Ep. 011 — Tahmid Rafi on Finding Your Path


Tahmid Rafi is the founder, editor and publisher of Dimik Prokashoni, a publishing house with a focus on books on computer programming and related topics. He co-founded Dimik Computing with Tamim Shahriar Subeen as an organization to educate and teach people the skills needed to thrive in a 21st century, high-tech world. He graduated from BUET as a computer science major, after which he joined Mukto Software as a software engineer.

This episode is a bit different in that we don't talk much about publishing or software development. What we do talk about is more human problems of defining success, failed projects and the lessons Tahmid took more from them, the education system and its fatal flaw, becoming a good teacher, meditation — how to begin and its usefulness — and so much more. I had a great time recording this episode and I hope you have a great time listening to it.
