This is my true and humble story. As a child I was deprived of many things, even my education, but deep down I had this desire to learn and to come up in life. It was long journey alone.
I loved to learn computer, but it was only a dream. I started working as Secretary and that opened up me new opportunity to learn computers, First I learned word perfect, excel and fox pro programming.
1997 I was doing well in my carrier as an Executive Secretary and working for a project in USAID, there they recognised my talents and passion for learning new technology and offered me to learn ‘web site designing’. Our teacher was Bob Galinksy of Fintrac, USA, who thought us everything perfectly. It was all about pure coding, only html. We were one of the pioneers in learning web designing in Sri Lanka.
As I was pregnand to have my son, I gave up my job at USAID, but my passion for web site designing kept burning. I ventured into different kind of businesses, but nothing working out. I joined ‘University of Colombo school of computing‘ and learned css, cms, php, mysql and dynamic web designing.
After 18 years I have built up my ow business brick by brick, my clients and friends brings me business.
I am grateful to all my Clients for trusting me and giving me their websites.
I keep up with the new technology by reading .net magazine from British Council and learn SEO tricks online, there are great resources available for anyone who wants to learn, web designing is a subject which cannot be thought but you have to learn on your own, You learn the basic but methodology keeps changing every minute so one should have a mind to learn something new everyday, otherwise you are left behind.
