Bangalore hosted what may be termed as Indias first JavaScript conference known as “jsFoo” on Oct 1. As part of the conference i had proposed one session and was selected for the final schedule. So i was one of the speakers on the speakers list for the conference. To know more about the event, check out my previous post here : “Speaking at jsFoo – Indias First JavaScript Conference”.

jsFoo - Indias First JavaScript conference

As usual i was busy preparing the slides till the last moment. So i had to skip most of the morning sessions that happened. Landed at the venue close to mid day. First thing that struck me was all 3 rooms that were conducting the sessions were almost full. Many more were seen in the lobby doing small group discussions. I had not expected this many people for a paid event on a Saturday and that too for a topic like JavaScript. One thing is for sure JavaScript is now going mainstream. This may be because of – in my opinion – to the facts like Node.JS and Win 8 now supporting JavaScript as the first class citizen to develop metro styled UI apps. Nevertheless was happy to see so many enthusiastic crowd for JavaScript.

I delivered a session titled “Consuming Open Data using DataJS“. The talk was to highlight the fact about a new open sourced JavaScript library from Microsoft known as “dataJS”. My session was conducted in room 2 at 2:15 to 3:00 PM. I had around 15 to 20 people who sat through the 45 minute session. After i received my feedback for the session i noticed that 10% had given me +1 as the rating for the session.

Here is my slide deck used for the session:

If you had attended my session, do let me know your feedback on the session. It will help me for my future sessions.

Till next time, Happy Coding. Code with passion, Decode with patience

  • Lohith, your 10% positive rating was across everyone who submitted a feedback form. For your own session, 15 gave you +1, two 0, and none -1. That’s an excellent rating from the folks who attended. Not all sessions are suitable for a large audience, and that’s okay.

    • Absolutely agree with you Kiran. It was an excellent event organization. Looking forward to many more of these events and would like to be part of them in future also :)

    Lohith, 

    That’s good news. Congrats! I did not know about this event. Is there some way to know when these kind of events occur.

    Regards,
    Naveen.
