Later this month I'll be headed back to Bangalore to speak at India's largest Open Source conference, The conference has changed names a few times in its history. When I was there two years ago it was called Linux/Bangalore and I had a great time.

Bangalore is a quickly evolving city in one of the world's most important countries. I can't wait to see how much things have changed in the 24 months since I was there. But more than anything, I can't wait to enjoy some real Indian food.

Looking at the list of international speakers, I'm honored to be on it. Can you believe they got Alan Cox? Kick ass!

I wonder whether you will end up doing more of this?


We look forward to having you here. And not letting you go till the final day is over (B R O A D hint - call ticketing *now*!). If you thought that the finale in 2003 rocked, wait till you see what happens this year. ;)

The band at the closing ceremony last time was indeed cool, but my travel schedule has been nasty lately and having a weekend with my wife and son occasionally is also pretty cool.

There is a really good resturant on MG Road (I think) called the Tandoor. I was told it was a local favorite. Give it a try if you have a chance. I can send you the address.

I'll be interested to know what you think about Bangalore and how it's changed in 2 years.

Welcome to India and Bangalore.

I started by software career there @ Infosys. Bangalore is always fond in my memory for her weather and Paper-Masala-Dosas. Try it, I think you will enjoy it.
I liked dosas so much that I thrived 1.5 years almost solely on them.

Re: Atul's comment, Jeremy, remember to bring the purple Sharpie for exactly that reason!

Bangalore is a city not a country?
