It was my bad luck that I was not able to attend the first session of Dr. Nitin Paranjpe from startinfg; but whatever part I attend of that session was very exciting. He told about keeping the focus on the end-user of the application you build. You can sell something worth 30$ for 3000+$ for this he gave good example of Stopwatch.

The session on the Visual Studio 2005 Team System was great. The Visual studio 2005 Team system is something very exciting and this is the session I like the most session among all session . Mr. Raj Chaudhari explain in a really very good manner about this coming Visual Studio 2005 system.

Student Track : Day 2

Mobile application session with Sanjay was really great . I attend the Sanjay's session after such long time of around 7-8 month.The strating part of Akila's session was helpfull for me. but when she go in to deep of C#and Java then that was somewhat hammering for me since I don't have much idea of Java and C#. but It helped me understand C# . Anyways I know that Akila's session are always good.I couldn't attend the session of Nuazad. Nuazad sorry for that.Couldn't attend all the sessions as I was also volunteering .working with MUG volunteers was good experience. I got some new friend. I can take the name of Dhaval as my new good friend at DevCon from all of them

.We also planning to have this DevCon Event at Pune in September and at other cities like banglore, Delhi etc...
