The October Meetup of Refresh Colombo will be happening this Thursday, 20th October 2011 at the Royal College Union Skills Centre. We have lined up a set of very interesting topics for this month as well. A lot has happened in the Tech industry since our last meetup and to sum it up all, we will have Bud and Chanux on board to pay tribute to Steve Jobs, one of the greatest visionaries of recent times. They hope to talk about some of the great ideas and insights Steve Jobs had and how some of those ideas have transformed our lives. Bud who needs no introduction, is probably the best person to share his valuable experiences with Steve Job’s inventions.
The day I decided to make a move towards an Android based device is so significant because the world was in tears for the loss of Steve Jobs. Though the events don’t co-relate, it took me a very long time to give up on my long lasting love towards Nokia / Symbian. I was disheartened to hear the news that Nokia would ship with Windows. Being a Nokia device fanatic, I expected that Nokia would ship with Android some day. When it was not the case, I had to make the move.
In just over a year, Refresh Colombo has gained popularity among the tech community in Colombo. As I keep saying it every time, the meetups keep getting better and better. The topics for this month’s meetup have been finalized and according to the FB event page, we will have 70+ attending the event. The plans have been made to shift to a bigger room to accommodate the crowd, so don’t miss out. It’s going to be an exciting meetup.. See you at Refresh Colombo July Meetup!
