The Delhi IT Professionals Meetup group successfully conducted a Multi Session : IT Trends Meetup this Sunday, December 16th 2012. The event was a tremendous success with all the interesting subjects lined up one after another, thanks to Saket Bansal, the founder of iZenbridge Consultancy Pvt Ltd ….Well, I call him the PMP guy.:)…..  All the speakers were experts in their respective fields…….( oh and did I include myself in here..:P )…and I consider myself fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful event.

The subjects included the NOSQL likes mongoDB …( Does anyone like Oracle ? oh yes the Explain Plan of their SQL’s is good and the RAC is good….but they did bought over MySQL to kill it…didn’t they ??? )

Where was I ??? oh yeah……back to the Meetup blog now……The venue was Central Blue Stone, Sector 29, Gurgaon and the event started sharp at 10 AM. The batch was a mix of interesting folks: .Entreprenuers, web techies, folks working on .Net,Java , HTML5, Node.js, Javascript

The opening session was from Sunita Biddu Entreprenuer, SEO and Social Media consultant.  Sunita threw some useful insight on some of the social media management tools like social mention, hootsuite, sproutsocial etc. Wow !!!  A wonderful session indeed.

After a wonderful tea break, there was a session on OpenShift and MongoDB. The presenter was Shekhar Gulati, an OpenShift Evangelist. This session was about how you can use MongoDB geospatial indexing capabilities to build a location aware job search application. While Shekhar was presenting his session, I was wondering about writing an Android App to develop a location based job search .:) (ofcourse !!.. I guess old habits die hard)..For all those who are new to the term openshift, it is a free, scalable, multi- language, multi-cartridge and open source platform available as a service from Red Hat.

After Shekhar’s session, it was the time for lunch ( the food was good…!! )… and ineraction with some wonderful people working on cutting edge technologies like node.js and SenchaTouch.

Post lunch, it was my session. The agenda for my session was to get any interested developer get started with Android programming. It was geared towards both newbies and experienced developers who would like to learn what it takes to get started with programming their first Android applications. Initially i had planned to make it a fully technical hands on development session, but as we had a mixed bunch of audience i decided to keep the development part of the session a little simple so that all can follow it. The first half of the session focussed on what is android, various versions of android. My favorite topic of discussion was Future of Android and I was glad to share some of the cool things in this session, such as Android@home sdk, android accessory development kit, Amkette EVO tv based on Android and Samsung Android based Camera. There is so much happening around this little green robot but within a specific time one can only talk as much. The second half of the session focussed on building a small app. The aim was to familiarise the newbie with the Android Project structure. Yes, there were some initial hiccups like eclipse installation crashing, emulator not starting, but we successfully overcame all these issues. The biggest achievement of my session was android app developed in almost half an hour by a non techie guy, Dr. Raju SMG , Managing Trustee of STOP TB India, NGO. It was encouraging to see that interest in Android as a platform is significant enough.

After my session, it was Talk on Big Data by Neha Mehta. After 45 minutes of her session, i found myself surrounded by just figures and numbers 🙂 On a serious note, I came to know of goglobe and coolinfographics. Thanks to Neha.

I enjoyed my interaction with all the attendees and got some real good feedback on my session from the participants.

All in all, it was a good break from Android and learn other things happening around and this brought me back to feed my sweet little blog which was hungry for wonderful things happening around me !!!
