I'll be buying the Lava's FF smartphone. It costs nothing, and I don't mind to give FFos a try. Sadly not many independant software developers are there in India, which itself is one of the largest IT hub.

I'm an Indian Software Developer myself and I know what you mean. Indian software companies run on the basic principle of low cost model. They can spend less on quality improvement programs.
Also because of service/support mentaility of our companies the project lengths are mostly quite short. IT people are asked to work in new fieds, without knowing anything and upon completion they are thrown to some other platform/field. Clients throw work they are unable to complete on us and expect early deadlines. I see both sides' fault here.
Don't underestimate the skill of Indian programmer to learn new things quicker and complete it. He just faces too many obstacles to write a 'Complete' code.

You sound to be someone who looks to derive pleasure from ridiculing. Developer? You develop what? Real developers wouldn't have enough spare time to be loitering around here and making stupid comment like above.

Why in Goa? Seriously. I live here and this evet would have been better placed at Bangalore. I'm an Electronics Engineer but my friend who is a comp engg is going. He wasn't expecting much though.
