Pune Barcamp2 was simply fantastic! Organised in Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies and Research last Saturday(16th Dec) was heard to be one of the most well managed Barcamp of its kind.
I wanted to speak but hadn't registered myself. When I reached SICSR, I found one of the evening slot was still empty. Dibya inspired me to "JUST fill it in" and I did it! The topic was "RICH UI using FLASH + PHP +MySQL"
I wasn't prepared at all! Went to a quieter place and started to prepare! After two hours I managed to modify some of my earlier animation and bring up something like a presentation!! Haha!!
Meanwhile I attended Freeman's session. He was talking on "How to start a start up". Nice talk. Wanted to know more of it but immediately was lunch break.
But somehow the lunch got delayed and I very quickly managed another session on Mobile Application. It was a nice session based on PDAs. The speaker was from TCS whose name I forgot.
Lunch followed. Nice fried rice and sweeties....
I had a session at 5pm but It somehow got preporned as Brajeshwar's demo on Photoshop CS3 got postponed or I DUNNO! I talked the stuff which I had developed some time ago. One small flash weather widget which would fetch data from weather.com and also an online showroom which website which I did for West Mill USA shoe store.
I also showed some code in Actionscript and PHP.
My session was followed by Abdul Qabiz's talk on Apollo, the product coming up in 2007 by adobe.
Networking dinner followed at SIMS and this time I was a volunteer! some good amount of networking happened. Excellent food!
Thanks to the "So Called Organisers", The volunteers(including me) and all the speakers and everyone!
Catch up some pics of the event...
I wonder Kolkata never had any such events?!! I am very serious in Organizing it in Kolkata!
