Moving to Germany

If you follow me, you know I have worked as a consultant for the last year. I have decided to take the next step in my career and move to Hamburg this week.

It was a difficult choice, and I wanted to stay in india and grow with the community; the Indian tech community will always have a special place in my heart. I became GDE; you all voted me to be the First GitHub star from India and gave me lots of love.

Some personal and professional decisions led to this.

  • Better community outreach: Being in Europe will give me access to a broad community, as the timezone in india sometimes affects the participation in many conferences and meetups.

  • My future ambitions: It is not a secret that I want to work as a Developer Advocate one day. Last year, I got a few calls, but many discussions due to salary and location expectations didn't go ahead.

I will not miss the Indian community at all, I will keep rooting for you all, and if you need any help from me, I am just a DM away. I was lucky to meet a few of you before moving.

Six years ago, I came to Pune and got everything I came looking for in this City: a better life for my family, money, and peaceful life. Wish us that we get the same thing in a new country as we start a new chapter of our life.

Congrats to this next big chapter!

And don't get frustrated by the bureaucratic, German authorities. I live in Germany for over 9 years now and my heart still skips a beat when I see a physical letter by the Finanzamt πŸ™ˆ

What was the most difficult or annoying part in moving to germany as a professional?
I once heard someone say heβ€˜d pay money to not have to deal again with everything that comes with relocating to germany.
Wonder what that is…

No idea, my employer provided me all the support from Visa to relocation, so was easy for me.
