Take Back The Tech

Being part of the dominating gender in our society I may not be able to understand how does it feel to be treated as some inferior being. And its not just my society I am talking about here, its the same case everywhere. And its unfortunate.

If you are a male who is living in a society where women are treated badly, are target of routine misbehavior and disrespect, and you think we should give voice to end this inequality; Then join TBTT campaign and create awareness, educate minds and train the women to be stronger.

This one is a bad experience that I had while working with someone, who I met through a tech personality in the local community, and before I realized my mistake it had been over a year since I was working for this company/individual.

To keep it short, I would just like to tell people who are running a startup or working with some medium/big size company as freelancers to NEVER quote low for any project on the promise(written or verbal) that there are bigger and better projects for you to do. Secondly, always make a written agreement with the payment terms and deliverables mentioned clearly. There are many other lessons which I would be sharing soon.

Its been a real lesson for me. The biggest let down from someone whom I started looking upto as a mentor and as a senior.
