Why do I like Tech? by Z Ambassador Subhashis Paul

By Subhashis Paul posted 25 days ago

Hello everyone, I am Subhashis Paul. You can call me Subh. I am a computer science undergraduate pursuing my bachelor's from Heritage Institute of Technology, Kolkata.

Apart from being a student in computer science, I have a keen interest in web development and a genuine love for algorithms. I like to solve problems and am currently discovering the field of open source. I always consider myself a learner as there is a lot to know, learn, and find. I am always open to new ideas and never hold myself back from experiencing something new.

I was born and bought up in a small town, and I neither had access to a personal computer nor an internet connection at that time. I had to rely heavily on my school computer lab to learn any computer-related stuff. However, this could not stop me from learning about computers. Since my childhood, I have had a computer subject on my academic curriculum. So, I believe the interest gradually grew from there.

The world of Tech is enormous, and you would indeed find your place of interest in it. Moreover, in today's world, Tech is everywhere. From rising in the morning to going to sleep, we are surrounded by our gadgets, without which life would be unimaginable. The interesting fact is that Tech has also empowered many people. It has broken the boundaries of education. If you have a mobile and an internet connection, you can learn anything anytime and at your own pace. With the help of social media, we are much more aware of what is happening in the world and make correct decisions.

My enterprise computing journey started when I took part in the Master the Mainframe 2020 contest last year. Before that, I did not even know that a technology like Mainframe even existed. It was a fantastic experience for me. I learned a lot of new things and made new friends. It was exciting to discover a low-level programming language like COBOL. As it is a low-level programming language, it is fast and valuable in a space where every millisecond matters.
