XConf is Thoughtworks annual technology event created by technologists. It is designed for technologists who care deeply about software and its impact on the world.
Last year XConf was virtual but this year, we are resuming to a physical one, so come meet us face to face in Bangalore at ITC Gardenia on Friday, July 29.
I am exited to share the stage with renowned technologists like Supriyo Ghosh, Chief Architect, Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC) India, our Head of Technology
Bharani Subramaniam and Vanya Seth along with other techies from three streams Emerging Tech, Digital Transformation and Data.
I will be speaking with Raju Kandaswamy on “AI Assisted Content Pipeline for XR”

Event Wrap and Key Takeaway
It was amazing to join such an event face to face after so long, there was a lot of excitement in participants as well as organizers.
Stage was set so well and was a full house. #XConfIndia was trending on social media.
The ONDC, the next disruption in digital commerce
I loved the keynotes by Supriyo Ghosh, who talked about Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC), it’s architecture, and how decentralized architecture will come into play.
I have always been talking in the metaverse adoption challenges, that there will be tussle between centralized and de-centralized architecture,
as community based eco-system would like it in de-centralized fashion, but central authority, governments always wanted to control centrally. It changed my thinking after looking at the ONDC architecture, and how government is adopting it safely.
Very well covered by Bharani Subramaniam and Vanya Seth. Key trends they spoke are scripting the kernel (ePFB, taking ownership of rising cloud costs. Preserving data privacy while linking databases (record linkage), Authorisation as service still a need (eg SpiceDB) that has been inspired from Google’s Zanzibar, pretotyping over prototype and cleaning the software supply chain systems, building protocols that can build platforms, sustainability and more.
Overall focus was on data and AI. there were 3 tracks, one was focused data and DataMesh based practices, and one was focused on digital transformation where we talked about development practices such as security at scale, clean code, service meshing etc. and we had a dedicated track for emerging tech.
At emerging tech track we talked about how AI can help in XR/Metaverse content generation, and Drug discovery, and how to measure carbon intensity of the software we are producing.
