Entry: Oh God! What is happening Friday, March 19, 2004

Today a weird thing happened. It was quite surprising. The project that I was working on in the 2 months was in the final stages of delivery and things were moving in a hectic pace to ensure that everything was in order to make the client delivery. All code was rechecked again and again with the testers going full time to break the code to find bugs. I had developed 3 of the 4 modules in the project and I had to ensure and all was fine in the integration and the deployment also went smoothly. Also I was running some stress tests on the web applications to ensure the app. was responding smoothly. The simulated tests were increased from 10 users to 15, 50 and 200 users simultaneously hitting the application. It must have been a hell time for the web server, but It chugged thru the tests. Clear!

But it doesn't end there. But the parameters were now changed and eventually a simulated 400 users were hitting the application.

And then came a surprise from Japan(where we have our head office) that there is a change request in requirements for one of the modules. And Then it was told it was in one of my modules. Omigosh! At this stage of delivery a change in the requirement and it had to be done in the same time frame, My mY! Really I got tensed off. Ok then I Was analysing the new requirements in a rather hot mood against the unfairness of the situation! The Japanese are never satisfied. They never give compliments., only more work and endless changes late in the project cycle.

Then I left a bit dejected after doing some aesthetics work for the existing modules from the multims. team and headed home, thinking of the new reqt. and how to go about and all .. throughout the night.

The next day I came to office with a bit grim mood. One of my teammates was still there and grinned at me. Said that I looked handsome (:-)). I returned the compliments and then he pointed at the notice on the notice bard. It was a short reply from our CEO who is in Japan. And guess what! he praised our Project -the latest version that was sent from here and ordered the Indian GM to party today with Biriyani from Imperial and as I finished reading the notice I broke into a smile and all my team mates who were keenly watching my face for reaction broke into smiles and congrats. Phew! everyone shook hands and things became pleasant. The Japan office had never complimented our work before. This was the first time. A nice day it was ......

And about the new reqt. I had reloaded enough to handle the demands of the Japanese ................ :-)
