Along with the artistic approach, the candidate should also be well equipped with the skill’s that are needed to design something. As there is a famous quote “Seeing is believing”

Lots of people around the world think that an experience personal will always deliver the product with a far great quality than a fresher. But at times they are wrong. As sometime a fresher can beat an experienced personal.
90% times the fresher’s are far energetic and enthusiastic than an experienced personal and a fresher can be always hired in a very small salary bracket.

The commitment of a mobile app developer does not complete only with the commencement of his project. But it extends until all the bugs and interruptions are fixed, hence a good developer should also be a good tester.

Windows + LinkedIn= Pinnacle of Professionalism


Windows + LinkedIn= Pinnacle of Professionalism
As every living being on the planet knows about the current acquisition of LinkedIn, to give a better understanding of the acquisition I am going to share some of my findings of the deal. On 13th June 2016 Microsoft breaks the internet by its largest acquisition in the history, Microsoft acquired world’s biggest professional social network website LinkedIn Corp. for $26.2 billion dollars. The Idea behind the deal is both the Microsoft and LinkedIn is in the saturation state and this acquisition can open serval new aspects for both of them.

With this deal, Mr. Nadella wants to connect office tools with the professionals who works on them so that they can have a direct approach towards their work. For example, if the Microsoft office is directly connected to the LinkedIn, the professionals who are attending that meeting could learn more about the fellow members. The sales person who is using the Microsoft tools for managing their clients can get some details about their client as their sheets will be directly connected to LinkedIn via the internet.

With the acquisition of LinkedIn, also belonged to is a portal for training videos provided by the LinkedIn to make its user smarter and more efficient. With the help of Linda, Microsoft can offer tutorial videos of Linda in its native software’s like Excel and spreadsheets.

Mr. Nadella is also planning to share its Cortana digital assistant access to the data provided by the LinkedIn. The LinkedIn is hoping to take its business on track with this acquisition as the shares of LinkedIn has been decelerated by 50% in a year. It seems Microsoft has a trend of acquiring businesses with their every new CEO, as with Steve Ballmer acquired Nokia handset in $9.4 billion and now Mr. Nadella acquired LinkedIn at a much greater price.

With this new acquisition, Microsoft can link LinkedIn with skype and its email, this move could act as the connective tissue for enterprises. The acquisition made by Microsoft is very precious as LinkedIn is the most important platform for Freelancers and recruiters. Now Microsoft has a content company which is world’s most specialised, influential and highly updated platform.

LinkedIn is a platform not only for Recruiter’s and employers but can also serve as an advertising media for companies where they can get relevant leads. If we talk about the potential of LinkedIn, it has 433 million members’ and in every second 2 new members joins LinkedIn. In 2016 it has 45 billion page views which are 8 billion more than the previous year. LinkedIn publishes some of the most valuable content available on the internet.

By this new acquisition, Microsoft has become a more powerful brand and reached the pinnacle of the professional world.

Save Lives, Donate Blood
Everybody knows about blood transfusion and blood donation, but here I am going to Blood transfusion is a common practice nowadays, but every one once in a while must have thought that when this practice started and how it become so developed to the be the common practise. Blood transfusion date backs to 17th century when William Harvey a British physician made the scientists and doctors aware about the Blood circulation and its properties.

The 1st successful Blood transfusion was recorded when Dr. Richard Lower performed a successful blood transfusion in a dog and after that several successful experiment has been performed. In the year 1818 Dr James Blundell successfully performed blood transfusion to a patient. After this several other developments has been made in the research work of the human blood.

In 1901 Dr. Karl Landsteiner from Austria discovered Human blood groups.
It’s a known fact that blood transfusion is very good for health and also responsible for saving many lives. During 2nd world war blood transfusion has served a very important procedure and saved many lives. Many patients around the world does not have proper access to blood and in the end they die due to the unavailability of the blood.

The need of blood transfusion is not certain, as anybody can have a requirement of blood at any place and any time, for that purpose the provision of blood bank has been made. For filling these blood banks’ there are many campaign’s running around the world which require Regular, Voluntary and unpaid blood donors.

According to report published by WHO it there are 108 million blood donations collected around the world, out of 50% of these donations are collected in developed countries having 20% of the world’s population, which gives a simple stat that only donation of only 1% of population can fulfil the basic need of the world. Around 62 countries in the world collect 100% of their blood requirement by the voluntary blood donation.

To increase the awareness for blood donation world health organisation (WHO) has dedicated a day 14th June on 2004 as a world Blood donor day. On this day the govt. of different countries around the world organised various campaigns to promote blood donations.

We at “ENGINEERBABU” always indulge in the things which could be used for social cause. In the year 2015 we made an app “Share blood India” for a client in a nominal price so as it could be utilized by the people for better good.
