtual contact. There were talks about life too ? as I am remembering some buddies who were struggling in their life were getting good advice and suggestions from experts through forum. I got shape to my virtual communication skills by participating such genuine chats, which eventually contributed to my corporate email communication skills too. Thanks for everything and I am eagerly looking forward to new year for continuing this journey with C# Corner.

C# Corner has actually helped me in a different ways. It has helped me utilize my time spent on internet in a better way. Earlier, I would spend 1 - 2 hours daily online on just watching videos and viewing pictures on Facebook and other platforms. But, when I started spending more time on C# Corner, I realized there is a better way to spend your time in a "better" or "productive" way while you are using internet.Now, I have a habit of spending daily an hour or so on C# Corner and I try to read articles on latest technologies and update my knowledge. I like the "Answers" section where I can go and post answer to someone's problem. This way it has helped me in brushing up my technical knowledge in different fields too.

Nilesh ShahREGINA Canada

In the year of 2012, I came to know about the communities and how people are helping each other in our professional world. I joined C# corner, which was my first step towards community contribution. As you all know starting things are pretty much easy, continuing is not. There was no participation’s from my end for another two years, I got buried in my office works.In the year of 2014, I logged in to C# corner again and started contributing community. There I received a much warm welcome from all the C# corner family members. I really appreciate that. Many thanks to C# corner. And from 2014, I was in the monthly winners list of C# corner several times, and my articles were selected in Asp.Net as article of the day. These things really motivated me to contribute more.In Jan 2015, I was awarded as C# corner MVP, my first C# Corner MVP award. I was really happy and I was given a chance to be a part of C# Corner annual conference as a result. That was the place where I got to know about the Microsoft MVP program. I had set my goal towards becoming a Microsoft MVP.In Jan 2016, I was awarded C# Corner MVP second time. I was super excited to see my contributions were recognized. 2016, April 1st was the day which I can never forget in my life. There is a saying “Patience pays off”. It is true, I got rewarded for my patience and hard work. I would treat this as one of the great achievement in my life. I was super charged to read a mail received in my mail box, saying that I had been selected as Microsoft MVP. Upcoming days were fantastic, each day my inbox was filled with appreciation mails and congratulations from my colleagues and friends. My image was published in my company website. I felt proud when I saw that. That was cool right? I can always say these things had happened to me because of C# Corner. Love you lot :)

I am very glad to be a part of this wonderful professional community. When I started blogging in 2014, I did not know how to write a good blog or article. But, I took courage to create an account on C# corner in June 2014. Those days, I was keenly interested in answering forum questions on most of the professional communities and started the same on C# Corner.I published my maiden article on C# Corner in June 2015 for which I was recognized and got place in monthly winners list. There started my journey of writing articles. "Taditdash" is my mentor in writing articles. It is due his advice and motivation I could contribute a little to the tech world. Then came the most happiest moment of my life. I received MVP from C# Corner. I was overwhelmed because that was the first international award. And yes, I am now a proud part of the Great Professional Community.Through these years what I have felt is that C# Corner encourages your passion and guides your professional growth !!
