Typically, it was about a week’s planning before I got to attend the IndicThreads conference. I didn’t know that the conference was taking place on Friday until I got an invite by Harshad Oak through LinkedIn. I took permission from my authorities at my work place, took Friday off and was looking forward to this 2-day conference in the city of Pune, India.
I had attended (TSSS 2003, USA), presented at (FIE 97, USA), and written about (NFJS 2005, USA) conferences in the USA — but had never attended one in India, specifically in Pune. Honestly, I was eager to.
