These are just some awesome names that little of us in the IT industry aspire to be. They are great names. With them comes a responsibility that is huge and heavy. I admit, I am no where near these titles. Can I be a hardcore programmer? Do I have the passion? I am still asking myself these questions. But these speakers inspire and motivate me. The Great Indian Developer Awards 2008 is a first-of-its-kind ceremony that honors winners across a range of categories in the IT Developer ecosystem. The awards throw the spotlight on trailblazing individuals, technologies, and organizations that are contributing to the evangelism, productivity and innovation excellence of the Indian developer ecosystem. Let us pray and work towards the glory alike these individuals. With much effort and enthusiasm, I believe that Malaysians can one day achieve as so. Gambate!
