    What's Going On In Barcamp Pune-5

    For some reason if you were not able to make it to BCP-5(Barcamp Pune) then I have to say that you are missing a lot guys.Because I was late by 1hour and I missed one of the best topic Wifi hacking and Security. Its going on great out here, cool topics, interactive people and the best thing is its great learning.


    This session was good, as it was all about learning from Internet. How you can get the latest updated's, learning from anywhere, have a web or video conference for interactive session if someone cant come over and explain it. Most of you would agree with me, that lot of us have started using Internet so commonly that we just Google anything for which you need information and we get it right way. And the best part is that all this learning is free of cost(except Internet chargesWinking)


    e-learning session by Bhavya and Pramita.


    If you love blogger clubs, open source technology, Java coding then this is the place for you TechStart. This was an interactive session as all were debating about was schooling necessary for work we do in software industries? As all the skill set needed in software field is learnt after school or college. And we end up learning these technology by ourselves by book or through net. Every one had there own point of view.


    Techstart.in session by Freeman.

    Google Analytics:

    Most of the Google products I love, Analytics is one of the my best product. This session was all about how Google analytics works. It gives all the details about the visitors who visited your website or blog. This gives all the good and bad things about your blogs and website. Good things is to keep the good work on and Bad things which points out where you have to improve.


    Google Analytics session by Rohan Dighe.

    Pune Wiki:

    Now this session was not attended by many, as it was all about government and more about PMC. In beginning I was also thinking that "why am I sitting here", but after listing to Ranjit (in orange T-shirt) I was just lost in his speech. This session educated us how to make give suggestions to pune government for making roads, transport and other things to be in proper manner. Its not just about complaining to them as we always do. We have to help them understand by giving them exact places where the problem is and put your suggestions or tips that how we can improve it. This is the were you can put all the suggestions Pune Wikia. And lets make Pune Cleaner and Greener.


    Pune Wiki session by Ranjit Gadgil.

    Security Assertion Markup Language(SAML):

    It was all about how most of the enterprise web applications uses the SAML in there application. This is been used because till now SAML is the secure way to get login to one site and then go to its order products with the same id and password, as it uses XML to transfer the data and most of us know that XML is the easy and more commonly used everywhere. But the trick is that it dose not passes the password or user-id in the XML file when you go from first product to other products.


    SAML session by Somojit. 

    These were the sessions which I was able to attend. My experience at Barcamp was fantastic. I wish to attend the next Barcamp in future.

    New Region For Google Ads In Orkut

    Last time I logged in my orkut account, I did noticed the change in Advertisement region in my profile home page. As you can see it has been set over the my communities now.


    I remember before this the Advertisement shown on orkut was below my communities. But as Ads were not displayed properly or not in the frame when you login ( we had to scroll down to see the ads, like now I have to do the same thing for my communities ) must be the reason it has been moved up.

    Note: This change in ads region is seen in my account but few of my friends has the same ads region as before.
