Fabiane Nardon and SOUJava gang are also organizing a Geek Bike Ride on the Sunday (Dec 4th) before JavaOne. The 20k ride (map) starts at 7am and goes through the streets of Sao Paulo. This is an opportunity to meet some of the JavaOne speakers and attendees outside the conference. They've even designed a t-shirt and 32 geeks have signed up so far.

I'm glad my discussion with Fabiane during FISL early this year for arranging this bike ride is finally taking shape! I'm definitely looking forward to it and will be bringing nice fruity Odwalla bars for all the riders. Be there to ride with me and many others :-)

Stay updated by following @oracledobrasil and @javaoneconf.

I'll be there, will you ?

Don't wait and register now!

And in case you are interested in reading about the experience from last year ... it was lot of fun! Just check out a collage of pictures yourself ...

TDC 2011 Trip Report

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.

Check out some pictures from the TDC 2011 ....

And, as always, the complete album:

I'm certainly glad to be back home after being on the road for 15 days but it was a very enjoyable and a valuable experience!
