GlassFish @ FOSS.IN 2007

I'll be attending FOSS.IN, Dec 4-8 in Silicon Valley of India (more popularly known as Bangalore). This is going to be my first formal conference in India so I am excited! Find me and talk anything about GlassFish.

Sun Microsystems has held open systems to be the cornerstone of its business philosophy since the beginning. Today, through shared technology innovation, Sun's continued commitment to Open Source is reflected in its leadership and key contributions to the many projects including GlassFish, OpenSolaris, OpenOffice.org, GNOME, Grid Engine, java.net, NetBeans, and Mozilla. And here as well, Sun is a Principal Sponsor of the event.

Here are some important links:

  • When ? Dec 4-8, 2007
  • Where ? National Science Symposium Center, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
  • Schedule - At this this this is a list of all the events happening with NO date/time/location assigned to them. It seems slightly late knowing that the conference is less than 3 weeks ago. And of course there is no individualized page where I can pick/choose the sessions of my interest.
  • Register here - The registration process is slightly confusing by introducing different kinds of delegates and the way payment is made. It is primitive too because you register on the Web and then pay at the event (no Credit Card payments). The rules are stern, for example no reissuing of conference badge.
  • Know more - Join the Mailing List. The traffic is becoming high as the date is approaching.
  • Live stats of registered attendees is a good. More than 1000 delegates have registered so far with a significant chunk from outside Bangalore (like me :).
  • FOSS.IN is still Looking for Volunteers, help them out!

BTW, out of curiosity, could you easily give your lectures in Hindi if asked to do so, or would you find yourself continually switching to English if you tried?

Gosh, it would be hard to give the entire lecture in Hindi :) But I can certainly explain the concepts and talk to people in Hindi, that's my mother tongue pal :) Moreover, almost all (if not all) Hindi speaking software engineers would understand English pretty well, so I don't see a need of giving a talk in Hindi.

Hi Arun, I was glad to see your presentations on GlassFish, JRuby and Metro @ CGI in Montreal. Netbeans is fantastic too.

Hi Arun,

I'd like to get in touch with you by email for an input for an IT article on open source I'm working on.

Could you please send me a mail at your earliest convenience so that I can revert with details.

Best,

Charu
