FISL 2009
wrapped up over the weekend. Even though the
conference officially ended on Saturday but the connections made there
will certainly allow us to continue all the great momentum. The
conference celebrates open source and it was certainly great to see
Federal Government and Banks with their booths in the exhibitor halls.
The visit by Brazilian President Lula certainly highlights the
importance of this conference to the local community. There were booths
from Debian, Firefox, Ubuntu and other major open source softwares.
Some commercial vendors had a booth as well and of course Sun
Microsystems had a big presence with GlassFish,
Open Solaris, href="http://netbeans.org">NetBeans, href="http://mysql.org">MySQL and href="http://sun.com/opensource">other offerings.

I delivered 3 talks and participated in 1 talk show:
  • Java
    EE 6 ( href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/resource/confs/javaee6-javali.pdf">slides)
    Features of GlassFish ( href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/resource/confs/glassfish-javali.pdf">slides)
  • Creating powerful web applications using
    GlassFish, MySQL and NetBeans/Eclipse href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/resource/confs/glassfish-fisl-2009.pdf">slides
  • Continuous Integration using Hudson ( href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/fisl_2009_day_3_in">slides)
  • Simon Phipps Talk Show

This blog featured 14 blogs, 10 videos, 275 pictures and 2 GlassFish
production stories href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/tags/fisl">over the

    [Trackback] Received a "certificate of attendance as speaker" for recently concluded FISL 10. This is sweet, thanks FISL organizers! It certainly adds a personal touch to the whole experience. I don't remember receiving a personal certificate like this :) Technor...
