About

I am a software engineer and tech blogger, located in New York Chicago, US and currently working on .Net, SQL Server, SSRS, SharePoint, MS Dynamics AX, and MS Dynamics CRM for many years. I always look for new opportunities, ideas, and innovative ways to use technology to develop solutions that perform and expend well with growing needs of the organization. I also like to write techie posts through my blog at http://blog.RahulSharma.in/.

I was born in New Delhi, India and spent most of my good time there with my family & really lovable friends. I still miss those school days as we all do, right? :) I started my professional education by persuing my higher education in commerce as I always wanted to do my own thing and I really loved studying business management & finance. So, for this I also did my graduation in commerce and got the Bachelor of Commerce degree from Delhi University. I was also studying computers at that time to keep up and leverage the benefits of technology in business.

But I honestly don’t remember when Computer Programming became my first love, and yeah I am still following it passionately. I took it seriously and got married to software development. Yup, to show my love I did my post-graduation in computer applications and received Masters of Computer Application. I created my first business software for accounting (like Tally / QuickBooks) as my final year project, using Visual Basic and supported SQL Server, Oracle and MS Access at that time.

I started my carrier as a software engineer in a company dealing with ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) consultancy and implementation. From there I learnt that ERP is the place where I can keep up with my both the passions together. I can really utilize my business studies and software engineering skills here. So I again started to learn business processes and how to map them with the ERP systems. For this, I studied executive management program in Applied Finance from IIM (Indian Institute of Management), Calcutta to better understand finance & management accounting related to current business practices.

In 2009, I moved to New York, US to work with a consultancy company with the main focus on providing ERP consultancy and implementation.

In 2012, I joined a company in Chicago, US, where I am working on various Microsoft technologies as Sr. Solutions Architect. To know more about my professional background, catch me on LinkedIn.

In my free time, I love to go out with my family & friends, watching movies and do other fun stuff. I do like listening music, though I can’t remember lyrics or artist names :) . I also enjoy writing on various topics, check out my technology blog at http://blog.RahulSharma.in. Currently we are writing a book on Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, not yet done with it but I will keep you posted.

In case, if you wonder and want to know meaning of my name Rahul. Rahul, a popular male name in India, has a variety of meanings. The earliest meaning found in the Upanishads is "conqueror of all miseries". Later use of the word is attributed to the Buddha, who named his son Rahul as he felt that family ties could be an obstacle in the path to renunciation and nirvana. Rahul means "Moon" in Sanskrit.
