Thanks for visiting this blog in 2008, I hope it was useful to all who came here and hope you return back in 2009 as well.
The year end is always busy with things to be completed & cleaned up. Of course, you also need to take a break to revitalise yourself to face the new year. So, it has been like that for me as well, hence why you didn't see a post for awhile.
I really look forward to the new year, a new year always brings new hopes and new challenges! Apart from work, my role at ACS has further expanded. For 2009, I have a National role to play as the Board Director of the National Young IT Board (Link). I have also been re-elected as a member of the Victorian Branch, which is going to be a continuation from where I left in 2008.
Enjoy the festive season!! Wish a you a Happy New Year!!

MIT, the Melbourne Institute of Technology, is a modern, innovative and dynamic institution which provides high-quality education relevant to the ever-changing demands of the workforce. It also provides a firm base for students who want to pursue higher education in Business and Information Technology. MIT also has a high concentration of international students and it was great to have the opportunity to address those new students.
I wish to thank Dr. Elizabeth A. Kendall, Dr. Savitri Bevinakoppa and Anna Bordignon of MIT for their assistance in organizing these presentations and look forward to doing more in this space.

I am a true believer of the saying ‘Actions Speak Louder Than Words’ and I think the base for any Change starts with Actions. Those Actions need to be based on solid objectives and principles if you want to attract support from others for the cause. However, it’s important to translate Actions into Words as well, so that whoever didn’t see the actual Actions get the message.
Some related inspiring statements follow:
I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts. ~John Locke
Well done is better than well said. ~Benjamin Franklin
Between saying and doing many a pair of shoes is worn out. ~Italian Proverb
The shortest answer is doing. ~Lord Herbert
Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement. ~Alfred Adler
We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing. Action always generates inspiration. Inspiration seldom generates action. ~Frank Tibolt
A promise is a cloud; fulfillment is rain. ~Arabian Proverb
An idea not coupled with action will never get any bigger than the brain cell it occupied. ~Arnold Glasow
Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned. ~Peter Marshall
Never mistake motion for action. ~Ernest Hemingway
A barking dog is often more useful than a sleeping lion. ~Washington Irving, adapted from a verse in the Bible
Action is the last resource of those who know not how to dream. ~Oscar Wilde
Remember, people will judge you by your actions, not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold - but so does a hard-boiled egg. ~Author Unknown
If ifs were gifts, every day would be Christmas. ~Charles Barkley
Talk doesn't cook rice. ~Chinese Proverb
Be content to act, and leave the talking to others. ~Baltasar Gracian
I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on man unless they act. ~G.K. Chesterton
If your work speaks for itself, don't interrupt. ~Henry J. Kaiser
Don't find fault. Find a remedy. ~Henry Ford
What ought to have been done, and what shall be done, often stifle doing between them. ~Augustus William Hare and Julius Charles Hare, Guesses at Truth, by Two Brothers, 1827
Success will never be a big step in the future, success is a small step taken just now. ~Jonatan Mårtensson
Nature takes away any faculty that is not used. ~William R. Inge
He that waits upon fortune is never sure of a dinner. ~Benjamin Franklin
In skating over thin ice, our safety is in our speed. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
One's action ought to come out of an achieved stillness: not to be a mere rushing on. ~D.H. Lawrence
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced. ~James Baldwin
Action will remove the doubts that theory cannot solve. ~Tehyi Hsieh
Men expect too much, do too little. ~Allen Tate
When deeds speak, words are nothing. ~African Proverb
The best way out of a problem is through it. ~Author Unknown
I believe half the unhappiness in life comes from people being afraid to go straight at things. ~William J. Lock

To this date, I have not received it. He didn’t pursue his own plea! This just shows the lack ok persistence and also not using opportunities presented to some people. Such people know that they need help, but don’t know how to get it. At the same time, they understand that they need to break the vicious cycle by trying hard, but don’t do the hard work to break it by trying out different things, they just live in that cycle complaining about various things for their fate. I hope such people be more courageous and persistence in achieving their dreams, so that they don’t limit them to just dreams but make them realities.

Dr Anthony Overmass was our guest senior professional this time, he did a great talk to our Young IT members. Anthony is a unique entrepreneur, thinks and executes things in his own way. I am happy that we were able to have a speaker who thinks out of the box who actually delivered a talk with a difference as well. It was mainly around how he was able to succeed as an ICT businessman outlining the way he managed to keep the innovation going whilst managing the business, risks and opportunities. Everyone enjoyed it, and also appreciated the opportunity they got to talk to such a senior high achiever face to face in a relaxed environment.

