Subject RE: Anyone interested in a one day event in Bangalore?

Hi Nick,

Let us know if the conference is still on. PESIT college which agreed to host the conference
is one of the prestigious colleges in Bangalore. Facilities also seems promising plus they
can arrange for a good internet bandwidth(cost need to be borne by the sponsors but they have
a team to setup it up etc). We need to finalize on the agenda, topics, speakers, on which
topics we want to have a Hack sessions plus sponsorship etc.

Hello Nick,

Today we had a discussion with Dr. Dinkar Sitaram, the Head of the Department Head, Center
for Cloud Computing and Big Data at PESIT. 

They confirmed that they can  host the event at their campus. The facility that they offered
for the event looks very promising.

Now,  waiting to hear from you about the following:

1. Agenda (Hadoop group have promised two talks from their end. CloudStack can plan one or
two.) 2. Sponsorship for the logistics 

Meanwhile, we will announce the venue in the Meetup page.

Looking forward to hear from you,

Thanks and Regards

Given that we're aiming to do something in only about 4 weeks time, and we ideally want to
announce the date + venue by Thursday, don't let perfect get in the way of good enough!

All being well, this'll be the first event of several. Being the first, and given the short
lead time, we won't have as many people as future events may come to have. So, we don't necessarily
need a huge space somewhere amazing, especially not if sorting that out will take too long.

You guys are the ones on the ground, who know Bangalore, know the venues, know the tech scene,
so you'll need to be the ones to decide. Ideally we want to announce before the end of ApacheCon,
so I suspect what we can arrange quickly and will host the kind of numbers we expect is going
to win out as the best option!
