I have wide range of interests and getting my hands dirty in technology is one among them. I use this platform primarily as my knowledge base. I also use this platform to share my experience and experiments so that it might help someone who is walking the way I already did.

I would pretty much appreciate if you could comment on it to bring into my notice on what could have been done better.
