  1. Few things noticeable about bangladesh microsoft community are
    -Very much self proclaimed stars, there are these group of people praising each other and indirectly themselves and thus becoming stars to others within and outside the community
    -No idea of proper open source culture, we have seen Microsoft Community in BD talking about open source more then any other community who are actually contributing to open source for years. The funny part is, just when Microsoft started getting into the hardcore open source culture very recently, the not so involved open source community of Microsoft in BD are pushing everything they code up in github in the name of open source contribution, even basic games they built. This shows the immaturity.
    -Finally, this recent culture of learning something from the internet, then building some basic stuff with that learning (like combinating some .net with node with some machine learning etc etc) then writing some online blog about it seems very common in the community. The blog seems to portray a very intellectual image of the person knowing the tech stack.

    1. Hi!

      Although I saw this 10 days later, I’m replying now.

      1. The whole thing was about NerdCats, yet it came towards Microsoft Bangladesh. Don’t know why. Probably blindfolded hate.

      2. There is a starting point for everything. Now, if you really believe just because this community started late they shouldn’t talk about it, you might have a bigger ego than yourself.

      3. And I don’t get whats wrong with learning stuff from internet, if people are inclined to learn, I don’t see a point judging how they learn it.

      4. Some “Machine Learning etc etc?” Thank you. Im learning Machine Learning as the day passes. I’d rather be stupid than knowledgeable to put etc etc after something like Machine Learning and undermine it.

      5. Yes, they are posting basic games. But at least they are trying. Time would change and they’d definitely do something if they keep walking. Everyone starts from level stupid. If you think you are the “omnipotent” decider of what people should try, kindly come out of the shadow and talk.

      6. Writing blogs are extensively one’s freedom. Basic or not, if someone learns something and wishes to share there shouldnt be any stopping point to that. Nobody is forced to read, are they?

  2. Mr. Swagata, do u use an algorithms in medicine directory application?
    Need your reply soon 😀
