Good news for those of you who read this from half way around the world. Yahoo's Bangalore office is hosting an Open Hack Day on October 5th and 6th.

We were struck by lightning twice at Hack Day in London, and now we're back for more. We're pleased to announce that we plan to hold another open Hack Day in Bangalore on October 5th and 6th, 2007.
We'll be inviting 200 developers to attend the event, which will begin with hack-related presentations from some of the Web's most respected developers. We will then dive into 24 hours of hacking on a very nice collection of tools, APIs, and data, and end with awards from the sponsors plus bragging rights until the end of eternity or the next Hack Day, whichever comes first.

The site has all the details, of course. And, as I wrote on the YDN blog:

I happen to have an insider tell me that they're going to have good wireless and a 20Mb/sec link to the Intertubes!

If it's anything like the Open Hack Days in Sunnyvale and London, it should be a blast. Head over to and sign up.

Still working on making it to this thing. Stupid green card process has me trapped in the US waiting for the receipt for my Adjustment of Status (AOS) application. It's amazing that just getting acknowledgement that they have received the application takes months.

Jeremy I remember your talk on MySQL Optimization a few years ago in Linux Bangalore. It was as you expect very informative.
