Gurtam temporarily stops releasing meetups. How? Why? What for?
We do still have lots of topics and cool speakers. However, we need some time to get ready and start the new season even brighter, particularly as we meet at the award ceremonies throughout August. The start date of the new season is already known! Gurtam will go on air in early September. Now let’s get things straight.
Gurtam meetups are a whole new project, and we risked a lot when launching it. Would the audience like the new way of interacting, and would it replace such an important face-to-face communication at conferences? But no pain, no gain, right?
The COVID-19 pandemic ambushed the whole world, but we gave it our best shot and began our anti-crisis movement. We broke into the online space with existent but limited experience in hosting online events, but with a strong desire not to leave the community alone to fight the crisis.
Every week for almost six months, we have been providing you with meetups with our colleagues and invited experts. After the first meetup, we received positive feedback, and, putting aside any doubts, created our internal broadcast channel called Gurtam TV.
Through our community’s eyes, Gurtam meetups look like this:
You know, we felt the fear and did it anyway, and for us Gurtam meetups are:
We honestly told you about how it all began and how we came to the success of our risky project. For now, we kindly ask you to honestly tell us what you think about all this. We will prepare for the next season based on your suggestions and comments, so do not hesitate and share your opinion. As a result, we will see an objective view from the outside, and in the future, you will get improved content thanks to your opinion.
In between the Gurtam TV seasons, we will host three important events: awarding the winners in the Wialon TOP 50 Global and GPS Hardware Manufacturers TOP 10 ratings, as well as summing up the results of the IoT project of the year competition. Please find more details about the ceremonies in the article. And also submit your applications for participation in the competition by July 30. We are waiting for your project!
