Those who missed the developer conference 2011 by Kolkata Geeks, this blog is for them. I tried to communicate all of my friends, colleagues, students and corporate clients. Some of them attained, but not all of them. I feel, due to different other prgrams/assignments attaining this kind of sessions takes a backseat.
Not a problem, I know you wanted to attain. So, writing this blog. My target is to give you a feeling about those sessions and also I want to give you the links which might be beneficial to you.
This was a Launch Event for Microsoft Office 365. This was also a technical event for developers working with Microsoft technology. My feeling about the day was FANTASTIC.

Mr. Amit Bansal.
Mr. Amit Bansal hosted the entire conference with his fantastic anchoring capability. He has got a very good sense of humor and applied those throughout the day. Really that made the conference a rocking one.
Mr. Abhishek Kant from Microsoft came to address the launch event of Office 365. This was a very informative session we witnessed. He shared Office 365 means Ms-Office in Cloud. Really an informative speech it was and inspired most of the participants to use it.
After Office 365 launch Mr. Amit Bansal came to deliver his fantastic speech about the topic "SQL Server 2012 (Denali).". You will get latest update about him in http://www.amitbansal.net/. He also maintains a site named http://www.sqlservergeeks.com/. The latest updates and fantastic articles on SQL Server we can have from both the sites. I must say, he really is a good anchor.
http://abhijitjana.net/. He also maintains another site named http://dailydotnettips.com/. He already has shared the discussion he made in DevCon2011 on the first site mentioned.
http://kolkatageeks.com./ presented the topic with sample code. He already has shared the discussion in his blog at http://www.abhisheksur.com/. He is also a very consistent blogger from Kolkata.
Finally, the conference ended with some quiz and distributing some goodies. I must thanks to the student members who made the possible.
This type of conference makes sense. Software Engineering is a very young field and nurturing technology tips & tricks in my opinion is highly required and have become very urgent.
Hope you enjoyed the write up. Please put your comment, which will make me interested to write more blogs.
