Sun Tech Days Hyderabad Talent Show Video - Day 2

Sun Tech Days are fun event where you learn a lot about different Sun technologies. A "fun fun" event in the agenda is a talent show where attendees get a chance to show their weirdest skill on the stage. A winner is decided by the audience applause and awarded a leather jacket. And it requires a lot of courage to do that in front of 5000 people, as was the case in Hyderabad Tech Days 2008. There were four participants who performed a variety of activities - yoga, reverse counting from 100 to 1, mimicry and singing.

Enjoy the video of this unique talent show and then decide who was the winner :)

Sun Tech Days Beijing - Talent Show in Pictures

One of the Sun Tech Days event is "Talent Show". It allows the conference attendees to demonstrate their non-technical skills on the stage. It was first introduced 5 years ago and became so popular that it's now part of the regular agenda. Attendees do all sort of things - typically juggling, dancing, singing, wiggling ears, whistling and I remember the winner at Atlanta Tech Days showed a back flip. And the winner is awarded a Java Jacket.

The show serves two purpose: audience interaction and add levity in a technical conference. As Jonathan Schwartz says - The Age of Participation is Now and this event encourages the community to show their skills to rest of the audience.

The way it works is that 3 volunteers are chosen from the attendees in the room, each volunteer gets to introduce them self and then demonstrate the talent. After all the volunteers have shown then the audience is asked to pick a winner by applause meter. In Beijing, there was an overflow room for the morning session and so there were two sets of volunteers who demonstrated their talent. And of course, we gave out two Java Jackets as well :)

Here is the talent show captured in pictures:

   

The winners this time performed Street Dancing and Kick Boxing. Watch the complete album here:
