It was / is my pleasure to receive an email and its invitation from Google for Think Mobile / Google's AdMob event at Vivanta by Taj Hotel, Tumkur Road, Yeshwantpur, Bengaluru, on 24th Sep 2014.

An opportunity from ISC to attend Google's ThinkMobile event

Before telling these, I would like to inform all ISCians and visitors' that this opportunity arrived at me just because of Tony John (Webmaster of this site, ISC is called in short for, beside I am a member of this reputed educational site and for a long. This is the second time that I have got an invitation from Google, though the second one which I am going to tell you about the event in detail is coming little later, before that, the first one invitation one year back from Google was nothing but it was an invitation to be present in Google's office at KR Puram Bangalore, just to have a chat, expert guiding on monetizing the web content, web presentation tips, ad size and its arrangement etc.

Here you go for the second one or latest event from Google which I recently attended along with as much as of 1000+ head counts altogether of Google's Publishers, Advertisers, Apps Developers and Google's India team (altogether called Developers, and user [consumer] is a different one). It was really a good day for India as one of the app developer (Nami) said in his speech indicating all who attended over there. Other than Bangalore head counts, other Indian states people were invited by Google and they were attended too. I emailed to Tony to inform about this event, he said me to attend for the same without fail.

Registration at Google's ThinkMobile and AdMob event

I safely reached venue from Bangalore south to Bangalore west (Yashwantpur, Vivanta Taj Hotel - with huge traffic on the way), at 10.00am, just registration was going on and my registration was already done by one of the emailed reps (upon email / SMS confirmation) to hand over Temp ID to me, and they also given me a Google's gift bag (which contains Google 's Android shaped Pen drive, AdMob T shirt, AdMob catalogue and detail).

The auditorium was full and it was looking like double the size of a big theater in the city or town and few of them even standing without seats for them. Google's Program just started and speech of Rajan Anandan, VP Google India was going on upon my entry and his speech was on the topic of The Mobile Landscape in India and its detail. The next one came by Monisha Varadan, International Product Partnerships, Google, to give enormous detail about the success between user and developer as to Grow with Google. The third one on the stage to speech was none other than Scott Sheffer, VP, Online Partnerships Group, Google - he spoke in detail about the Global App Ecosystem and its process.

Some words from Google's Head and Experts

Though there are many things to say but I am going to write some highlighted one on this, Google team shown some of the video clips and statistics presentation which let us think and understand that even a child who is lesser than a year old would like to go with advanced, touch-integrated screen rather than a newspaper (without touch) even though the paper may not be replaced anything at anytime. The next one is, creativity who wins the business game on the toughest market globally. They said that this is a kind of war between Developer vs User. How do you identify the user's demand and fulfill their requirement is another one. Don't 'give up' is the terms to say here for any creativity which already taken place, possible to modify or create a new, add features and bring with new shape, as long as users are satisfied from that.

Back to auditorium, there were so many topics going on around followed by, the best among few is, Sungly Mobile from China that has more customer international wise than local in China - they got success within couple of years on startup, Xiangdong Zhang said. After seeing the agenda, everyone expected the man to come on the stage who was none other than Nami Zarringhalam, Co-Founder "TrueCaller", he was really excited to be in India since this is his first visit to India that too via Google, he said.

Truecaller is one of the best apps that downloaded heavily everyday, India is number one as per their list for downloading Truecaller apps, this apps helps to become a free member, shows the callers' identity before taking calls, stop SPAM calls permanently and helps to block the unwanted calls instantly. Nami explained and entertained very well to all.
