As with a lot of other posts on my blog, this one is also delayed. I mean, A LOT delayed. The event happened in June, so you get the idea.
One tendency I’ve consistently observed in this region is developers’ reliance on jugaad. That is, they try to “duct-tape” their way through the code if they cannot find out the root cause in a reasonable amount of time. I know, we have all been there once. But this culture is less pronounced in technically more mature cities such as Bangalore.
From our consistent promotions on meetup.com, we got 400+ RSVPs! But going by our earlier experience, we weren’t expecting more than 30 (10% of total). Around 50 actually turned up. Man, that was no less than a mini-success.
Coming to the event’s agenda. We planned it as a sequence of conference-style talks by industry experts. For more, I’ll probably just copy-paste from our meetup.com page.
Learn from startup journeys, hands-on exercises and product showcases
Don’t worry, we have all been there. Learning is a great way to improve. But is there a better way? Of course there is: it’s called “hands-on experience”.
Here are some pics from the event:
