Chethan Kumar Digital designer

Since i have been working in a semiconductor industry for quite a long time and have written significant number of blogs on various topics, believe i can deliver the best when it comes to teaching, with great real time examples and tutorials.
I always believe in learning with live example and i apply the same while teaching.
I have an habit of crating a online one notes for anything i learn, so that it can be easily referred when it is required. I advice the same method to anyone i am tutoring.
