About "Know your CEan"

Hi Folks,

We have had a great series of interviews on CE in the recent past. Just to brush your memories and to let the new guys know, we have interviewed Dan Kukendall, Director of NTEC, Jessica Arnold, OutLook Product Manager for Microsoft to name a few. Currently we are running an interview with Sam Khavari, Director of Enginering for Zimbra. And there are many more to come...

Just a thought came to mind that we CEans are as talented and as good as any one in the world. So why not try to know more about our own people? Who knows, we can be one of the next Bill Gates or Richard Bransons of the world? I shared my idea with few CEans and it was instantly accepted. We randomly ran throuh different profiles on CE and decided to pick and choose any one who has been regular on CE.

Watch out for the next post. Who knows? It might be you?

As you see, we have created a new sub-section for 'Know Your CEan'. We'll periodically keep on posting interviews of our own CEans in this section. Feel free to ask questions to the CEans.

But please refrain from starting new threads in this section. New threads may go into our regular 'Introductions' section 😀

Keep doing a great job in the world (and of course on CE). We are spying 24x7, who knows? you'll be the next to appear in this section! 😁

Old thread! But it feels so nostalgic to read it all over again. Many of today's active CEans were not active when we started this initiative. More than a year now, and we have come a long way. Gee! feels so good 😁

The mock interview thread also needs a fresh look. What say chiefs?

Sure - as long as we have passionate CEans to take up the responsibility and execute it successfully.

Nice go with this session. But i feel that the forums lack the social atmosphere provided by facebook. It's really a large website with many members, but how do you think all of the CEans would have the patience to read all the texts? There should be a better alternative i guess.

P.S. There are just my observations, please ignore if irrelevant.
Got the thread 😀

@CEans - You can also give us any-kind of suggestions to conduct the Know Your CEans more well 😀

May be they don't want to reveal about their true self, which I think is perfectly fine. Many CEans don't know that we don't ask very personal questions.

KYCEan Interviews are conducted in CE for the most active CEans to know more about them. You can head over to this page- https://www.crazyengineers.com/community/forums/know-your-cean.53/
The_Big_K AbraKaDabra godfather

Okay I've been approaching CEans through PM to feature them in KYCEan section. I don't know why lot of CEans are unwilling to make it up. There may be many reasons for them; one, they don't want to disclose their originality. second, they may afraid of my questions and many more. Hence a bit about KYCEan.

1. It is only conducted for the most active and regular CEans. So you can think it's like a privilege for you 😉
2. It's just a very casual interview conducted online to know a bit about you. So that we can know you more and it helps in many ways 👍
3. You have full rights to answer as much as you want and to as many questions as you want 😁
4. No Need to get scared of questions. We don't ask your personals 😛.

So if you are interested to feature in KYCEan, you can post your willingness here or you can PM me(CEan - Sada) or CEan Reya.

I'm just tagging some members. Even others can come forward, I can't tag everyone here.

It's totally fair. CEans may not want to reveal their identity. KYCEan is just an effort to know our CEans better and you're free to answer questions of your choice. You may even choose not to answer the questions you think are personal. I hope all our CEans participate in KYCEan 😀

Ok. Take my word.
I will feature in KYC by / before my 1000th post. 😁
I have very little to share, mostly failures. I hope that will be some inspiration and guidance for CEans. 😀

Sada, sorry I didn't reply to your PM. My bad. But honestly that is very unlike me! 😔

Once CEan Sada has finalized your name, you just can't say no. 😡

😁 Alright! There is no eligibility criteria. CEan-Sada puts in lot of efforts in KYCEans (and for those who don't know; she doesn't get paid to conduct the KYCEans). And as I said earlier, we just make a simple request which you can deny. We respect your privacy & decision.

... on a related note, life's too short to be serious ☕.
KYCEan is meant to be enjoyed. 😀 Also, Sada doesn't make you feel uncomfortable at all during the interview, in fact, I've never seen such a friendly interviewer! So CEans, just go for it. I'm sure you'll love the experience! 👍

*Lot* of CEans asked me How much I would get through these interviews 😉 I used to tell them I'm getting lots of fun and loads of joy 😁

We need to start this series again we also need someone who can follow the work done by Mayur Pathak, Sada, CD and Reya.

CEan Sada seems busy but yeah these two guys are Top in the list for next KYCEan.
godfather - Though I'm busy, I can spend satleast 2-3 hours a week and that is too sufficient to set one KYCEan if someone accompany me. You and English-Scared came forward for it, Do you guys have time to spend?
