Whew it's been a while since I last wrote. A few things have happened since the last post. I got job offer from Frappe Technologies . I had interviewed for them a few days ago and I was kind of anxious about getting the job. I already had a friend working there so I had a general idea about the work culture there, and it's great! So I was excited to join. I wanted to join the next day but as they were busy releasing v12 of their ERPNext software, I was to join on Monday, July 23. Which also happened to be when Frappe was founded 11 years ago. So my first day at work was a party. It was good fun. I've been told to work on an accounting app now, to get familiar with the companies own internal framework. It's really intitutive althought can be limiting sometimes. It's very opinionated so I don't think there will be widespread use of it, so I'll probably have to learn a new tech stack if I ever leave this company. I don't plan to as of now but if I ever do the domain knowledge of working on an ERP will surely be helpful. Anyway, nothing really happened much after the first day of work until today. Ashutosh, a friend of mine from college had also applied and gotten an interview. And that was today. I was really hoping he'd get the job as it would reduce my social anxiety around colleagues, but our CEO seems really unsure about this.

A little bit about the work culture at frappe. It is very result oriented, so you can work from home if you like and be late for work without affecting your paycheck. What matters is that you do your work in the time alloted. We get chhass (butter milk?) after lunch, as well as coffee and snacks in the office. It's gonna be hard to switch away from this work enviroment if I ever do.
