The great Indian developers summit 2012 at IISc,bangalore was the fifth edition organized by Saltmarch media. This version was better and bigger then the previous four versions according to the junta that attended the past summits. I attended all the 3 tracks on .NET, Java and Web and also the workshop track on the last day. Overall the tracks were informative and the workshops were helpful and not to forget the rewarding promotional goodies.
.NET track was mainly focused on the new features in ASP MVC and C#. The main speakers were from Microsoft research. I am no that well versed with these technologies but still I enjoyed the sessions.
The Java track had a lot of talks discussing about Java 8 and JavaFx. Major upgrades in J2SE were also discussed. Major speakers were Venkat Subramqnium and Simon Ritter.
The Web track had sessions on HTML5, SQL Server2012, Google App Engine etc. Speakers were Googlers, Microsoft employees and well known techies like Scott Davis(my favorite speaker for the summit).
The workshops had training sessions from developers at blackberry, Microsoft and Venket himself.
This was my first visit to a developer conference and the experience was pretty satisfying.
