Travelling around KL

Today would be my last day in Kuala Lumpur, so decided to do a bit of roaming around. Went to Batu caves in the morning. It's a nice temple inside a limestone hill cave which you will reach after climbing around 270 steps.
Next went to the bird park and the butterfly park. The bird park was very scenic and you can stroll inside with rest stops and activities inside the park.
Finally came to china town, but it was not as exciting as the one i saw in San Francisco. Got some pics i took today uploaded at

At TechEd SEA 2007

I am in Kuala Lumpur at TechEd South East Asia 2007. This is the first TechEd i am attending out of the country. I did a lab session at TechEd for the .NET university on workflow foundation. Workflow foundation has been a topic of interest for me and it felt great doing the session at this event. .NET university is more of an open concept where all the labs and the slides are available for anyone interested in redelivering the sessions internally for their companies or for user groups.
I have got some pictures uploaded at

Travelling around the Globe

The past 2 years i really got addicted to travelling around and visiting new places. Am still a newbie compared to the number of countries i have been to. So one resolution i made this year is to make sure that i atleast visit one new place (preferably a new country) every year. Some ultimate sites i came across for travel freaks are:

Breadth or Depth in Software Development

One question i always had during my career in Software Development is whether to concentrate on the breadth or depth of the available tools, techniques and technologies. One major dilemna is with the amount of technologies nobody can master all. Initially when i started out i wanted to master a few technologies but with the kind of projects you get to work on these days, that doesn't really seem like a viable approach.
Nowadays i started looking into many technologies and more often concentrating on having a wider knowledge but going into depth only as and when necessary. So far this seems like a better approach especially as you gather more and more experience. Jack of all and master of some.
