On 13th October Teknowledge Software conducted the first "Free for All" Open Source Web Technology conference called WebOSS '07.
The event was the first of its kind to be held in Kolkata. Teknowledge Software, a software house based in Kolkata hosted the event along with WBUT as the venue sponsor.
Volunteers dressed in white T-shirts with WebOSS '07 logo worked hard to put the event together.The event started at around 11:30. I was the first one to speak and spoke on RIA: Which technology one should choose? Slides can be found here
I attended the next session by Pradeep on how to build application with AJAX. Pradeep's presentation can be found here
There was a lunch break after this which contained burgers, cakes, ladoo! and Frooti!
The next session was of Shabbir's on Speeding up your websites. A great session which included tips and tricks to speed up the sites from network and client browser point of view. Shabbir's content can be found here
The next session was of Naveen. He really went dirty into the code like Pradeep. It was really a good session and I have started respecting Perl (i'm more a PHP Guy!)
It was a good conference, the jam packed audience was eager to know more and more!
Overall, a fun event like barcamps! Its great to see such events happening in Kolkata! Go ahead Kol!
