Don’t miss tech events: Subscribe to the PuneTech Calendar

You are probably missing many, many interesting technology events that are happening in Pune. (In spite of the fact that you’re subscribed to PuneTech – because you are not subscribed to the PuneTech calendar)

Every week, there are at least 5-7 technology events in Pune. And they are all listed in the PuneTech Calendar. However, because the number is so high, we don’t post all of them to the PuneTech main page.

The fact that you got this article, means that you are subscribed to the PuneTech main page. However, we only selected events are posted to the PuneTech main page. All others are posted to the PuneTech Calendar, which has a different feed/subscription of its own.

For example, you were probably aware of C. Mohan’s talk on the Global Technology Outlook, and you probably know about the Turing 100 Lecture on Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie. However, you are probably not aware of the following events all happening in the next 4 days:

  • A talk on Big Data with Hadoop
  • A Visual Studio Tech Tour by the Pune Microsoft Technologies User Group
  • An MCCIA Pune National conference on Cyber Security, where policy makers and decision makers from the Indian Army, Police, and other relevant Government organizations have been called for interactions with the security/tech community in Pune.
  • In-Product Email Marketing by K. Shashi, founder of Bandhan.com
  • IPMA (Indian Product Manager’s Association) Pune’s Event: 5 Things Every Product Manager should know about Agile
  • 2-day Scrum Gathering India Regional Event for Agile Enthusiasts (Paid)

And a few more.

All you need to do is click here and sign up get email alerts whenever an event is added to the PuneTech Calendar, or if you’re one of the 10 remaining people in the world still using RSS, here is the RSS feed, or you can directly import the calendar.

Subscribe to get PuneTech comments by Email or RSS

PuneTech logoMost PuneTech readers get PuneTech home delivered via our by email or via RSS (free!). Which is great – that is how we recommend keeping in touch with what going on in tech in Pune.

However, one disadvantage of that is that you miss out on all the comments that readers leave on the post. Compared to some other sites, we do not get a whole lot of comments, but the ones we do get are usually good quality comments that add something to the post and we felt that there is a need to allow our readers to get a RSS feed or daily email of the latest comments. So here goes: Get comments on PuneTech posts by our readers via email or via RSS.

To motivate you, I have listed here a few recent posts that garnered some interesting comments/discussions, and where reading the comments would improve your understanding of the material covered in the parent post.

So stay in touch with all the comments via email or via RSS.

Also, we kept hearing from some of our readers that sometimes they would miss an event even though they had read about it in PuneTech because they forgot about it. To tackle this, we have started a (free) PuneTech events SMS reminder service. After you sign up, you’ll get an SMS when we find out about an interesting event, and then another SMS reminder one day before the event.

And, for the really selective and really motivated reader, we also provide the option to subscribing (RSS only!) to just articles from specific categories, or articles with a specific tag. For example, you can subscribe to the RSS feed for all articles in the “events” category, or just the “featured” articles, or you can subscribe to one of the many tags that we use, like all articles about startups, or linux, or those somehow relating to the tech community in Pune. Figuring out all the categories and tags, and the corresponding RSS feeds is left as an exercise for the motivated reader. And this is only for particularly selective readers who do not wish to subscribe to our full feed (i.e. the regular feed of PuneTech articles).

Final note: the regular PuneTech articles subscription (email / RSS), the PuneTech comments subscription(email / RSS), and the PuneTech SMS reminder service are three different, independent services. Subscribing to one does not automatically subscribe you to the others. You have to subscribe to each one separately.
