My first tech meetup 💡🖥😎
Really had great experiences 😃 @ Inaugural Kochi Twitter Developer Community Meetup. (https://www.meetup.com/Kochi-Twitter-Developer-Community/).
Here are a few, in the order…
- Chance to visit Kerala Startup Mission, Kerala Technology Innovation Zone (KTIZ), Kalamasseri, near Kakkanad, Cochin. Really cool place to start a startup (and its cheap). (https://goo.gl/maps/NHS71qhX1Tz)
- Met some really good developers, from GDG (Google Developers Group Cochin), and some startup enthusiasts. Which really helps to develop a strong social network for your startup journey. (https://developers.google.com/groups/chapter/106046004645175854179/)
- Then it came out, the meetup, and the schedule goes like…
10:00 am - Introduction
Shahul Hameed (@beingshahul) - Dev Group Lead, Kochi

10.15 am - Intro to Fabric platform (Crashlytics, Digits & Answers)

The talk isn’t too techy or geeky 📟💻📈📊📶 for an ordinary guy. So I do suggest you all for the same, coz you don’t know what YOU are missing unless you attend this kind of meetups.
10.40 am - How we built ReFly
Melson Zacharias (@mjzacharias) - CTO, Refly
On how he & his team engineered a product from prototype and the key learnings behind.
11 am - 11. 20am - Open Mic 🙋
Open mic section was great with some random topics of our choice, like AI,…
11.20 am - Treats and drinks will be served. (Domino's pizza)
Mmm…. 😋 & [FREE]
- Then we all met each other. (That’s what I call NETWORKING 👬👥 📱↔📱)
And you won’t know how soon they’ll turn out helpful. Seriously, coz one of them dropped me 🚣 at Aluva railway station.
Even on my journey to and fro, I had wonderful conversations with my friends. So literally, not even a sec was felt wasted throughout. (And thanks to TCR Railway station for free & fast WiFi 📲⚡)
