JCertif 2011 - The State of Java under Oracle, GlassFish 3.1, and Stickers
By arungupta on Sep 03, 2011
|JCertif 2011 was kicked off this morning by Max Bonbhel - the fearless president of JUG-AFRICA, an umbrella JUG for the entire continent of Africa, and the founder of Congo JUG. There were about 200+ attendees in the room. With a single track, the speakers had attention of all the attendees. I gave a keynote on "The State of Java under Oracle" and a technical session on "GlassFish 3.1: Deploying your Java EE 6 Applications".|
The conference is well organized and the event staff is very knowledgeable and willing to help. Its amazing to know how Max knows each and every detail and going an extra mile to make the speakers and attendees feel welcome. The keynote was well received and the audience was extremely interactive after the presentation, which is the fun part anyway. And I experienced a similar level of interaction after the GlassFish session as well. I also shared brand new GlassFish stickers with the audience and it turned out to quite a hit (check the pictures below and in the album).
The slides from the keynote are available:
Here are some pictures from the trip so far:
