We recently concluded the first Developer Day of our Kolkata Chapter on 1st June, 2013. This is a recap of the event. The event kicked off at the scheduled time at Microsoft office in Kolkata and we had only 5 attendees to start with. Out of 40 registrations, seeing only 5 was a bit heartbreaking. But within 30 minutes, we had a packed room and we were short of space. It seemed that if a few more candidates turned up, we might need to tell them to attend the event by standing.
