A chance to listen to them was “The Goa Project”. Having heard a lot about it, I decided to be present this year “#TGP2015". So, truly this conference was ‘un-conference’ as they call on their website starting from organiser’s mood to, seriousness of schedule. Speakers screening came out as poor choice at some end but on the other end some rare people and their even rare ideas came in light as new opportunity and door openers.

I wish we had a little bit more of such but at the end it is at “Goa” so can’t complain much.
So , is there next time for us ?
