Ok guys..before I say anything, let me apologize for the lack of coverage of today’s event. You see, the thing is,, today was Developer Day at ArabNet 2011..and as a result, most of what was going on was wayyyyy over my head.. But I did sit in a few of the Starter Talks if only just to hear the speakers say “Django” and “Ruby RubyonRails” (they’re programming languages I think!) So, I’m making progress..slowly but surely!
Anyway, I will try my best to bring you some better coverage over the coming days, when I’m actually able to understand what is going on. But for now, I hope you are happy with a few photos from the event, and a few of my live tweets!
The Panel on Mobile Platforms was about the only thing that I could understand..so here are some of my tweets (as well as one other from a Product Development Session)..
And that’s about all of the pictures I took for Developer Day! Shameful, I know..but bear with me! I’m a copywriter! 😀
Before I left for the day, I managed to take a sneak peak into the Startup Demo and Sponsors Exhibition Area to get a sense of what ArabNet 2011 has in store for us tomorrow. I managed to capture this interesting piece of hardware from the Third World Magic booth..most of the others were still under construction..
For all of you developers out there (those who were at ArabNet and those who were following via Twitter/Live Streaming),,what did you think of Developer Day? What insights did you gather? Were you pleased with the panel of speakers and the topics discussed? What is the next big trend in mobile?
Looking forward to being schooled by your comments!
