No job is more fulfilling than inspiring people to aim and achieve something. I understand how useful these stories can be in any programmer’s early days.

Keep going and all the best for your future endeavours. :slight_smile:

Glad to have editorialists like @taran_1407 , @vijju123 and @likecs :slight_smile:


Yeah, right.

One thing I’ve to mention about @taran_1407 is that he’s very patient. While some editorialists stop replying after some time or do not reply at all, he keeps answering questions put up on his editorial.

PS: @vijju123, please be an editorialist again sometime soon, preferably for a Lunchtime!


Yes, thats true, @taran_1407 is very patient in answering questions :slight_smile:

I might try for December or January if Hasan or Misha chose me :p. For now with editorials in taran’s safe hands, I can take a break :stuck_out_tongue: XD
