Gearing Up for FUDCon Pune 2011: Day -2

We're in the final stages now, and things are mostly in place:

  • Website: http://fudcon.in working fine
  • People have started arriving, cabs booked for all coming via Mumbai
    • A couple of them missed their flights, but they're on their way with a new schedule
  • Posters, booklet, banners printed
  • Budget is under control
  • Videographing set up (but will only be available for one room)
  • Hotel and Guest House rooms ready for speakers coming in
  • Lunch and FUDPub menus finalised
And we have an overwhelming response for the conference:
  • About 50 speakers
  • About 60 sessions (talks, demos, workshops, hackfests)
  • Almost 500 registered attendees
  • About 40 volunteers from COEP
Looks like this FUDCon is set to be the biggest in terms of attendance. We've had to propose a draft schedule to avoid confusion with such a huge crowd. The schedule's put up at  http://fudcon.in/program/fudcon_schedule.

What's left?
  • Adding power extension boards for classrooms and auditorium -- scheduled for tomorrow afternoon
  • Checking wifi access at venue.  We have rented a few routers to boost their signals if needed (we think they'll be needed)
  • Setting up banners around the campus -- tomorrow, after classes
Hmm, amidst all this, I have to find time to ready my slides and prepre for my talks. /me runs to get it done.
