It feels good to be back on my blog and post an update on my journey for the past few months. I have been sharing few articles on my LinkedIn Pulse. You can read them here:

So I wanted to share how I am utilising STeP-IN Forum's initiatives in my learning journey.

There are many videos from past events like conferences, evening talks, webinars, contests and workshops.
