KPIT making its mark @ 5th Pune Barcamp

-> My First Presentation with my close friend Pramila on eLearning 2.0
-> First time 2 girls presenting at Barcamp
-> First time KPIT Guys at Barcamp
-> First time KPIT presenting on Oracle Middleware Fusion and SAML
I experienced all of this for the first time at 5th Pune Barcamp, that’s how this BCP is special for me.

I had 2 sleepless days, busy in preparing, learning and researching on eLearning 2.0
Friday night we were awake and working on our PPT and finally delivered our presentation at 12.30 pm in front of 30 + audience.

The purpose of our presentation was very clear; We wanted to make people aware of eLearning and wanted them to educate others, so that India becomes a major contributor towards eLearning 2.0.

We concluded with an open debate on “Classroom training vs eLearning”
I could say that our presentation was successful as everyone had some thing or other to speak over it, thus witnessing our purpose getting fulfilled.

The Best part for me was to see KPIT guys being there and contributing towards this event.
> Saumajit the Webservices guys delivered a session on SAML
> Tara the Trainer spoke about Oracle Middleware Fusion
> Sadha the youngest employee of KPIT promises me to be a presenter at the next BCP
> Ravish Oracle consultant and an inspired hacker doing live blogging about BCP

All of this and many more made BCP the free camp rocking.

Bhavya & Pramila, your presentation was great. Whatever effort you put into preparing for it, especially the two sleepless nights, was all good because I think it was one of the most well-presented talks of #BCP5. (See for example this tweet.) Unfortunately I missed the first half of it, and wished I hadn't.

Hi all,

I am working for a software integrator company. My projects includes working on Java and Ruby on Rails and Ajax. I think Web Services is really cool. We also recently have to now work on REST and they are talking about mashups and Struts. Can anyone tell me if there are some good training or conferences so that me and my team members can get to speed with these technologies. Learning from books is not my cup of tea, even not when I was doing engineering ;)

All the help that group members can provide in this regard is much appreciated.

Hi Vaibhavi,

There are several online resources available that you just google for. If any of your team like to read then quality books from wiley and oreilly cover such technologies in detail.

I also highly recommend you could attend the upcoming Great Indian Developer Summit ( that is covering Java, Agile, REST, JAX-RS, mashups, .NET, Rich Web, JPA, SOA, rich user experiences, Spring, Groovy and more. They have most of the creators of these technologies as speakers. My team is attending this summit 22-25 apr at IISc campus where we are attending the web conference on April 23 and java on April 24. We have been able to get very good discounts. Maybe all those who are interested from your group can sign up together and get a good bargain from them. what say? I also attended last year's conference and had a really cool time.

In Hyderabad there is Sun Tech Days with some sun speakers.

@Vaibhavi: I am sure Anaz has answered your question. I too am a Java fan. Would love to learn all these Sun technologies. I plan to attend Great Indian Developer Summit & Sun Tech Days but have no big team as such. Let me know if you could help registering me with your team. Kindly reply back to for further communication.

@anaz: That was very informative. I wish to be a part of Great Indian Developer Summit & Sun Tech Days. As I don’t have a big group to take the advantage of the discount, can you include me in your team for registration? Kindly reply to for further communication & discussions.
