Microsoft 'TechMela 2007' in Mumbai RRS feed

  • Question

  • Come Wednesday, June 13th, Microsoft India will reportedly hold a four-day mega IT event dubbed "TechMela 2007" at the Renaissance in Mumbai.

    With a theme that reads, 'connecting experiences through technology' "TechMela 2007" promises coverage of technologies including mobile, embedded, next generation Web, user experience, security, infrastructure management, and unified communication.

    The event will be addressed by key speakers the likes of Sam Pitroda, Sunil Bharti Mittal, Ravi Venkatesan, and leading lights from AMD, Nortel, Rediff, and Accenture.

    Corporate head honchos and thought leaders will exchange perspective on whether or no IT drives the levers of change in business.

    The spotlight of course will be on Microsoft's Gen-Next Web offerings, including Expression Studio and Silverlight, as also the company's many initiatives towards convergence of mobile, PC, and Internet technology.

    Microsoft says it is for the first time that an event of such large scale will cater to multiple audiences; both developers/designers/IT professionals and technology/business decision makers.

    Sprucing up the show would be an exciting Sumo Robot contest with developers in a neck-n-neck race with real Sumo robots.

    Reportedly, TechMela is an evolution of the erstwhile TechEd, Mobile and Embedded Developers Conference (MEDC), IndiMIX and IT Professionals' conference.
