Hello Fellow DTNers,

We are starting the new year with a bang!. 2013 should be a great year for DTN, plus this event will mark our 3rd year anniversary :)

We have a great lineup of speakers for this event, and as usual, an exciting and relevant topic to talk about.

Our first speaker, Fadi Yousuf, is the founder and managing director of Axeldata Systems, Fadi will educate us on the world of Big Data, a field that is gaining massive traction due to the popularity of Social networking.

Our second speaker, Muhammed Mekki, Co-Founder of Namshi.com who will share with us his exciting journey with Namshi and all the ups and down of his entrepreneurial venture.

Please make sure RSVP for the event and come on time, and please share this meetup with your techie friends.

See you all on Jan 8th,

The DTN Organizing Team.

    Very good event, but:1) Please pass a mic to attendees; you couldn't hear what some were asking (or speaker simply repeats the Q before answering). 2) Give some more time for Q&A 3) why went water for coffee out?!

    We have now 174 RSVPed, and the venue might get really crowded.. so early show ups would be helpful in finding a seat :)

    Thanks guys for your comments.

    Having more than 1300 members will always mean that some members won't be able to make it for many different reasons. 110 RSVP'd for the gathering by now, which is more than the capacity of the venue already & speakers are set for the date :) We are looking into ways to record the gathering & post it later on YouTube, hopefully this would help once its setup. Many Thanks,
    Murshed

    Oh, like Moiz suggested, is there a possibility of date change to a day like Friday where most techies are on holiday and free, because a good number of techies including me sometimes have night shifts, of which a date and time for this event may not be in their favor. I suggest Friday 11th. This will even give the organizers more time to prepare, and speakers more time to give detail on what they're gonna speak about. I request any of the co-organizers to please respond accordingly to my suggestion. Thank you.
