I’m not going to lie; Without a doubt, 2022 was the best year of my life. Here are a few highlights.

Won a Merit Award at NBQSA

January 22, 2022

NBQSA is the best platform for the Sri Lankan ICT community to showcase their workmanship and benchmark with the broader industry.

My team and I were able to achieve the best possible results during our university days.

We won the merit award for Business Category of National Best Quality Software Awards (NBQSA) for Real-Time AR-Based Tool for Digital Media Production (Lumoz)

We would like to have this opportunity to thank SLIIT, our supervisor Dr. Shaym Reyal, co-supervisor Thusithanjana Thilakarathna, and everyone who guided us toward this achievement.

I got a full-time Software Engineering job

February 03, 2022

Finally, I got my dream job as a full-time software Engineer before my graduation. I made a lot of sacrifices to get this and finally made my dream come true in 2022. That's why I said this was my favorite year of my life.

I Graduated from the Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology (SLIIT)

March 04, 2022

Another milestone in my life! Officially graduated BSc (Hons) in Software Engineering from SLIIT. I want to thank my parents for all their love and support throughout the last 4 years. You both are a priceless blessing in my life.

SLIIT Thank you for the 4 years of memories, knowledge, love, and almost everything. Thanks to all of my lecturers and Instructors. And I thank all of my friends, who have been there to share memories, teach if I miss a lecture, and graduate with me.

Kubernetes Community Days 2022

Kubernetes Community Days Sri Lanka (KCD Sri Lanka) 2022 is a community-organized event supported by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) to help grow and sustain the Kubernetes and cloud-native community. It gathers adopters and technologists from open source and cloud-native communities for education, collaboration, and networking.

I got a chance to join the organizing team and Designing Team of KCD Sri Lanka 2022.

Attending In-Person Event after a long time

I miss the in-person events for 2years. This year I got an opportunity to organize GitHub Universe and attend Sri Lanka's Largest Tech Conference DEVFEST 2022.

MESSI Won The World CUP

December 18, 2022

My 2022 year finally ended full of happiness. The Greatest Player of all time Lionel Andres Messi has finally been crowned the greatest trophy in football.

No player ever in the history of football won the World Cup, Copa America, Olympic Games, Champions League, Club World Cup, Ballon d'Or, and Golden Shoe.

Until Leo Messi showed up. All these achievements together just seem to be impossible.

The greatest of all time in football history, Leo Messi!

finally would like to extend my deepest gratitude to all those who helped make this year a truly amazing one. This includes my family, bosses in the tech industry, and many others whose names I may not have mentioned.
