This promises to be another action packed Saturday for techies in Pune.
The day kicks off with the OpenSocial Developer Garage conference for – you guessed – developers of the OpenSocial API. With a schedule packed with two tracks of talks from morning to evening, it is the place to be if you are interested in web-2.0, and social networking (both kinds: online and offline).
In the evening, you have to choose between getting words of wisdom from a successful entrepreneur who has already sold 3 companies, or attending a panel discussion on the economic crisis: myth vs. reality. The first is a Pune OpenCoffee Club meeting, at SICSR at 5:30pm and is a talk by Nickhil Jakatdar, CEO of Vuclip.com, a Silicon Valley based mobile video startup, and COEP alumnus. He will talk about the DOs and DONTs of startups, with anecdotes from his experiences to support each. For details, see our full post about this event.
The panel discussion has been arranged by the Project Management Institute of Pune, and the idea is this: “Considering the current economic situation and various news spread all across, we sincerely feel presenting correct information and right perspective for all the industry leaders, project managers is very important.” This is at Cummins Auditorium, Navi Peth, from 4pm to 7pm. For details, see the PuneTech calendar entry for this event.
