GlassFish swimming to FISL, Brazil




FISL stands for "Forum Internacional Software Livre" in the Portuguese language and means "International Free Software Forum" in the English language. The punch line is "A technologia que liberta" and means "The technology that liberates".

This is the biggest event about free software in America and was attended by 7417 participants in 2008.

Just like "Freedom of Speech" is a basic human right, "Freedom of Software" is a basic right for the technology evolution. GlassFish gives you the freedom:
  • To Pick your own framework: Java EE, Ruby-on-Rails, Python/Django, Groovy/Grails, or any other
  • Choose your IDE: NetBeans, Eclipse, IntelliJ and others.
  • Over properietary Application Servers by providing highly reliable and production quality features like
    • Clustering/Load balancing
    • Secure, Reliable, and Transactional, and .NET-interoperable Web services stack (Metro)
    • Easy-to-use web-based administration console along with a powerful CLI
    in an open source world.
  • Offers dual open-source license (CDDL or GPL v2 w/ CPE)
Similarly NetBeans allows you to create Java, Ruby, Python, Groovy, PHP, C/C++, JavaScript, Java EE, Mobile, REST/SOAP, and a variety of applications. Eclipse also provides an open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools and runtimes for building, deploying and managing software across the lifecycle. MySQL is the world's most popular open source database.

Together, GlassFish, NetBeans/Eclipse, and MySQL liberates you from the vendor lock-in by offering you a compelling choice.

At FISL 10, learn how GlassFish, NetBeans/Eclipse, and MySQL provide a powerful feature-rich yet easy to use platform for developing/deploying your web applications. The complete details about the session are available here. I plan to show multiple demos during the talk that you may find useful in your regular work.

Arun,

Porto Alegre, the city from FISL doesn't have nice beaches and belive me, is very cold in this season.

But, if you like we can eat a very nice barbecue in a churrascaria. They make the best!

Regards and have a nice trip

Thanks Paulino!

I realize Brazil is in the southern hemisphere and so while we are enjoying late Spring here, it must be getting cold there. However I do hope to live some Brazilian culture there :)

Barbecue at a churrascaria sounds fun. Are you attending FISL ?

Hi Arun,

Yes, sure, you can live a lot of our culture there, including the traditional culture of the south, called "gaúcho" and their derivatives.

I'm attending there for many years and in this time I'm doing a lecture about How to create and sustain a free software company. Also, close friend of Jon maddog Hall and Ryan Ozimek from Joomla, including many many others.

We're meet in the next week.
Best
