DevCon 2004 @ Mumbai

DevCon as the name "speaks" means "Developer's Conference". DevCon is a developer event organized by the developer community for the developer community. The objective is to enable developers to request for topics which they wish to be educated about and delivery of such content is by developers who are expert speakers. It covers topics which are of interest to developers chosen by developers themselves. It was first held at Trivendrum, India, in 2003. Approx. 200 professionals attended it and was a HUGE hit!!!

Following this event, we had DevCon happening last week at Mumbai. Last year, it was only for Developers, and the topics too were developer related. Student's are not only the future of any Country, they are also the people who will carry this technology forward. Hence this year, we had two tracks, one for the professional and the second for students.

DevCon 2004 was or ganized by INETA, MumbaiUserGroup and PuneUserGroup. It was held at Thakur College of Engineering, Mumbai, India. We had a total of 100+ people who attended the developer track and 100 who attended the academic track. This is good considering it was a weekend. All our speakers got a minimum rating of 4 out of 5 and above which is excellent.

Plannings are goin on to roll out DevCon at Ahemdabad, Pune, Bangalore and Hyderabad. This was the largest volunteer led community effort in this country and it feels awesome to be a part of this group.
