TECHNOLOGY & TRENDS
In this article I look at India's ailing situation, history of chip manufacturing and how the future holds. A brief summary is as follows: 1. India was always in need of a robust semiconductor policy which now seems to be in place 2. The first chip manufacturing facility was set-up in 1984 but a controversial fire brought it down and with that, the hope for India, at least at that time 3. India did woo a lot of companies like AMD around 2007 but the deals fell flat due to policies, infrastructure and utilities gap 4. Now with a budget outlay of $10 billion for setting up semiconductor facilities in India and the promises of deals coming out of the Semicon India 2023 conference, India seems to have taken the right step in this direction.
The world of chip manufacturing is exceedingly interesting: One Company, TSMC, produces 90% of the most advanced chips in the world. A Dutch Company, ASML, designs and manufactures one of the greatest and the most complex machines ever conceived by the human mind - The EUV lithography machine priced at USD 200 mil to USD 300 mil per piece. The Asian economies of South Korea, Taiwan, Japan and China are leading the pack in terms of chip manufacturing 4. The US is seen to be lagging behind the chip manufacturing race due to talent shortage 5. India has a long way to go in this field. The first step is to get started.
The e-learning space is one of the most exciting segments witnessing unparalled growth. It is estimated that the segment will reach a total size of $365 billion by the year 2026 led by primary markets such as the United States, India and China. From a growth perspective, APAC will be witnessing the highest growth rate largely attributed to China and India while North America will continue have the lions share of 40% of the e-learning market.
Digital Transformation is an organizational imperative and has been a core component of the overall corporate strategy. This article covers the transformation journey of New York Times, the newspaper that has more than 5 million subscribers, is one of the largest newspapers in circulation and a digital transformation case study.

The Top Learning Platforms for Developers in 2022
The world of e-learning is competitive and while organizations have their own USPs, it becomes interesting to see how they stack up once in a while.
Stack Overflow recently conducted the 2022 Developer Survey where 70,000 developers revealed how they learn and level up. To the question “what online courses or certifications do you use to learn to code? , a majority of them chose Udemy.
Udemy was followed by Coursera at the second spot followed by Codeacademy.
