I am glad to write that the much awaited year of the year for me is here. Yes, we finally have a date for the Community TechEd 2011, hosted by Bangalore DotNet User Group (BDotNet). Book your calendars for Mar 5 and Mar 6, 2011 – a weekend which will be filled with technology in Bangalore.

This event was originally planned for Jan 22/23 but due to some unforeseen situations we had to call it off at the last moment. After putting all the logistics in place, we finally managed to get the dates from all the concerned people and Mar 5 and 6 is the day to witness the biggest technical event in Bangalore.

I am super excited because this is my first event for the year 2011 and expecting a bigger crowd than ever. This time I will be speaking on “OData – Open Data for the Open Web”. My talk is inspired by the session “OData: There’s a Feed for that” by Pable Castro, Software Architect on the odata team at Microsoft.

On the speakers list we have some great people lined up. Although we will be missing our 2 international speakers we had lined up in January. Nevertheless we have some exciting speakers up on the podium. On the topic list lined up for the 2 days – we have WCF, WF, WPF to Windows Phone 7. What is special is a separate track being planned out for IT Pro’s. Our own BITPro is gonna be spear heading the IT Pro track with some interesting topics.

Here is a glimpse of the flier I have done for my slide deck.

So see you all there on Mar 5/6. If you wanna catch me live on the stage, don’t forget to attend my session on Saturday.

Till next time, Happy Coding. Code with passion and decode with passion.
