While pursuing my Bachelors Degree I got opportunity to study under lecturers and professors who were top notch in the software industry. My Pascal lecturer later became one of the Microsoft's core developer in USA. Their influence and the fascination of logic drove me towards programming from the day one I was introduced to it.
Today that knowledge and understanding of logic and fun of coding helps me in my day to day decision making. The logical approach to solving problem applies I believe in every aspect of life.
