Nirav will let you know Why We Indian Developers Fail… And what you can do about it..

We are Indian Developers. What China is to manufacturing, India is to software development. Cheap, Bulk, Inferior Quality. And let’s face the truth, for the most part, that argument is not wrong. Consider your colleagues and co-workers. Do you think they have great talent? Are they very good developers?

The sad thing is that we did not design ourselves for mediocrity and failures. It’s the way our brains are wired. In most cases, we don’t even know we are lousy. Let’s take this opportunity to look within and uncover the deepest sources of our biggest limitations. Let’s dig to the roots of our reality. Because awareness precedes change!

About Nirav

Nirav is referred to as an entrepreneur geek. One who likes technology as much as businesses. nirav-in-panel-with-mic

Nirav has built a rather impressive resume over the last 17 years. He launched India’s first electronic magazine at the age of 18, started a thriving web agency at 19, and was asked to exit the company he started at 30. From that low, he made a heroic return, turned around the company and went on to create string of seven businesses. He is not a serial entrepreneur, he is a parallel entrepreneur! He’s authored two books, spoken at various events and conferences, contributed to open source and community, written some fancy code and got gray hair at early age.

Nirav and his team have created some of the most popular WooCommerce plugins. And they also have a lot of plugins on the WordPress plugins repo – with over 100,000 active installs collectively. You can learn more about his WordPress solutions from: http://www.storeapps.orghttp://www.icegram.com and http://www.wpmeta.org
