Five Days with FSEs

What a week, this bygone week! After four weeks of continuous training on Sun's software solutions, this week I met up with a group of Field Support Engineers for a discussion on Sun Fire Midrange Servers. When I started this class on 08th December 2008, Monday, I never imagined that it would turn out to be a unique experience in my teaching career. What it is, you would know from the following paragraph.

On 8th, I felt slight weakness in my voice. By evening, I could speak nothing. I still had four days of training left, when an ENT advised me for a complete voice rest. Calling off the batch was an easy option, but not the best one. Hence on Tuesday, my training participants found in the classroom a whiteboard full of instructions, conveying to them clear and loud about an 'Instructor Led Voice-less' training that they were about to face! With a hope of some divine intervention, I continued from where I left on day one and it began to work in my favour. I have never written so much continuously on a white board ever before and I have never played such lengthy dumb charades either . For three full days (almost), I took sessions, without uttering a single word! Occasionally, someone would volunteer to explain to the whole class, concepts that required repeated explanations. It was tough, but it was immensely satisfying. I am not saying that I would ever want to have an experience like this in future, but then this would stand as one of my memorable sessions for obvious reason. I extend my heart-felt gratitude to folks in the picture below for their extreme cooperation in helping me complete this session on a very satisfying note. Thank you folks!



Those who aren't Field Engineers, but administrators of Sun Fire Midrange Servers and are on the look out for a Sun Training, check out this course. Wishing you all a restful weekend!

I ain't a Software Instructor

Sun isn't a software company, neither a mere hardware vendor; it's a Systems Company, where equal importance and attention is given to the Research & Development of components in both hardware (Servers and Storages) and Software portfolio. For rather a long period of time, my sessions have been more oriented on the Sun Software stack, obviously running myself into the danger of losing touch with the developments in the field of Sun Systems. Just when it seemed to me that I would be out of touch with Sun Hardware offerings, the folks in the published picture below came to my rescue by dropping in to Sun classroom for a discussion about Sun Fire HES. It was fun! Thank you all for some great time.



This evening I'm off to Hyderabad for an Access Manager training, a product which isn't certainly a piece of hardware . But clearly, I ain't a Software Instructor either!
