DevConf.in Event Report


On 4th and 5th August I attended DevConf,in in Bengaluru as a speaker, which was a conference organised by RedHat to provide a platform to all local community participants to come together and share knowledge through technical talks, workshop, panel discussions, hackathon and other activities.

I arrived at Bangaluru airport on 3rd August early morning to avoid the terrific traffic and reached o hotel without facing much traffic. After reaching office I did my office work for that day.
In evening after having dinner, I did the registration in the hotel itself as registration was organised in hotel itself for speakers to save time n morning. It was really helpful, thanks Rahul and Ganesh for handling this process smoothly.
