FISL 2010 Trip Report

4998 attendees registered and participated at the 11th edition of FISL - the biggest open source conference in Brazil. This was my second year at FISL. Even though the attendance was slightly down from last year but there was no let down in the energy. With 13 parallel tracks and sessions running from 9am to 11pm, it can be absolutely overwhelming. However most of the sessions were in Portuguese (with no English translation) so I could not attend.

I presented on the Java EE 6 Toolshow to an audience of approx 200. This slides-free session showed how NetBeans 6.9 provides comprehensive tooling around Java EE 6 and GlassFish 3. The session showed:

  • Simplicity and ease-of-use for creating Java EE 6 web applications
  • Boost productivity using Deploy-on-Save and Session-preservation across multiple redeployments
  • JSP, Servlets 3.0, EJB 3.1 in Java EE 6 web apps
  • Database access using Java Persistence API 2.0
  • Using Facelets with Java Server Faces 2.0
  • Contexts & Dependency Injection 1.0 with JSF 2
  • RESTful Web services using JAX-RS

The screencast #30 made the session delivery quite a breeze and you can watch the entire session by watching the multi-part screencasts.

Meeting Bruno Souza and Fabiane Nardon was a good highlight of the trip. They are both fairly well known in the Brazilian community and we shared stories from last year's presence of Sun Microsystems at FISL. Check out their latest adventure at where they provide open source tools-based development environment in the cloud.

Personally, I stayed for only couple of days because I had to come back to run a race (more on that in next blog) and attend a wedding over the weekend. A short trip but always good to spend face-to-face time with the local community.

Check out some pictures from the trip:

FISL 2009 Speaker Certificate

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 :)

FISL 2009 Wrapup - 3 talks, 1 talk show, 14 blogs, 10 videos, 275 pics, 2 GlassFish production stories

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, NetBeans, MySQL and other offerings.

I delivered 3 talks and participated in 1 talk show:
  • Java EE 6 (slides) & Enterprise Features of GlassFish (slides)
  • Creating powerful web applications using GlassFish, MySQL and NetBeans/Eclipse slides
  • Continuous Integration using Hudson (slides)
  • Simon Phipps Talk Show
This blog featured 14 blogs, 10 videos, 275 pictures and 2 GlassFish production stories over the past week. The collage is created from some of the pictures:

Over all, thoroughly enjoyed the Brazilian spirit and looking forward to next visit!

Many thanks to the Sun Brazil team, especially Bruno Souza, Mauricio Leal, Eduardo Lima, Vitorio Sassi and other Campus Ambassadors!

FISL 2009 Day 3 in Pictures & Videos

Continuing from Day 1 and 2 ...

I participated in Simon Phipps Talk Show on GlassFish and that was fun :) The usual points:
  • ~50% of the projects currently target GlassFish and that the number jumps to 73% when only counting new projects (according to Ohloh reports)
  • Best price/performance, First to be Java EE 5 compliance and Most downloaded application server
  • The GlassFish download numbers are much higher than JBoss.
  • Brazilian community loves GlassFish over JBoss
Somebody in audience has been using GlassFish for past one year and very happy with it's performance.

I also delivered the Hudson talk on behalf of Fabiane Nardon. Hudson is an open source Continuous Integration system that is highly extensible and has a very healthy ecosystem around it. The slides are available here and can also be viewed below:

Now pics from the day ...

The Brazilian President Lula visited the pavilion but I left early so never got to see him ;-)

The speaker's dinner at 35CTG Churrascaria was nothing special but there were some real good live performances made the whole thing worthwhile. Enjoy it below:

And the evolving album:

See you in couple of hours at the last day of FISL and then finally head back to home :)

Digital TV-based Banking using GlassFish, NetBeans and MySQL - Ginga community in Brazil

Learn how GlassFish and NetBeans helped Ginga community to build a TV Banking application in Brazil. See a live demo of the product, it's really exciting!

Why GlassFish ? - They love how NetBeans tooling completely hides the complexity of what's happening underneath and the ease-of-use with GlassFish.

Thanks Hugo Lavalle for the interview and good luck with your product!
