The Year that was 2014

So we are at the end of 2014. It's an interesting year from both personal and professional life PoV. tetris It was a year of some great travels, food, some memorable conversations with friends, great teammates to work with and interesting problems to solve.

I must say it was also one of the busiest and most productive year for me. It also felt like the one which went through very quickly. It got over even before I realized that it was 2014. There are still so many things to do!.

Until now I used to blog only about the highlights of the year. I never blogged about the resolutions. From now on I will add a couple of important things that I want to achieve. It helps me if I write it down.


  1. Data{Meet} is a Trust now. I am very happy with the progress we are making.
  2. I got to travel in USA this year. This trip brought back so many memories of my first trip to USA ten years back.
  3. Going to Sri Lanka was on our list for a long time. It happened this year. We mostly travelled in the south. I would like to Go back and see the rest of Lanka.
  4. I also spent a week at CodeCamp, Bellagio . It's probably the most beautiful place where I have spent time contemplating and coding. Also spent time in Milan cycling during the same trip.
  5. Through I am not completely happy with my running stats, I did run a Sky Dash, TCS 10K, Ramamnagara Mini Marathon 10K and Bangalore Midnight marathon 10K. I have improved by 10 minutes compared to last year.
  6. My effort to learn something new on Tuesdays has been fun and is going well
  7. I am very proud of Two Delhi events which Data{Meet} was associated with DBootCamp and ODCDEL2014.
  8. I really liked Thrissur Pooram
  9. Books, nothing great. I did not reach double digit. I am not very happy.
  10. I am happy that I contributed to the work of Greenpeace, AAP, Citizen Matters, Neralu, Wikipedia
  11. I saw an election very closely this year. Its good, bad and ugly. This year I have been tracking bad news and its bad!
  12. I spend most my time with Mavrix and Data{Meet}. I also work with Jhatkaa, Fourthlion (HawkEye & InstaVaani)
  13. I am quite happy about my code contribution to FOSS projects I have 500+ contributions this year.

For next year

  1. Walk at the least 500KMS
  2. 18 books at the least
  3. Try and break the 60 minutes barrier in 10K run.
