In the last 40 days, I was busy with training freshers at
, at Rushikonda. As I work for 4 hours in the morning and 4 hours in the evening at my institute -
, I generally do not get time to accept corporate training. But somehow I accepted the Kenexa's offer. I didn't know how I would cope with new schedule where I had to accommodate another 5 hours in my daily schedule.
I had to teach .NET 2.0 to a bunch of freshers. It stared on
. The venue is Conference Hall in Kenexa. It was equipped with a whiteboard/screen, NEC Projector, Dell Laptop. I was never comfortable typing more with a Laptop, so I requested and got USB keyboard and Mouse of Dell make. The environment was quite ideal for a good training programme.
Though I accepted the offer rather hesitantly, I never regretted it. The drive through beach road was great. Even the drive on NH5 was equally good with full of greenary. I had to drive through heavy rains sometimes. I enjoyed every bit of it. Roads at IT HUB/PARK are not good, but considering that it is new setup, it is acceptable.
Yeah, it was very demanding on me in terms of time and effort. I had to start my day at 7:00 AM at my institute and leave for Kenexa at 10:00 AM. Spend time at Kenexa till 3:00 PM and resume my operations at my Institute till 9:00 PM. So no time left in the day for any other activity.
But the best part of the training has been students. We (me & students) had a very good time together. They enjoyed learning and I enjoyed teaching them. We were together for more than 120 hours. A lot of time to get to know each other. I must say, it was a wonderful and unforgettable experience for me. I don't remember any batch in the past where I know each student's name and interacted with each one as much as I did with trainees at kenexa. May be one reason for that is the size of the batch (7 members). But I guess the main reason is they are good individuals. We enjoyed tea/coffee breaks and lunch breaks.
All of them just out of college and 2 of them had been my students at Srikanth Technologies. Others came from outside Vizag. We discussed almost every feature of C# 2.0 and then discussed Asp.Net, XML, ADO.NET, Web Services and Ajax. They are assigned a project -
. That will give them sufficient idea about how to use .NET to build a real world application.
I must also thank HR manager K.Naresh and .NET head Kiran Sangita for all that they did.
I handled a couple of corporate training programmes, but this is the best of all. I will remember it for a long time to come.
