Day 1 - Tech Days 2010, Hyderabad

Ravichandra Kulur and band kick started the Tech Days, Hyderabad 2010 with flute, guitar, keyboard and drums playing Carnatic music. Ravi, a bachelor in Electrical Engineering, while nurturing his classical flute playing skills decided to take up music professionally from 1999.


He has extensively toured over 26 countries and performed over 1000 concerts like WOMAD in UK, Sfinks in Belgium, and San Fransciso Jazz Festival to name a few. The band certainly delighted the approx 3000 crowd with a breathtaking symphony. Enjoy 2 part video of the performance:

Accompanying him are Alwyn Fernandez (Guitarist), Prakash KN (Base Guitarist), Yogendra Hule (Drums), and Solomon (Keyboard).

Krishna Dhawan, Managing Director, Oracle India talked about the re-enforced commitment to Java.

James Gosling gave an overview of the Java ecosystem talking about different profiles / editions at a higher level. I certainly loved his Java EE 6 simplicity and ease-of-use demo with NetBeans 6.8 and GlassFish v3. His message to college graduates was "Learn Once, Work Anywhere" for the Java language. Another key message from him to the entire audience was "You have permission to have fun" ... so much like him :-) It was certainly good catching up with him before the keynote.

The Java EE 6 / GlassFish v3 presentation had about 800 attendees and showed the key messages of Flexibility, Light weight, and Extensibility of Java EE 6 and Modular, Embeddable, and Extensible GlassFish v3. The slides are now available:

OSGi and Java EE in GlassFish provided an introduction to OSGi, how OSGi bundles can be easily created using Maven (TOTD #36) and NetBeans (blog coming soon), different ways to manage OSGi bundles in GlassFish (TOTD #118), explained the concept hybrid applications, and showed a demo of OSGi Declarative Services in GlassFish (TOTD #125). The slides are available at:

The evening started with a nice debut performance by an upcoming Tollywood band, enjoy part of the musical extravaganza:

And concluded with a sumptuous dinner at Paradise Persis.

Hi Arun ,

This is the first time I attended Tech Days. I attended all your presentations. I was impressed by your presentation on glass fish and its features. The way you create interest in the audience is very good. I got a T-Shirt thrown by you for the question on glass fish. Thank you :-)

And thanks for sharing the presentations and photos of these two memorable days.
