This January I am completing Four years of my life in Flip Media – a company that works like my passions. This is like my second family with a lot of amazing people from around the globe.

I was at Flip Trivandrum – Flip Media’s Tech hub, in the beginning of my career. The late night hard works and Fun life we gone through, was a great experience in my life there. 2 years before I moved to Flip Headquarters at Dubai, to join the core products team.

Most of the time I was working on development of Navisite CMS and its predecessor Chameleon.Each and every day we were going through some state of the art new technologies and researching on the best possible solution for our clients.

Working with the amazing people in my team – Shuja, Imthi, Dinesh Lalvani and Yogesh, is one of the best experiences I am having in Flip. The stuff that changing day by day, Modern development procedures, constant flow of new ideas and concepts and “Have fun” kind of work life in Flip, made me love this company more and more.

In Flip everyone is known with their own special abilities, most of them has their popular blogs, twitter accounts, music career, cooking, traveling etc & etc .We share them and enjoy it here.

I have a lot of things to say about my company, but I can’t add all of them here. But you may experience it by joining Flip by checking any suitable positions opened at our Careers web page.

Finally after more than one year, I updated my blog. Unfortunately may be due to  a lazy digital life style, I forgot my blog for a while :)

I started thinking about updating my blog after  Shuja posted his long awaited blog post entry, struggling to blog.

When Ambarish started his blog, he asked me some help on setting up. He linked my blog on his blog. This also gave me more strength to update my blog.

From Flip Trivandrum most the guys started blogging. And Muhammed shameer blogged about the Flip Trivandrum bloggers. All started twittering, and Saifudeen said twitter is for lazy bloggers.  All these new happenings  made me update my blog again for new start.

Updates

  1. Blog theme is updated with the iBlog theme by Andrew Powers and Pagelines Design, inspired by Apple – also in these days I switched to mac from Linux, will update about this in upcomming posts :) .
  2. Edited the theme to make it work with my Open id authentication – my blog URL is my Open ID. Added my “photoblog” page back in, by a small hack
  3. Added plugin  All in One SEO Pack .
  4. Added Lightbox Plus plugin to make my old lightbox stuffs work.- There exists lot of amazing alternatives for lightbox these days will updates with similar one later.

Since my wordpress installation was a bit older some existing plugins made problems while updating to latest. With wordpress plugin autoinstall features everything went very easy.

We celebrated a day in Flip Media Trivandrum on traditional kerala style, wearing ‘Mundu’ s. Iyad and Imthiaz joined the celebration. See the fun on photos.
