So, it’s been a month already!! 😀 I can’t believe that!! A month ago, I was whining about ILP and now I’m almost halfway done!! Totally cool! 😀 This one month had been very eventful!
We went to new places every weekend, like we watched Don 2 (actually that’s coz we thought they were still showing Sherlock Holmes but the thing got changed to a Malayalee comedy :|), went to Kanyakumari, then the famous Thejaswini building food court on the 7th floor, enjoyed the backwaters of Poovar and Alleppey. They’re just awesome experiences !! We totally took advantage of the weekends since the weekdays were full of assignments and diagnostics! 😥
A little bit of serious info! 🙂 Take Aspire seriously!! This one month of Core Skills will be pretty fast and you’ll have to take a test a week after you learn JAVA or a presentation after you learn HTML/CSS. This diagnostic can be on the system or on a pen and paper. Sometimes the Stream Owner can also conduct a viva or a written test. Such things will decide if you need Remedial i.e. extra help, extra time and extra assignments. So, have fun and take things seriously at the same time! 😀 Again, do not be late for classes. That’s a habit you should implement as soon as possible or maintain it. Try to be there at least 5 minutes earlier! Some leads are strict when it comes to timings!
As for the people who’ll get Mainframe, you guys are in for some real challenge!! The guys here take classes even on weekends!! 😯
So after a month, we’re done with Core Skills and have entered the Project Delivery phase! Cool! 😎 but very hectic!! 😥 I’ve even heard we’re gonna be busier when the coding starts!! 😕 We have our ILP project groups/teams now 😀 and every group has a Group Leader (GL) who is responsible for EVERYTHING!! That’s right! 🙂 So before you take up the responsibility of being the GL, evaluate yourself!!
I hope all of you know about domains in TCS. That’s the field based on which you’ll be developing your projects in the base branch. The common domains are Banking and Financial Services (BFS), Energy, Resources and Utilities (ERU), telecom, media, MIS, healthcare, travel, retail etc. I got ERU! 😀
Oh yes!! We got our first salary too!! 😀 That’s not something that can be disclosed, I guess! 😛 I feel so….totally happy now!! First salary!! Yay! 😀
Now I know everyone in my batch!! I think our’s is one cool batch! New friends, new ideas and the same ways of having fun! 😀
