Who? (Tell us about you. Your name, where you work, etc. Anything relevant to the Application.)
I am Deepthi Katta currently working as Technical Lead at Verndale. Verndale is a marketing technology company that pioneers the way people and brands connect. The company spans through several locations and filled with passionate individuals. I have been working on Sitecore from very early phases starting version 6.6, it has been quite a journey for almost 5+ years. I appreciate and see the growth the platform has had in previous years and would love to see where the next milestones take us.
I am extermely passionate about two things quality and problem solving. These qualities per me are essential to deliver best solutions that are built on the platform that take full advantage of what Sitecore has to offer and beyond.
I got a chance to certify twice with Sitecore, one with version 6.6 and one recently on 8.0. Working with Verndale and my previous company on Sitecore gave me an opportunity to work with the platform and understand the core of the platform satisfying the needs of various clients. I got to work with Coveo recently as well and a subject matter expertise on the same internally at Verndale.
Why Me? (Here is your chance to explain why people need to vote for you. What contributions have you made to help the community.)
I always strive to deliver the best solution built upon sitecore. As I play my current role as a Technical Lead, I train and help other developers follow the best practices as well.
Few key things I always strive towards are quality and performance. These things are often forgotten and it is extremely critical to ensure we all strive towards making great applications that would then project as a success measure for Sitecore.
I continue to contribute on all open channels and also do blog about my findings, solutions and thoughts here https://www.unravelsitecore.com, I am active internally as well to help support other team members and also an active member on Sitecore community. I believe in sharing is caring mantra and always share my knowledge that I gained with experience with others who are looking for answers.
I love to present my findings at any given opportunity, so, I presented at LASUG and SUG Bangalore on my experience with Coveo and the problem solving opportunity it has given me.
I also participated in Hackathon conducted last year and had fun exploring new technologies Sitecore has to offer.
