I'm excited to interview Santhakumar, so let's get started!


Who are you, where are you, and what do you do? What are your specialty technologies?

Hello Everyone, I am Santhakumar Munuswamy from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. I am 34 years old and living with my lovely family (Mom, Dad, Wife, Son and Brothers). I have completed Bachelor of Science in 2004 from Govt. Arts College, Chennai. I am a first-generation graduate in my family and employed in IT. In 2006, I started my IT career as a Trainee Software Engineer for Lambent Softsystem Pvt. Ltd in Microsoft Technologies like VB.NET and SQL Server. After a year I have started to work in Asp.Net, C# PDA, Crystal Reports, Web based application and Device based application. Since 2010, I am working as a Technical Lead at Pointel Solutions, India. My work here is developing applications using C#, ASP.Net, WCF, SQL Server that work under Genesys platform for providing contact center solution.


I am a passionate .Net Developer, technology enthusiast, author and founder of My Mantra is “Learning is my passion; Sharing is my love!” I share the stuffs that I learn from my day to day activities through my blog. During leisure hours I do writing articles, researching .Net technologies and learn advanced concepts evolving in today’s technologies.

I am a positive thinker and always believe in myself, and this kind of attitude makes me to achieve my goals. I am actively spending my valuable time to communities like Microsoft TechNet, C# Corner and other community websites.

Apart from these contribution of work, I give importance to my family which I love a lot and love to spend time with them during spare time. Especially with my son, who is two years old now.


What are you big projects right now?

My dream is to develop my own products for IoT Application. I have started to learn the Internet of Things (IoT) and watching  closely on IoT developments in many companies and   researching a use case for the implementation of IoT in PoC application.

I am working on Microsoft's certification (MCSD) for this year. I am looking for doing certifications in Internet of Things (IoT) for the first quarter of next year.

I am spending my free time in learning new technologies such as Wearables, HoloLens, Mobility, IoT and practicing sample projects by building code and running it.


I have been awarded as C# Corner MVP in 2016 and received many monthly awards from Microsoft TechNet and C# Corner. I written articles and published it in the following community websites:

What is TechNet Wiki for? Who is it for?

TechNet Wiki is an open platform for learning and sharing the Microsoft technology. I am feeling happy to be a part of this community and it’s awesome platform for all Microsoft lovers, passionate writers or authors, students and who wants to share the their experience around the globe and keep connected with the Microsoft technology legends.

What do you do with TechNet Wiki, and how does that fit into the rest of your job?

First I like to thank other authors, who shared their articles in social media. I come up with such articles and I saw the announcement of TechNet Guru Competition happenings. I was eager join the competition, so I started to learn, write and share the Microsoft Technology stuffs in the TechNet platform.

As I mentioned earlier, I am a technology enthusiastic. Microsoft TechNet is really helpful to learn latest buzz and innovative solution and provide real world example shared by others and also share our own ideas with others.


What are your favorite Wiki articles you’ve contributed?

In general, I love all of my articles contributed to Microsoft TechNet so far.

I like to write articles about the new technology, so that I do research and learn more about it. I find newer technologies are always appreciated by readers, since I get more response for couple of my articles, were new technologies are discussed. Below are my list of favorite articles especially the first two.

I would like to thank you all the authors, supporters for making my articles to reach more readers in the world.

Do you have any tips for new Wiki authors?

For new authors, I would like to suggest few things. You should have a passion to learn new things and sharing knowledge to others. This makes them to get involved and research more on the technical concepts.

As a Chinese proverb says,

I hear. I forget.

I see. I remember.

I do, I understand.

Newbies should implement their own ideas for understanding the concepts. This will make a way for them to achieve in their field. As an author I would suggest new authors to practicing the guidelines tech net community standards when writing articles. They can follow few of the document styles:

  • Title
  • Introduction to the subject
  • Implementing the ideas or solution
  • Procedures for developing a sample code (This may differ based in the domain you are)
  • Code snippets
  • Conclusion &
  • Reference section

Finally, you can share the articles on social medias such as Facebook, LinkedIn and twitter. It will be impact to reach more readers. You can reach me at:
