Today was a great day at the Great Indian Developer Summit at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore. The excitement about WintellectNOW in India is intoxicating. Developers were thrilled to hear of our India pricing and were equally excited by the 14-day trial each attendee received just for being at the show.
We were able to spend some time with our Delhi-based WintellectNOW author, Sathyaish Chakravarthy, which was wonderful for all of us. We got a chance to know him a little better and talk with him about some additional videos he’d like to produce (keep your eyes open for those in the near future).
We were busy at the booth all day, talking with friends – old and new – about WintellectNOW. Our booth couldn’t be in a better spot, as people have to pass us to go from one room to the next. This makes for ample opportunities to chat.
Jeff delivered three talks – HTML5: The Good, the Bad, and Everything in Between; Tap and Go: Proximity Networking in WinRT; and Contracts in Windows Store Apps – to packed rooms.
The IISc grounds are beautiful – it truly is a wonderful setting for a conference. Bangalore has lush greenery everywhere you look; IISc certainly leverages its natural surroundings.
On set-up day, we saw wild monkeys climb through the trees and along the fence. I was hoping to see more today, but it wasn’t in the cards. I will make sure to have the camera handy over the next few days in hopes of seeing one!
We’re looking forward to heading back tomorrow for more wonderful conversations and (hopefully) another monkey sighting!
