First SunTech Days in Guangzhou

suntech


Sun Tech Days 2008 took place in Guangzhou on Nov 19.   This is the first time that Sun Tech days took place in this beautiful city.  This is a very successful conference with more than 1200 attendance which is above the target.  

Together with Jim  and Judy,  I presented GlassFish session.   The conference room is completely packed with over 700 people.   The audience was a little surprised when I introduce myself with Cantonese.   Besides meeting FishCats,  I also met lots of energetic  and devoted  university students who is really interested in GlassFish. 
My first visit to Guangzhou consists of   shuttle to hotel where conference is held,  stay there for a day  and then taxi to airport for departure to Sun Tech days in Beijing.  So I didn't really see Guangzhou.  But I know that my next visit will be fun in another way,  since  莹莹 and her schoolmates gladly offered to be my tourist guide next time i visit Guangzhou.   她 说:  "很乐意带你去找好吃的和好玩的".   谢 谢 你 啦 莹莹 :)

Good to see that full room -- obviously lot of interest in GlassFish there.

Having done that shuttle to meeting and then taxi to airport at night for the next meeting last week myself, I can completely empathize with your situation. Take care and get some rest when you can.

Wow 700 people (over half the attendees!), very impressive. The pictures are great, it looks like you're having a lot of fun (despite being rushed). I hope the rest of your trip is fun, successful, and safe as well.

Can someone tell me how I can find out if/when there is a Sun tech show in Hong Kong?
