On Oct 17th, google hosted a seminar on Social Web and Opensocial api's. The Le' Meridian environment and quality of seminar was satisfactory. The Seminar was invite only.
It started with introductory note on social web and need of opensocial by Rajdeep Dua. The comes the next seminar much awaited "differences between 0.7 and 0.8 apis" by Anash Oommen. A very decent presentation by Anash.
With a small tea break a presentation on "shindig Architecture" by Rajdeep Dua who tried to make it a very complex topic as much as he can. This followed by a more complex presentation on "OpenSocial Compliance" ( God knows whether topic was complex or presentation :) ).
Then comes the lunch session but which was quite decent :). Immediately after lunch session Code Lab started ( I hate after lunch classes :( ) and team tried it best to make as complex as it can. It was a fail for me as my shindig php version was too adamant to run at all. I will dig it more as already got few interesting ideas in my mind.
In the end there were two presentation by google partners ( partners ? ). First one was by Impetus Technologies and was fair enough. Second one was by Satyam and the performance and content was dangerously below average. It was interesting experience for me ( for most of the others it was just another networking opportunity :) ). But overall I will wait for next google event.
