Vis-a-vis Developers from India (Including myself)

The Indian Teaching Paradigm needs change. Instead of testing students for their memory by making them take tests to check if they remember the things that they can find any time at the world-wide-web, we seriously need to start focussing on something that is more useful, actually relevant and a great asset for the career growth.

Although Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V has been and will remain a helpful tool forever, we need to seriously find more creative ways to do things. We don't need to do different things, we need to do things differently. Even if learning new things is not possible sometimes, we need to remember that implementing the knowledge and creativity in a different way is always new and real classy.

JioMeet was a reflection on India's take on China's app. Even if they could not think of adding a new feature, they could have made those present, more presentable. This action actually gives wrong image of Indian Developers.

Hence, let's start appreciating and promoting self-learning, creativity, actual knowledge (not memory), and skills. Because no matter where you are in this world, these assets are the ones that truly define the word "Professionalism".

Totally agree with you. In India, we judge the students based on their cramming power and leave the other ones who have better skills and creativity. Thus, because of all this, you can see the JioMeet platform. I think, we have to take some serious step towards the self education, have to work on our skills and as you say "assets are the ones that truly define the word "Professionalism". So, self-learning is must for everyone as It always remains with you.

Yes. Teaching is a two-ended process. Even if we have an excellent teacher, it depends on us, the students on how good we take the information and process it. As we define in CS, information is processed data and knowledge is processed information. Learning is the process of converting information into knowledge.
