Got to Lahore at about 9 pm, with all other delegates. Vaqas from BBCL (Big Bang Communication) rented a Honda Civic from Avis and we drove to LUMS and checked in at the Rausing Executive Development Center. It was a nice enough place. I had to go out and buy converters for the charger plugs for our laptops.
The next day, we finalized the demos and presentations, went out, got the photo film developed, got a new one in the camera. Adnan Farooq got a shave and I got a trim. We had a Coke as well. ;-P
On returning, we ironed out clothes, took a shower, got ready and went to the presentation hall. Nasser Khan Ghazi was touching on XML Web Services when we got there. We then had lunch and tested our laptops with the equipment. I got Visual Studio and the presentation fired up ready to go. Oh, by the way, did I mention we were wearing our brand new INETA Pakistan logo shirts. They looked amazing.
The attendance was thin at Lahore as at Karachi, but the audience seemed much more knowledgable and asked very good questions. The audience was very eager about INETA Pakistan coming to Lahore. We informed them about the FAST Lahore User Group and asked them to drop us an email to discuss what can be done.
We gave away 7 Webcasts CDs.
I gave Adnan Farooq a hand by holding a microphone up to his laptop speakers so that the audience could hear the playback of the prompts and responses of his speech enabled FlightEnquiry.NET application.
Between our presentations, Nasser Khan Ghazi talked about Bioinformatics. I was very interested. After ISV community days, what's next?
