Sun Tech Days 2008, Sao Paolo - Day 1
By arungupta on Sep 29, 2008
Sun Tech Days kick started yesterday in the beautiful city of Sao Paolo, Brazil. Over 1000 attendees, completely charged, willing to discuss their issues, amazing amount of energy and all there to learn about different Sun technologies - just a superb recipe to succeed and outpace everybody else in the world!
The GlassFish session was packed with 400 attendees and there were attendees all over the floor :) The slides are available here. The demos showed during the talk are listed as blog URLs in the slides.
Drop a comment if you attended the talk, are currently using GlassFish for development or production or would like to know more about it.
The winners of Open Source Community Awards (sponsored by Sun) were announced at the keynote. And I'm very excited to announce the two GlassFish Award Program (GAP) winners were present to receive in person. Congratulations to all the winners, very well deserved!
Reginaldo Russinholi won an award for "Translation of Hudson project to Brazilian Portuguese". More details can be found in the submission.
And Claudio Miranda won an award for "Provide CLI/GUI support to add/modify/remove certificates to JKS". More details can be found at in the submission and bug #4524.
And then all the winners together:

The evening concluded with a wonderful dinner at Praca Sao Lourenco (Vila Olimpia) with Bruno, Claudio and Mauricio:
It is a great restaurant with wilderness ambience, and as always, great hospitality. If you are in the city of Sao Paolo, this is another great place to go!
