Hi Tech Pune Maharashtra 2009 Conference: 26 & 27 Feb

Hi Tech Pune Maharashtra is a two-day conference on technology that is held in Pune every year. This year, the theme is “IT in Governance” and the schedule features a number of very interesting speakers. I attended this conference last year, and live-blogged it here and here.

Here are some of the lectures that I am looking forward to. On Thursday, Dr. R.A. Mashelkar is giving a keynote speech on a vision for Pune. Mr. Vijay Kumar Gautam, the COO of the Commonwealth Games is also speaking. I had the opportunity to hear him talk at the last Hi Tech Pune conference, and I was absolutely blown away. He is a great speaker. Anil Valluri, MD of Sun Microsystems India is also speaking. Although I know nothing about him, I am hoping that as MD of Sun, he would have interesting things to say.

On Friday, afternoon, Anup Tapadia of TouchMagix will talk about product innovation. TouchMagix is my new favorite Pune startup and we are publishing an interview with Anup on PuneTech later today. So, I think that should be interesting. TouchMagix technology will also be on display on both days, so that’s another reason to go check it out.

Baba Kalyani of Bharat Forge will speak later. One of his talks that I attended started of slowly, but improved significantly later, and was worth it in the end. So that is another one that might be interesting.

There are other talks that you might find interesting. See the full schedule. The conference will be at the Hotel Orchid near Balewadi Stadium (or, to use its real name: Shri Shiv Chhatrapati Sports City Balewadi). It’s from 1:30pm to 7pm on Thursday (26th) and full day on 27th. It is free for anybody to attend, but you must register here.
