Who? (Tell us about you. Your name, where you work, etc. Anything relevant to the Application.)
I am Pratik Satikunvar. Currently working as senior developer at Horizontal Integration India office. I do have 7 years of web development experience in different .Net platform starting from DNN, Webforms, MVC, Umbraco, and finally Sitecore for around 4 years.
Why Me? (Here is your chance to explain why people need to vote for you. What contributions have you made to help the community.)
My journey with Sitecore started around 4 years back. I wasn’t sure about Sitecore when I started working with it. But as i spent little time, I was sure that I will be taking this long as much I can.
Along the way I got to work with some great peoples around. The passion they carry to make difference, helped me to chase my goal. To be better everyday and to help out as much as possible.
I try to share my understandings via StackOverflow, Emails, Presentations, and especially Slack. Starting a Sitecore Slack channel just after log in to system has been a habit since long. I also shares my learning at https://pratiksatikunvar.wordpress.com/
In one of my employment, I took the role of mentor to spread Sitecore knowledge and train Non-Sitecore employees who are either working on different stack or just joining after completing their study. Good thing is, they all are running Sitecore projects on their own now.
I was also fortunate to work on some projects where I need to act as consultant. My role would be to make the already implemented Sitecore solution better and better, Make team aware of different things available in Sitecore, Help Sharepoint developers getting started on Sitecore development.
Till i write, I haven not been able to take part in any User Group or Sitecore event. But I will be presenting my first user group session at SUGIN on 30th September http://sugin.org/Session6-Sitecore-Experience-Accelerator-SXA-in-action.html. Hope I will be doing this more often.
Above all, I really enjoy working with Sitecore, Interacting with the great community, learning and sharing.
