CONTENTS OF THIS PAGE: A partial finite enumeration of ceritfiable, positive and progressive associations with concepts/ideas/environments/organisations/people over a period of 6 years (1997-2002), in the initial days of the internet, pc, communications,globalisation, y2k and software offshoring revolutions in India, created circa 2002, to study indexing in upcoming internet search engines.


A wee bit about myself and my environment





MODERN SOFTWARE IS EXTREMELY LABOR INTENSIVE

THIS OPENS UP THE MARKET FOR AVERAGE TO SLIGHTLY BELOW AVERAGE 10+2 STUDENTS, AND GRADUATES IN ANY FIELD IN

THE MONETARY RETURNS ARE HIGH FOR THESE SOFTWARE ENGINEERS

JOBS CAN INVOLVE MAINTENANCE, TESTING, DETAILED DESIGN, CODING AND VARIOUS OTHER ROUTINE ACTIVITIES

WITNESS THE RISE OF THE SOFTWARE INDUSTRY


THE AVAILABILITY OF THE PERSONAL WORKSTATION HAS OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS OPENED UP A LARGE NUMBER OF OPPORTUNITIES IN THE

THE PRESENT SITE DEALS WITH THE EXPERIMENTATION IN TURNING OUT IT LABOR ON A LARGE SCALE FOR SOFTWARE AND ELECTRONIC DESIGN AUTOMATION



THE PROOF OF THE PUDDING IS IN THE EATING .

I WAS INVOLVED IN EXPERIMENTING WITH IT LABOR FOR THREE YEARS FOR


AND

TASKS IN THE INDIAN SOFTWARE INDUSTRY

PRIMARILY THIS INVOLVED Y2K AND MAINTENANCE OF LEGACY SOFTWARE ON THE FOR A LARGE NUMBER OF MULTINATIONALS IN









THE SOFTWARE I SPECIALISED IN AS A "LONE WOLF" WAS THE MAINFRAME

IN WHICH I HAD "SINGLE HANDEDLY" EFFECTIVELY TRAINED ABOUT 300 SOFTWARE ENGINEERS, THESE IN TURNED TURNED OUT ANOTHER 1500 MAINFRAME ASSEMBLY LANGUAGE PROGRAMMERS. THE SIZE OF THE INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH WORKING SOFTWARE VARIED FROM A MILLION LINES OF CODE TO OVER 50 MILLION LINES OF CODE.

I WAS ALSO INVOLVED WITH PL/I(BOTH MVS AND DOS/VSE) AND COBOL ON THE MAINFRAME. THIS SOFTWARE OF COMPANIES WAS MANY OF LINES OF CODE. THE NAMES OF THE COMPANIES ARE WITHELD AS PER THE AGREEEMENT WITH MY CLIENTS for some time.

Now that a couple of years have passed from the Y2K effort some of the COMPANIES INVOLVED were

GE

GM

EDS

WHEELS

HEALTHION

FUJITSU

HITACHI

FDR

FDS

BANK OF MONTREAL

EUROPEAN COMPANIEW IN PL/I

CMM LEVEL 5 SOFTWARE COMPANY

WITH THE END OF THE Y2K MARKET AND THE SATURATION IN THE MAINFRAME MARKET I WAS INVOLVED IN OPEN SYSTEMS IN


CONSULTANCY & TRAINING FOR THE SAME SET OF SOFTWARE ENGINEERS FOR DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE. THE C++ SOFTWARE INVOLVED THE DEVELOPMENT OF . THE NAMES OF THE INVOLVED ARE WITHELD AS PER MY AGREEEMENT WITH MY CLIENTS for some time.


Now that the Y2K effort is behind us some of the corporations involved were


PRACTICALLY PRACTICALLY ALL CLIENTS OF SATYAM COMPUTERS IN THE Y2K EFFORT.

THE FOR THE ABOVE MENTIONED IS GIVEN HERE



INDIGENOUS COMPUTERS WERE AVAILABLE IN INDIA FROM 1970. INDIGENOUS SOFTWARE WAS LIMITED IN SCOPE & ISOLATED IN NATURE. BARRING A HANDFUL THE PERSONNEL INVOLVED IN THE INDIGENOUS ATTEMPS HAVE MIGRATED TO THE WEST OR TO THE OFFSHORE INDIAN INDUSTRY.

WITH the rise of the
OUTSOURCING INDUSTRY Circa 2003 A.D.
IN THE MAINFRAME MARKET
INVOLVED ONCE AGAIN IN
THE MASS TRAINING OF MAINFRAME ASSEMBLER PROFESSIONALS


AS reliable COMPUTERS HAVE BASICALLY ONLY BEEN AVAILABLE EASILY, ON A LARGE SCALE ONLY OVER THE LAST FIVE YEARS, INDIA & THE THIRD WORLD WILL REQUIRE AT LEAST A DECADE TO COMPETE IN ANY SIGNIFICANT WAY IN THE AREAS OF HIGHER END DEVELOPMENT. IN THIS DIRECTION I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN THE "COMMON SENSE" EXPOSITION OF COMPUTER SCIENCE IN REMOTE AREAS.






THOUGH I HAVE NOT USED IT HERE---- I always felt that a 1000 page text with each word hyperlinked can be used in the third world for instant, restricted communication, over the Web. Feeling bored one day I set up the links as organised below. Can you think up a use for the same, given the fact that land communications are expensive, unreliable, and perhaps non-existent in the third world, or even in the developed world when one is roaming and not stationary somewhere????? I can think up some applications for the same when dealing with the mass training of IT labor in over 200 centers spread out over India or maybe 1000 centers spread out over the Third World. Comments?????
