Check out the recap here!
About the TCO19 India Event
It’s been two years, but the TCO19 India Regional Event had finally returned to Jaipur! The event was held on June 2nd at the Hotel Marriott, Jaipur. Thank you to our TCO19 India Regionals Development Competition sponsor Elastic and Digital Ocean for supporting the event.
Hotel Marriott, Jaipur
The feeling of meeting new members, hugging old friends and pretending to be more famous than Adam was as strong as I experienced in a TCO. I was finally able to meet ngraphics, a member I’ve worked with for so long but never got the chance to shake hands with. I had the chance to meet VivekSati, a promising new designer who came in 2nd place in the on-site competition, nPixel and more new designers; Hari_Om_Pandey, an all-around student who can crack up machine learning models as well as design thoughtful UX (he advanced rounds in Jessie’s Design Month Dash Challenge – his first UI competition ever!) and Ritesh our support guru. I had the chance to hang out with hi4sandy again, Sharathkumar92, ssp555, and Starck181995. I also met many other passionate members and admins who dream of coming to a global TCO. Let me tell you something, you have already witnessed a global TCO in Jaipur!
Congratulations to our TCO19 India Regional event champions!
