C, C++, Java, C#.net, VB.net
Then I learned Java. The teacher suggested us that it would be better if we learned C++ before learning Java. So I took a good book for C++ suggested by him and learned C++ over the weekend (3 days). I became pretty clear about the concepts to start with Java. I loved Java so much that I decided to do my final project for Bachelors in Java.
After I came for masters in the US, I realized that C++ was the language they used for programming assignments. Some of the courses I took involved advanced C++ programming using OPEN GL API for 3D animation using C++. Aft first it was NOT fun but as the time went by, it was. At the end, I learned C++ along with usage of STL libraries.
I helped out my friends with their assignments in VB.net and learnt it along with them even though I didn't do that course. Later during my internship I learned programming in C#.net and developed application features for an awesome company.
I love learning new programming languages and am a fast learner.
I had an awesome time developing server side pages using J2EE Servlets and JSP during my Bachelor's final project and decided that I will chose web development as a career.
After working a lot with CMS like Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress, I jumped into the field of PHP web development where I work on frameworks and develop great applications. And while I worked on the back end frameworks, I also learned and developed the front end of the websites as part of my job and have managed to learn many of the front end frameworks like CSS Bootstrap, AngularJS, Node JS, etc.
Excel, SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle
I, since my childhood, had a good habit of keeping everything organized and orderly. I used to help my mom clean the house and put things together. I had an interest in collecting whatever interested me. We had a big load of comic books, story books, audio cassettes, video cassettes, CDs (After 1998), DVDs (After 2000) etc. that I liked to make a list of along with some attributes like where it is and what label number it had etc. which would make it easy to search for it.
It started with paper where I used to make a list of inventory in the paper to keep track of what were in the house and what were borrowed. Then after we got our first computer in 1998 (during my high school), we used Excel. Then I came to know about databases and wanted to learn and decided to go in to computer sciences.
Now I have worked with all of the following for managing data:
Oracle 9i, 10g
MS SQL Server
Server and System Administration
Apache, IIS, Domain Management, Web Hosting, Cloud Service Management, Virtual Machines, Windows and Linux, Security
I have been working on Windows since the days of Windows 95 and worked with every flavour of windows and also played with every free version of Linux OS. I consider myself a advanced windows user with deep knowledge of windows administration and features. I have setup PCs with multi boot OSs and managed partitions on FAT, NTFS and other systems.
As part of my job, I have helped in building and managing 63 servers which included 40+ Virtual machines via VMWare vSphere client which were hosted on VMWare ESXi servers. And I have also managed multiple sites hosted on hosts like HostGator and GoDaddy to cloud platforms like AWS and Azure both in PaaS and IaaS setup.
CVS, Team Foundation Server, SVN, Git
After years of working on code and making constant changes to site, I was introduced to version control systems like CVS and TFS. As I learnt the importance of the version control systems, I got deeper into the system administration and management of it and then learned the other more modern versions of it like SVN and Git. I have been lately using Github as the primary source control system and have been contributing to various private repositories for private projects.
A completed list of Languages and Tools that I have experience with are listed below:
Drupal 6 / 7 / 8
Acquia dev desktop
Adobe creative suite 5
Java sdk EE and ME
Team foundation server
