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

I have been with C# Corner for the last 5 months, and it’s been an honor being with such a great community.

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

The involvement of experts and great leaders in the community has always encouraged me in doing things. Enthusiasm is a must, they say. Every now and then, looking at people, reading their articles has always been encouraging. The choice behind being a part of C# Corner was the encouragement it provides in leading the way through to the goals.

5. How has C# Corner helped you personally?

Personally it gave me a ground to stand up and speak. It gave me a recognizable position in the software community. It gave me everything a beginner needs to grow and flourish.

6. How has C# Corner helped you professionally?

I have been a part of C# Corner for just a few months and it has given me a lot since I joined, the MVP Award and gifts every month. I have been posting blogs and articles and getting advice from readers, from the experts about how can I bring improvement in me. C#-Corner has become a way for me to get in touch with the people directly, and help them in the problem they are stuck in.

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

If I have to explain C# corner in a sentence, I would say it’s an amusement park for programmers. Really, here in C#-Corner you just choose your favorite technology and get go. And in every technology you will find experts, sharing their knowledge to the people, to the beginners, to every person who is, or is not the part of the community. You will find knowledge showering upon you every now and then, just go and grab as much as you can.

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

I was born in Jabalpur, in a so called middle class family. My mother is a house wife and my father is a government servant. I have one younger brother too. Being an older brother, I tried to teach my little brother some coding stuff, but it seems as if programming is just not his cup of tea. My mom wanted me to teach her computers lately, so, I started telling her about Windows Communication Foundation, Binding and endpoints sorts of stuff. Since that day until today, she has never asked me again about learning computers.

9. Can you tell us about your education?

I have done Bachelor of Engineering from Jabalpur in Electronics and communication. My interest in programming and technology has driven me here in this gigantic and wonderful world of computer programming.

10. What do you do for fun?

I code. Yes, coding is my best hobby. Working with various technologies for the most part is what I love most. Also blogging has become one of the integral parts of my day to day life.

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

The people who are the part of the community are very helpful. I remember I was stuck one day in a piece of code; I wasn’t a member of C# Corner at that time. So I posted my problem in various forums including C# Corner. I thought it will take at least a day or two to get a reply and also wasn’t sure if that too would be satisfactory. I still have the mail I got within half an hour from C# Corner that somebody has replied to my thread that I posted. I reviewed the reply and I was amazed it really solved my problem that was threatening me from two days.

The members of C# Corner are so dedicated in helping others. If you are a newbie, you can also interact with people, and get some guidance from them.

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

We in Jabalpur, organize C# Corner events every month. We organize talks, seminars and other events fulfilling C# Corner’s goal and that is to let the technology flow to every corner of the world. So that people can see the sharpness of the technology in every corner. C# Corner has helped a lot in this. We have a whole Jabalpur Chapter of ours for this.

C# Corner is at its best. No doubt C# Corner supports us a lot. The only thing I would like to say is it should give us more support so that we can help the community and technology to grow at an exponential rate.
