TechDays coming to Oz

Not confirmed, of course, but the inside word is that we'll be getting Sun Tech Days some time soon.

The problem in the past has been that we just couldn't get the numbers high enough to make it worthwhile for Sun to move the whole 4-day extravanganza to Oz/ New Zealand. However, the developer community has been increasingly responsive to our local DevDays, and with some assistance from technology (videoconferencing, Live-Aid style), we should be able to make it something special. Stay tuned.

Our recent DevDays event event quite well, albeit with some technical hitches : Qantas losing peoples' luggage all over the place - what is going on with them!?, sound systems not working, internet connections ditto, projectors being recalcitrant, me still suffering from this misbegotten 'flu, etc.. However, audience response was generally quite positive, and the numbers of attendees were higher than we expected. Very satisfying.

After JavaOne, we'll be having a large Horizons event, this time with both technical and managerial tracks. Horizons originated with SeeBeyond, but this will include sessions - from customers as well as Sun folks - on all of the infrastructure, including Tools, my main interest. Should be good, and we hope to bring some of the JavaOne magic to the event.
