Bangalore IT Biz 2012 - Day 2 - Networking

Yay! The 2nd day, we have the banner firmly stuck up on the stall panels. Now its time to attract more visitors and do some more networking. We met a lot of people from a lot of companies, especially start-ups providing specialized services.

We hunted for customers, partners and service providers. While looking for service providers our focus was to select a company whose services could be consumed easily. We found more service providers than customers. We are looking for partners from healthcare and data processing domains.

This event, though, enabled us to create more visibility about our services. There were a lot of people who reacted as Ah! You're based out of Udaipur! Some even argued about us being located in a tier-III city and missing on a lot of exposure and opportunities.

Perhaps we are! But with the kind of our customers and reach we have, we also have some other exposure and opportunities which others do not have. Judging someone from where he or she comes from is not the right way to assess someone.

Well, overall the day ended peacefully. Now we were looking for some other opportunities on the last day of the event!

Assembla hit by a virus?

Today hosted task management site Assembla was hit by some virus. Around 3 hours back we got Service Unavailable - DNS failure error when trying to access the portal.
Trying to call any API from Assembla returns with the following unwanted HTML code prepended to the response:
<html><head><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL="></head><body><a href="">Please click here</a></body></html>
We have logged a ticket with them. The response was quick but when we tried to post a reply comment we consistently got error - Your CAPTCHA words didn't match We'll keep on chasing them for updates and hope safety for Assembla users.

Copy-paste was never easier, thanks to modern technology. Ideas and innovations now spread even faster. When a product is launched in the market, within a few days, we have other vendors with a similar offering. The case is more severe with mobiles and tablets.
