Our First Meeting


After collaborating online number of times, We group members finally decided to meet in person with each other. Most of us are Software Engineers and every one was busy in day so we took a time around 8:45 PM in the evening.

The purpose of meeting was to give introduction to our group, our future plans (immediate and long terms) and decision for co-author of our blog . I myself personally speak up that why I wanted this group and those who come to attend meeting were really passionate about it.

Another main goal of meeting was to decide a permanent location and time of bi-monthly meetings. So I personally asked the most suitable time for every one and we finally decided to meet on odd Mondays of each month at FAST- National University Karachi City Campus, where Microsoft Innovation Center is also located, around 7:30 PM.

I also propagate my discussions with MVP Mr. Wajahat Abbas to other group members and so far what are our plans and ask for group members to give suggestions as well. Every body participated actively. We also discuss about our immediate plan of session on Microsoft Certifications which I’ll be delivering personally at DeXpert, KalSoft.

We intend to arrange Seminar at University of Karachi as our next major event. For that we will be discussing with M. Saqib (INETA Country Leader) and others. Further we are seeking volunteers from Department of Computer Science, University of Karachi to help us arrange the event.
