IASA Launch of Chennai Chapter

10th January was an interesting day for IT Architects(includes both categories aspiring and folks who have already attained that designation) in Chennai. It was the launch of IASA - (Internation Association of Software Architects) chennai chapter. The event was sponsored by Microsoft and was held at Taj connemara. Around 400 associates attended the event and it had interesting sessions by Paul Priess (president of IASA) and Vivek Bhatnagar (Microsoft India). From what I can gather from the meeting was IASA is focussing on
  • Developing more IT architects in India
  • Providing guidance for existing architects to go to the next level
  • Creating a good networking forum which will bring all IT architects working in different companies

To summarize, it was nice to meet fellow architects working in other companies and gather some good ideas. Looking forward to have more such sessions in future.
