W3C has embarked on an HTML5 Tour in India and it is a huge success. The W3C India team, under the leadership of Swaran Lata, has put together a five city tour that launched 17 Sept 2013 in New Delhi, India. In putting the tour together, the Office worked with Mike Smith, HTML Activity Lead, to come up with an interesting set of topics. In the first three cities we’ve had capacity crowds and great participation from the attendees.
Executing this tour has taken a team from the W3C India Office (which is resident in TDIL within DietY) and our event host organizations which are CDAC Noida, CDAC Bangalore, IIIT Hyderabad, CDAC Kolkata and CDAC Pune. Also it takes money and we’ve had a super group of both W3C Member and non-Member companies step forward to sponsor this tour. They include Samsung, NKN, NIXI, STPI, RICOH, NIIT Technologies, Exilant Technologies, Microsoft, Yahoo, Jadavpur Univ, Apt Software Avenues Pvt Ltd., Comprehensive Consultancy Pvt. Ltd, EdifiXio India Private Limited and Ricoh.
We’re also getting good press visibility from the local India tech press. The last two stops are on 23 September in Kolkata and 25 September in Pune. If you have anyone in your organization in either of these cities then contact Priyanka Malik, W3C India Business Development Leader, at firstname.lastname@example.org to get registered.
Stay tuned for updates, a more detailed blog will be coming out once the tour is over.
