Like US, in India we don't have that many communities and live events. When I moved to Bangalore an year back, I searched for .NET and SQL Server user groups in Bangalore. Few .NET user groups exist but not active enough. I came across SQL Server Geeks from a colleague and attended few sessions of SQL Server Day in Bangalore. It is a great initiative by SQL Server Geeks.

I am struggling with stiffness in neck along with migraine from the last six years. It has worsened now. I got it X-Rayed a couple of times. The reports show signs of stiffness in the muscle spasms. Programmers have to sit for very long hours in front of PC and it demands more caffeine intake and junk food like Pizza and Burgers. My To-Do lists are impressive but of no help when the stiffness starts and migraine triggers. Trying to save a few bucks by not buying a comfortable chair and not joining a good Gym, I have wasted a lot of money buying medicines.
I am happy to add a nice feature in my upcoming application to automatically monitor and tune the health of database but I regret the same software is not available for me.

Well, I am an unknown personality of the industry but here are the neck pain stories of few personalities of the software industry you may be aware of:

In my previous company, I was a part of a team. My team included two HRs, few web-designers, few developers and testers along with a team leader and a project manager, like any team in a typical IT company. Most of the things were handled in an unplanned way and the To-Do list was just a messed up list. No deadlines, no targets and sometimes no tasks clearly defined. Staff just looked tired and occupied by fatigue due to lack of interest. Our boss often commented: “Don’t do donkey work”, but the staff didn’t follow and continued with their donkey work.
I started finding ways to try to improve the way we collaborate and the way other things were handled in our office. I wanted to simplify things and make work interesting for me and others too. While coming and leaving office, ideas filled my mind and I started thinking of a concept, I named: Innovation at Work.
