A well coordinated and content rich event. Not to mention great talks and networking. There were 3 key note speeches followed by individual content based talks. These included writing apps on multiple platforms, managing the applications/support, various infrastructure at our disposal.There was also a tribute to Steve Jobs by many speakers who gave their beautiful perspectives of the great man. There were contests as well, prizes to be given away on the last day of the event.

The key note talks were given from Nokia, SISO and Tata Communications.

Multiple stalls were setup at the Expo area by organisations, showcasing their products and services. The food was good and there was good response from the volunteers.

Awaiting the second day of the event to start. And yeah, awaiting the goodies as well. Venue: IIsc Bangalore.

Nice work saltmarch media.

Got this doubt last week when I couldn’t get out of my house after 10 AM. Was too sunny and hot. Moreover, with frequent and long power outages it only got worse.
I was taught in school when I was a kid that august brings autumn and september ends in winter months(May not be accurate but I hope my point is made). This looks to be so not what is happening now, just as CO2 being less than 1% of the total air composition(as per a textbook). Oh wait!!! These two are actually related. CO2 much greater than what it should be and needless to say “Global Warming”.
We are supposed to re-write history…not meteorology or climatology. Have you ever heard anyone saying “that guy re-wrote meteorlogy”?? Burning fossil fuels and other carbon based “stuff” has caused this mishap, which imminently is going to do something BIG, Veeeery BIG. Great blockbusters have suggested future calamities. Enough to be deemed as “Mother nature’s revenge”.
My point here is not to ask anyone to look towards greener methods, cleaner fuels, stop the cutting of trees, etc..(which is the need of the hour)
All I want is that I don’t want to use an air conditioner in December or January to keep cool.
