This is the summary of external technical talks I have delivered by collaborating with Microsoft India Developer & Platform Evangelism (DPE) teams. Delivering external talk is not the part of my core job. These talks were mostly delivered by invitation. I also like to connect to professionals and students who are passionate about technology. If you are interested to know more about any of these talks, feel free to contact me via this blog post or email.
