Sessions looking forward to at GIDS-2011

This is the 4th time I would be attending Great Indian Developer Summit- GIDS and for the information- have attended it all the times since its inception. So does that become a kind of record? šŸ˜› GIDS-2008, GIDS-2009 and then GIDS-2010 (Wasnt able to blog about 2010 as I was busy with other works and wasn’t able to attend the sessions properly). As usual I have registered for the Java, Web and Workshop sessions of GIDS-2011 and looking forward for another exciting days of learning. So I thought why not list down the sessions I am looking forward to:

GIDS.Web Sessions:

  • jQuery at Work: A Beginner’s Guide (Speaker: Tom Marrs)- This should be a starting point for my JavaScript framework learning- I have been planning to do this for about 2 years now.
  • JavaScript – There’s a Real Language In There (Venkat Subramaniam)- A talk about the usefulness of JavaScript. I always thought JavaScript to be a client side language, but it can also be used as a server side language(node js). Another reason am interested in this session is because its delivered by Venkat- who is one of my favorite speakers.
  • Programming with HTML5 (Venkat Subramaniam)- Again another new HTML specification- Shows lot of promise, competing against the likes of Flex etc..
  • Tomorrow’s Tech Today (Scott Davis)- Session by another great speaker, surely not going to miss this. Might complement to the above session. That would be like increase in HTML5 Gyan šŸ™‚

GIDS.Java Sessions:

GIDS.Workshop Sessions:

Overall looks like an interesting GIDS šŸ™‚ Stay tuned for more posts on GIDS-2011.
