Recap of 2018

Hi Reader,

THANK YOU, for being with me in 2018. It was another good year due to your Support, Trust, and Love. Besides, you, I would like to thank my employer Infragistics and my boss Jason Beres that they gave me opportunities to contribute to developer community.

If you are an Angular developer, you may want to check fastest native Angular component library Ignite UI for Angular.

In 2018, I wrote articles, delivered talks in small meetups or big conferences, organized conference of 400 developers.

In 2018, I mainly focused on JavaScript and Angular. I was able to do the following:

Organizing ng-India was a kind of learning yet motivating experience. Since this was first ever-Angular specific conference in India, I had my doubts. However, everything went as planned. We sold all 300 tickets in less than one month and was joined by speakers from all across India. From printing goodies, printing T-Shirts, doing social media, to receiving speakers at AirPort, to delivering two talks, I had fun in almost everything in ng-India.

I must thank all sponsors, volunteers, and speakers of ng-India. Without them, it was never possible. A special thanks to Shivprasad Koirala  and   Questpond for their trust in ng-India. Yes, finally yet importantly a big thank to vibrant Angular community for all motivation.

I delivered 11 talks in 2018. To deliver these talks, I travelled to six Indian cities and a country Nepal. Out of 11 talks, five talks were in big conferences such as ng-India, ng-Nepal, Pune Developer Conference and five talks were kind of workshops hosted by me in various cities. I also did one webinar for ng-Frankfurt.

I wrote 28 articles mainly on Angular and JavaScript and wrote an Angular Essential E-Book. I hope, I was useful to you in 2018.

Also in 2018, I got Microsoft MVP Award, which was ninth MVP Award for me since 2010. I have been getting it every year since 2010. I also had opportunity to attend MVP Summit in Seattle.

If you are reading my blog since 2010 and wondering, how I look on 31 December 2018, below photo is taken today

 

With all happiness, I wish you Happy New Year 2019. Keep learning, writing, teaching, and implementing. I am very excited for 2019.  Happy Coding.

Thanks with Regards
