On December 20th we were invited to present at the Developer Garage in Pune. This conference was organized by a couple of OpenSocial enthusiasts. It was hosted by Thoughtworks in their Pune office and sponsored by Sun Microsystems. The event was attended by more than 130 developers.
It was a very packed schedule and we were able to cover a lot, starting from the OpenSocial basics to advanced sessions on topics such as Latency in OpenSocial apps and Apache Shindig Architecture.
Aparna from Sun Microsystems' evangelism group demoed Zembly, a platform for creating and hosting OpenSocial apps. Agriya Technologies gave a presentation on the integration of OpenSocial with their social networking products.
There was also a parallel workshop to develop an Orkut app, "India I Care", for an NGO at the event. Developers were able to complete the basic scenarios and are now fine-tuning the app before it goes live.
Some photographs from the event can be found here.
Aparna, Aman Jain, and Amit Kumar also blogged about the event.
