Tomorrow night, Shwetank and I go by overnight train and then taxi to Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) in Pilani, the first stop on our Opera India University Tour where we’ll be showing such acronyms as SVG, CSS, HTML 5 and explaining the why of the technologies in an Indian context.
Looks like we’ve picked the right time to visit Pilani; wikipedia says
Pilani is known for its extreme climate. Summer temperatures reach up to 50 degree Celsius from May to July, while Winter temperatures reach sub-zero levels between December and January. Months of October and March are generally considered the most pleasant.
Some people have expressed surprise that I’m not going to South By Soutn West. I’ve never been before and I’d love to go, but I want to make a difference, so the chance to spread the Open Web Standards gospel to thousands of India’s brightest developers is unmissable.
