The Art and Engineering of Blogging
As readers of this blog know I have been blogging from 2004, with over 2900 posts in these 16 years. One of my regular readers is Dr Shriram Raghunathan who is the HoD, Gaming Department of VIT Institute, Bhopal. He invited me to deliver a session to his Engineering students doing their Bachelor and Masters degree courses. And that’s how I created this session, probably the first time I am delivering on this topic. I enjoyed sharing my experience with the students on blogging and was impressed with their curious questions.
