TDC 2011 Trip Report
By arungupta on Jul 10, 2011
Keep reading for the conclusive blog entry on my Brazil trip. After FISL12, Java Noroeste, Brasilia, and Goiania the trip concluded with The Developers Conference 2011 (TDC) in Sao Paulo.
The TDC, as the name says, is a developer conference organized by Global Code, Brazil's largest trainer of Java developers and several other IT courses. They offer courses in Core Java, Web, Design Patterns, Java EE 6, Robotics, and several other topics and have offices all around Brazil. There were about 2000+ attendees over 5 days and spread across multiple tracks covering Java, Java EE, Web, Python, PHP, .NET, Ruby, Cloud, and several other topics.
I gave two talks and a NetBeans-driven hackathon. The slides for the presos are available below:
The first talk had about 200 attendees and the second one had approx 80 attendees. And the NetBeans-driven Java EE 6/GlassFish hackathon code can be downloaded here.
Yara Senger (one of the main organizers of the conference) was telling me that several attendees gave her extremely positive feedback about my talks, this is always good to know. She also told me that attendees from other tracks left their session to attend these talks. Here are couple of feedbacks from twitterverse #tdc2011:
#TDC2011 Palestra do @arungupta muito bom
@esdrasbb Indiano da Oracle = @arungupta? O cara é bom! #GlassfishGuy
I'm certainly looking forward to participate in TDC at other locations/times.
