TechnoparkLive Poll Result KeralaIT.com 2008 was a failure.


Here is the result of one of the polls conducted here about the KeralaIT.com 2008.


out of 172 voters
92% of people said - Kerala IT.com 2008 was a Big failure.


Though the Event had much exposure in & out of Technopark - the participants for the event where only a handful, they've got only infosys and IBS from technopark. The event was not organized properly by the Officials & when they approached Microsoft - They Rejected it on the spot. No more information was given out about it & also many other companies too did the same at Kerala IT.com.


Hope that they learned a lesson(?) , and will arrange it well in next time...
