There is a lot of really interesting software technology work going on in Pune. Unfortunately most people (including people in Pune) don’t know about most of it. PuneTech.com has been created to fill this gap. It brings together in one place all information about interesting software technology in Pune – the companies, the tech user groups and organizations, the people, and the technologies, the news and the events.
PuneTech has been running since March 2008, and in this short time it has been very successful in filling the information gap that existed in the tech ecosystem in Pune. The PuneTech blog reaches about 3000 RSS/Email subscribers and many more direct visitors (this figure is for May 2011). The PuneTech wiki is slowly adding more and more useful data (see, for example, the page on tech user groups and organizations in Pune). The PuneTech calendar has become the most comprehensive source of information about tech events in the city.
Who runs PuneTech?
PuneTech is a community-driven, non-commercial initiative. To ensure that the content remains free from bias and vested interests, we do not accept any money, from any source, for any purpose whatsoever. PuneTech was started by, and is mostly run by Navin Kabra. Amit Paranjape is a key advisor and evangelist for PuneTech, and one of the top volunteers. The friends of PuneTech provide us with strategic guidance from time to time. Another special mention goes to the Pune OpenCoffee Club (an informal club of Pune startups), which has a close symbiotic relationship with PuneTech. There are a number of other people, too numerous to mention, who contribute in varying degrees.
