I have been working for The Answer Company since mid 2019 and spent several months getting certified for Acumatica. The experience of learning the new cloud ERP has been a tremendous one. An ERP built with Microsoft technologies from the ground up is something that aligns with my skill set quite nicely.
After attending the Acumatica Summit in January 2020, I was inspired to pursue being an Acumatica Developer MVP. I was fortunate enough to be granted this opportunity and am now part of a group of highly skilled developers from across the continent. As part of being a Developer MVP, we were tasked with creating blog posts for the Acumatica site. My first blog post can be viewed here:
Nishaan got a once in a lifetime opportunity to skate with Vancouver Giants on January 9th. Thanks to the Giants and Surrey Minor Hockey for making this happen.
Video was supplied by the Giants (no audio unfortunately):
After reading Scott Hanselman’s review of Nokia’s Purity Pro BH940 wireless headphones, I had to get a pair.
I already have the Nokia Lumia 1020 so that was a perfect match.
The Purity Pro app automatically pops up when you connect the headphones via Bluetooth.
I have the headset connected to my Lenovo laptop for GotoMeetings, Skype, and listening to music. Simultaneously, I have the headset connected to my phone for phone calls, text message, and music from Nokia Mix Radio app and TuneIn. Did I mention simultaneously? It can connect two devices at the same time and store up to 8 devices in memory.
Add active noise cancellation to boot, and it’s the complete package. I’m looking forward to taking these on my next flight.
Pin the app to my main screen and you get a nice view of playback time.
My first trip to Nat Bailey stadium with my daughter was better than anticipated. Promoted as a kid friendly park, it had a complete area for kids to play. Pretty awesome setup if your kid is 2 – 12 years old and needs to exert energy.
Special thanks to Bani for including Nazara as a bridesmaid in the wedding. Meant a lot to us. Great long weekend in Victoria.

Blogging from my phone while listening to music. Things you can do on a small device. Desktop footprint has decreased dramatically in size as well. My sister and I bought this tiny lil desktop for my dad. The Lenovo M72e.
This tiny desktop does the trick for people who check email and use Office products. Lenovo adds a solid 3 year warranty on parts as well. Solid.
Nazara’s 6th birthday party was a skating event at the Sport and Leisure Center in Surrey. The party was a success as the kids had a lot of fun and it was good to get back on the ice.
On this day of Remembrance Day, I like to remember my late grandfather, the Late Honourable Lieutenant Bhag Singh Kaila who served 28 years for the Indian Army and retired in 1961. He fought in World War II between the years 1939 – 1945 for the British Commonwealth. He served for the Indian Army from Secunderabad (a well known army and air force presence).
My goal next year with the help of my dad will be to get more information on all the medals my grandfather achieved during is 28 years in the military.
I’m starting a new venture next week which I’ll update on my LinkedIn profile. This post is to thank all the good people at Encaptis (formerly known as Coastal Range Systems). I was at Encaptis for 5 years. On my second day at the job, I had to leave for a week due to the arrival of my first born. Luckily, the company found it in their hearts to keep me around anyways. Besides producing babies, I was busy with clients like 4Refuel producing code and working on fun .NET stuff like WPF and Silverlight. This was a great environment for me to learn the complete life cycle of software projects in a high scale environment with various clients across different domains.
Special thanks goes to all the developers at Encaptis. Definitely a great and very talented group here. Our infamous leader Maxim Michtchenko is the greatest period. It was an absolute privilege to learn under his guidance.
I will definitely miss Encaptis and the people that make it a great place to work and succeed. Just one word for the folks here …. Thank-you.
