OSCON 2007 Trip Report

As reported earlier jMaki and GlassFish, along with a host of other Sun-led open source technologies (NetBeans, OpenJDK, OpenDS, Project Indiana, etc.), were present at OSCON 2007 last week. I spent my entire 2 days at the jMaki booth which had a consistent stream of visitors on both the days. In case you are interested, here is what I presented:

The videos of other demos shown at the pod will be made available on this blog in the next few days.

I could not attend any of the sessions except some of the keynote sessions on second day. Of all the keynote videos the one I'd like you to watch is Overcoming Bias by Prof Robin Hanson. The professor, an Economic Theorist, talks about how cognitive bias cause software projects to slip. Some of the quotes from his talk are "Be more honest about writing code" and "If you really care about truth, you'll work at it and try to overcome bias".

Here are some pictures.

WSIT and Web 2.0 at Atlanta Tech Days

Sun Tech Days is Sun's World Wide Developer Conference. The next venue is Atlanta, United States on Jan 16-17, 2007.

The complete agenda is very comprehensive consisting of a NetBeans day, OpenSolaris Day and technical sessions on Java SE and Java EE, Solaris OS, Tools and Web 2.0. And the best part is, all this is FREE. I'm presenting on:

  • Technologies and Tools for Web 2.0 (11:50 - 12:40pm)
  • JAX-WS and WSIT: Tangoing with .NET (2:40 - 3:30pm)

You can also take a full-day deep dive in development led by a master instructor for a modest price. The details are at the bottom of the agenda page. If you have not registered yet, in the vicinity of Atlanta, and would like to jump start your career - do it now.

The Sun Tech Days 2006 - 2007 World Tour schedule is available in the right column here.
