One of the perks of my new job is working with an amazing team of developers that live and work in Bangalore, India.
So, for the first time ever, I’ve traveled to Asia, I stopped in Singapore and I’m now in Bangalore.
Yahoo has a few offices in BLR (the one pictured is on MG Road) and there are lots and lots of people that work here. In fact, there are more Yahoos in Bangalore now than there were worldwide when I started with the company.
I’m learning a lot on this trip, building some great relationships and I’ve been inspired by the spirit of the folks here. Everyone here is excited, passionate and wanting to figure out how to get the best stuff done quickly. (especially the APG team here). And seeing different cultures firsthand is so much better than reading or being told about them.
I’ll post a little later about some of my key learnings about South East Asian markets…
