The first session of the day involved us getting turbaned up, there was a horse and +Darshan Pandya did not fall off (I'm so proud). There was more force feeding and burning cow dung (to purify everything) and +Krazy Kat TV hung out with his new friends... I managed to keep my turban until the cab, outdoing most of my hosts (whoohooo!)

The rest of yesterday's festivities. More dancing, a lot of force feeding, a beautiful and very colorful venue. Live performances by +Darshan Pandya 's family members.. In the end +Krazy Kat TV "I'm not tired" was killed in the cab :-)

Today +Krazy Kat TV and I got to smell burning cow dung used for "purification", got our foreheads painted, Ephram's henna darkened over night, we visited a park where all the 80s playground equipment that I grew up with but has since been banned still exists, attempted to play cricket with some neighborhood children (I don't know what the score was but I'm pretty sure I lost) and ate until we were stuffed. Just another day in +Darshan Pandya 's Big Fat Indian Wedding...

(and there is another ceremony to come)

Story
Tagline
President of Open Software Integrators, LLC
Introduction
Founder and President of Open Software Integrators, LLC (http://osintegrators.com).  Open Software Integrators specializes in Open Source solutions (consulting, training, application development).  We have offices in both Durham, NC and Chicago, IL. We do training, consulting and application development.  We specialize in mobile, open source and cloud-based technologies especially but not exclusively including: Java, Ruby, Linux, Android, iOS (iPhone, iPad), Titanium (for cross-platform),  Hadoop, MongoDB, Couchbase and Neo4j.   A lot of our work comes through our partners such as VMWare (http://vmware.com) and Neo Technologies http://www.neotechnology.com as well as our sister company ShadowSoft (http://shadow-soft.com).

I'm write a weekly column on application development topics for InfoWorld (http://www.infoworld.com/author-bios/andrew-oliver) and am always looking for new ideas to write about.

I formally served on the board of the Open Source Initiative (http://opensource.org) and I still help out as a member.  

As a developer turned manager, I'm a Java and Linux kind of guy.  I don't like problems that I can't solve (i.e. because some vendor won't cough up the code).  A core interest of mine is in bringing new and emerging technologies into our practice and building on specialties within our organization.

I'm a dad with 3 kids, a wife, and a red 2009 Ninja 650!  I'm a foodie who lives in the "foodiest small town" in North America.  I'm a geek who has watched Battlestar Galactica more times than you have.

first they took my reservation despite not having cars. I sat on hold for an hour with corp office while the guys at the desk made fun of other customers. 'luckily' someone brought a car back and they gave it to me. It was dirty but I didn't care I was late and just wanted to go. We did the ceremonial walk around but the garage was so dimly lit that I couldn't see much. I pretty much drove between two hotels Baltimore to Greenbelt. Now (after cleaning the area and with a flash) they claim I damaged the car under the drivers side door. It is just a scratch and no way I would have seen it. Worst experience ever. I'm platinum and this is the service I got? After a week of phone tag with the manager I've switched to Hertz.

Had a great experience here. Stopped in for a late night drink and Meredith was super friendly and helpful. The service is great, the people are nice and I'd definitely recommend it!

The beers are great and even the more unique beers could be session beers. I.e. Some places you try their more artistic brews and are like "good but I couldn't possibly drink more than one of those." The people are nice, the environment is laid back, and it isn't super hot. I found the beers incredibly superior to Societe down the street and that you can sit at the bar and get bar service (rather than having to wait in line between brews) is a big deal.

Jimbo's is amazing. This is the place you go for organic produce. The packaged stuff is a bit pricey and can be had elsewhere, but the produce is generally the best around. The produce is cheaper than average than Whole Foods. While it is more expensive than Sprouts, they have more of a selection if you're going organic (or as I like to call it: avoiding cancer).

Mediocre beer for a brewery of its type. Even at the bar you have to get up and wait in line for each beer. Impressive looking brewing operation. Music is god awful...they played the Bee Gees for zod's sake!

This place had a really weak opening and just before Mateo's opened. The service vastly improved and the food is top notch. Meanwhile Mateo's let things slide. Give this place another try.
