Working together, campus ambassadors Kashing Chan and Max Li gave a technical demo at the City University of Hong Kong. Gigi Li and Max Li presented the material a few days later at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The teams' slide presentation (104 pages, PDF) -- with material about Sun, the Sun Academic Initiative (SAI), and NetBeans and Java technologies -- is available on the NetBeans educational site under "Plan Your Lessons."
Ezequiel Singer of Buenos Aires, Argentina, recently announced the publication of a video from the 2007 Latin America universities tour, during which five Sun specialists from the United States, Spain, Brazil, and Argentina traveled through Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Chile to give talks and demos. Another video that features some difficult moments on that tour is now available on NetBeansTV: "It seems that not everything worked as it was planned," wrote Ezequiel, "but it was fun!"
