The day started a bit early today as we have to present a small session at Community Tech Days @ Hyderabad which was confirmed today itself.
The event went very well, over 200 attendees have attended the event. Speakers from various states came to Hyderabad to attend the event.
I first met Harish Ranganathan, my favorite evangelist just after entering the hall.
Hima Bindu delivered the first session on Web Development Enhancements in VS 2010 which was very interactive and informative, explained about the enhancements in VS 2010 in the Web Development domain. Next Arun Ganesh spoke on WCF – A Developer’s Perspective, which pulled out some interesting points on WCF. After this, we got a chance to give out our mini session on Hyderabad Techies. 🙂
It was really a great experience to stand infront of Tech Don’s and deliver a session (especially for a guy like me). That’s why, I was a bit tensed in the beginning, but covered later 🙂
We got many appreciations and compliments from some great people over there (both personally and regarding Hyderabad Techies).
Next sessions are IT Pro realted. Didn’t expect many developers to these sessions as it is for administrators ans IT Pros’. But, to our surprise, there are more number of developers than administrators.
Hariveer and Muqeet delivered the sessions on VS Lab Management 2010 and IIS 7.5 for Administrators.
The last but not least is Windows 7 – Core OS Enhancements and how it would matter our Applications by Vijay Raj. (I was scared after reading this big title at first). At first, I thought that it was some thing like promotion to Windows 7. But, it is not! The session went in a rational manner describing the facts of Windows 7 and its development. This was the most jovial and fun-filled session of all the sesions in the event. We really enjoyed the session like anything. The way he explained and the examples he used to describe was very funny.
I really had a great time with Vijay today, both before and after his session.
Today is a most memorable day in my life which I would never forget in my life. I am very happy and proud to be a part of the Event.
Looking forward for the next CTD…
Good to see that the dates for the Community Tech Days have been confirmed.
It’s now set for 24th January at Microsoft IDC in Hyderabad.
The event has a great line up of sessions and speakers, and its a nice opportunity for developers and IT Pros to know about the enhancements in Microsoft technologies right from Microsoft and other experts too.
This event is FREE of cost. You can register for the In-Person Event here.
If it is not possible for you to come the the venue, don’t worry… there is a LIVE of the Event. You can view the sessions right from your work station. Here is the link to register for Online Event.
I’d recommend the event, especially if you want to get up to speed on enhancements in Microsoft and .NET related.
