Earlier today (or this week as we space it out) we announced that CA World ’15 registration is now open.

 

This year, the CA Community member price is $1,295 if you register by September 18, which is $700 off the regular price. We’re also offering “Buy One, Get One” on conference passes and introducing a “Team Pass” program for companies planning to send five or more people to the event.

And make sure you’re following the CA World ’15 Community to get updates and alerts about the event.

Once a month we'll shine our virtual spotlight on one of the CA DevTest community's members. It's just a fun, easy way for us to get to know one another a little bit beyond our work-related interactions here on the site. This month, we're featuring Surya Anil Kumar Suravarapu, Senior Associate at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

One word that describes how you work:  Awesome!


How do you use CA Communities and any suggestions for others? I use CA communities as a platform for me to learn and grow. You learn not only by getting help from others but also by helping others. It is an excellent platform to keep oneself up to date on latest features, implementations and how the various solutions are being used at other customers. This in turn can give ideas on different ways to use the product for better results. My suggestion would be "Login at least once every day"

How do you balance life/work? Sometimes work can be really demanding, I still ensure I spend time with family, make it to Religious activities, Toastmasters speech club, guitar classes, health club etc. which keep me motivated.
