Myself @vishalmukadam

I was just checking posts on Steemit and randomly found the post by @Firepower that "India Steemit Accelerator Program is happening in and on 30 July 2017".
I seen this post and did RSVP .

I am from Mumbai and "Steemit" is what interests me, so I quickly RSVP'ed for the event because wanted to know the basics, in and outs of the Steemit platform as being a member since June and haven't done much yet.

I was already excited to go to Banglore just wanted the confirmation of the seat, in July of 28th I received an email that I've been confirmed as an attendee.

On 29 of July morning, got my train Udyan Express from Mumbai to Banglore City was travelling alone when I reached Banglore station on 30th of July which was event day. I was wondering which stop to get down finding which is the nearest station to the venue on Google Maps so, got down at KSR Bangalore, this was my first time in Banglore. One of my friend Kiran took me to the venue told already that I am coming to his city.

We took Metro from Kempegowda Majestic Metro station to Jayanagar from there we did breakfast and then dropped me by his bike to the venue Robert Bosch Indian HQ.

I met Kiran through online business six years ago so was meeting him after 6 years.

I reached the venue, there I met Steemitians, we first had a round of intro...
everyone was like my name is ..... I do this and my Steemit username is /@ steemit username

Speaker @firepower taught what is Crypto Currencies, The Blockchain and Steemit with the help of videos.
And then walked us through from the basics creation of a Steemit account, when to post what to post from A to Zee basics of Steemit platform.
And How to withdraw your earnings from Steem or SteemDollars to Indian rupees
also shared some of the strategies, links.

After the session, we had a break for snacks party and networking sponsored by Steemit India and organizers itself.
We ended up with Q& A session at the end followed by a group photo and selfie with the Speakers and organizers.

Selifie with @Firepower, also heard his first podcast on @lpfaust show. So thanks @lpfaust hosting a podcast.

I'm very happy to see that you made it to the accelerator @firepower is running and I'm glad to hear you took some time to listen to my interview with him as well. I'm looking forward to seeing you and everyone else from the accelerator become active, regular contributors to the Steemit platform.

I think once my children get a bit older I may have to visit India in the future.

·

Would be awesome if you travelled here some day! :D

·

Sounds great @lpfaust, we'll meet someday somewhere. I am trying to be more active on the platform after accelerator program it opend my eyes. I don't have steam power much but definitely i'll be getting once I make few more awesome posts.
I would definitely love to visit Denver Colorado in future.

One day i will join you guys :)

·

Yes, bro :)
Can't wait to meet you.
Keep making awesome posts you'll definitely make it.

WOW! You went all the way from Mumbai to Bangalore for that! Going through your narrative tells me that it was some preliminary intro to Steemit. But I guess, it must be too valuable to attend such fests for the sake of networking itself. And it wasn't too far for you if I compare with the Steemians who are traveling to Lisbon Steemfest from the far end of the globe. Without attending one, it will always remain a mystery to me 😊. Thanks for this update, bro!

Looks like you had a great time! Thanks for making it to the event dude! :) Just a small correction, it's India Steemit Accelerator. :)

·

Updated bro! Thanks for having me :)

Hey it was great having people from other places joining in for the accelerator, I'm sure @firepower would agree :) Followed you, hoping to see more of your posts :)

·

Thanks @rjsudeep.
Yes, I am trying to publish postings regularly.

Lol... you should credit @rjsudeep and @sanjayjkamath. I did not do anything 😂

·

Updated thanks :)