The background is that, the Australian government has introduced some changes to the student visas and also to permanent resident (PR) visa for those who have studied in Australia under student visas. In this new scheme, one way to earn some additional points (10) is to do the Professional Year Program with the organization that’s been selected by the Immigration Department for their respective professional stream. The Australian Computer Society being the professional society for ICT professionals, the minister has gazzetted ACS as the PYear program provider for ICT students.
Apart from the formal importance of it from a visa and industry standard perspective, I am excited about it due to the course content and the objectives. It’s a job readiness program, something that universities have continued to fail to deliver. Shifting from the university to the work force is something that we need to work on as this shift means jumping over a huge gap for the vast majority.
The PYear Program is delivered between a minimum of 44 weeks and a maximum 12 months and includes the following elements;
Australian Workplace Culture
Professional and Business Communications Skills
Professional Element, and
ACS engages partnering educational institutes as accredited providers to conduct the program. As of now Monash, Swinburne and Brisbane North Institute of TAFE & Internships Australia have come on board as partners.
The course audience is actually a sub set within the Young IT target group, and some of the skills that we try to facilitate through our programs are similar, because one of our main objectives has been to help graduates in a smooth swift to the industry by helping them out with the key skills required.
The program was launched in Melbourne on May 26th and I had the opportunity to speak at the opening bootcamp. I spoke to them about the important role that ACS could play in their careers as well as how they should practically get involved for the benefit of both their own selves and the industry. The second group starts on the 30th of June, and I have been invited again to speak to them on the opening day. I am looking forward to getting them on board on Young IT activities by making them aware of the great things that we do!
If you would like more information please check here and here.
On Wednesday the 2nd of July, we have our next Young IT in the Pub event. We have a special guest participating at this event to enhance the networking opportunity. The guest is Dr Anthony Overmass! He will be also doing a career related interesting talk. Free food and drinks will be provided as usual and for free registrations please visit:

I thought the below link gives a good overview on it. Read it and learn how to stay above the line always. If you think seriously, you will realise that there are so many people around us who tend to be below the line, but if we can try and spread the word, may be we can try to get them above the line....

Talking of people I met, I feel proud and happy that I met each one of them. The chats I had with from senior professionals, ACS National Board members including the President himself to students were so amazing and memorable. I enjoyed every minute of it and learnt so much. The crew that went down there from Melbourne was cool too. Thanks guys for making me special on that dinner night! :)
Debbie Timmins was so great as the chair and as I have mentioned previously as well in my blog, she is an inspiration to young professionals. The core organizers including Yohan Ramasundara, Cindy Tong, Seni Murni and Tapan Dave did a marvoulous job. Yohan is always a treat to work with. AJ Kulathunga, the unique young entreprenour from Darwin is an asset to associate with I believe. Keep an eye on his nice blog at http://www.dreambuildinspirelead.com/.
Sorry, I am not mentioning all the names here, but they all were just amazing!
Be assured that we will be putting an even better show in Syndey next year, and be sure to be a part of the learning and fun!

In this podcast Prabath Siriwardene talks to Oxygen Tank on the OpenID integration of WSO2 Identity Solution. The integration enhances the WSO2 Identity Solution to cater to a wider audience for Web based authentication. OpenID is a key feature in decentralizing single sign-on, much favored by many users.
Prabath Siriwardene is a member of the WSO2 Identity Solution team and is currently working on integrating OpenID support. We used to work at the same company sometime back and are good friends to this date. He is one of the best techies I’ve ever seen in my career (this is not an exaggeration, I really mean it) and a very hard worker (I've seen how he works at office and also know how he managed to get to where he is now), an inspiration to all IT professionals.

I thought Kumar's talk was exceptional and had some honest advice and different opinions on how to be on top. It definitely was not the usual career guidance you would hear. We are extremely pleased to be able to create such an opportunity for Young IT professionals.
I want to sincerely thank my team of YIT, who did a great job in organizing and promoting this event. Passing that mark of 100 is a great achievement on its own. As Kumar himself said in his talk, it was the team effort and not mine!

This site is launched by one of my oldest friends from Sri Lanka, Nafraz Razeen, we used to play street cricket together about 15 years ago! As we both left the neighbourhood in the same period of time, we kind of lost contacts for long periods of time, but remembered to look up for each other occasionally whenever we got a chance. I wish him all the best with his new endeavour!

At this stage requirement is not specific, however, this could open up a huge opportunity for a good XML candidate and I am keen to open this up for an ACS Victorian member.

We meet very successful, visionary, highly achieved people day in day out. It could be daunting if you compare yourself to them and get worried. Rather, we should take that as an example, set a new standard for ourselves. In no way does this mean that there needs a competition, no, no way. Its about making yourself a success by getting into the right direction for your own satisfaction. Its not a fight, its not a competition, but for your own self, what do you want to achieve for self satisfaction? The answer to that question should drive you. The important and really satisfying things are what you do, achieve and create by your own self and not what fall onto your lap from others!
