Day 2 - Tech Days 2010, Hyderabad

Follow up from Day 1.

The opening of Day 2 started with "awesome", "fantastic", and "extraordinary" as the feedback when Simon asked about the Day 1. The attendees charged into the Hyderabad International Convention Center, the venue of Tech Days, on Day 2 as evident in the video below:

Georges Saab, Vice President, Fusion Middleware, Oracle talked about Oracle Application Grid and its various components such as WebLogic, Tuxedo, JRockit, Coherence, JDeveloper, ADF, and EclipseLink. Nandini Ramani showcased how Java platform has evolved over past few years and modularity is one of the key themes going forward. Her talk was loaded with several demos including mine on JSF, CDI, Bean Validation, and JAX-RS using NetBeans.

The "strange and unusual talent show", a usual activity on Day 2, had 9 participants and its probably the largest group I've ever seen. The attendees are encouraged to show their talent and it ranged from a poem, martial arts, dancing, singing, and many others. Watch all the fun in the video below:

My session on "Using the latest Java Persistence API 2 Features" was well received in a packed hall (with a capacity of 1500) and the slides are now available:
