Pycon India 2010

Last weekend (25th and 26th sep) got another chance to attend the much awaited conference 'Pycon India 2010'. Registered a month before the event.
It is just like a festival for python progammers, developers , newbies.
It was my first ever conference which is related to Python.
The conference consists of tight schedules of talks from the experienced people in python.
The conference running in 3 different auditoriums simultaneously, people were attended topics of their interests.
FOSSEE was conducted an interesting session about introduction about python for newbies and engineers, that was much helpful for those who new to python.
There were lot of interesting talks happens.
I liked much sessions, here are the few in that
*Introduction to python and how i learnt it
*Python on Mobile phones
*Building multimedia applications using GStreamer and python

and i missed the hit session of this conference 'Device interfacing with python and ZIO.
I won't worry about the missed session because this time Pycon conference has arranged to distribute dvd's,
which contains all the content (videos and slides) of the conference will be available for people who want them. I guess dvd costs Rs600/-

I got the chance to attend the 'barcamp Bangalore' today.
This event usually happens twice a year.
It was nice and better experience than my previous barcamp(bcb4) in 2007.
But this time the event was scheduled for only one day , previous bcb's usually had the 2 day schedule.
This time i somehow managed to attend 4-5 sessions, that too more towards Mobile development platform and application related.

1 Visualizing Government Data
2 A killer Mobile app Framework - Sencha Touch
3 SEO 101 , Local search and Universal Search Optinization
4 Open discussion : smartphone platform wars !
5 Android programming for Desktop Programmers.

It was nice meeting folks after a long time.
