From Namaste to Nihao with NetBeans

The last few days I spent in Mumbai, India, at an Oracle office doing Oracle things. Beyond that, I can't say much, hopefully more sometime in the coming months! It was very interesting and intense and I'm looking forward to sharing more about that when the time is right. No time for sightseeing, well, except for the elevator up to the n-th floor of the building, which enabled this view:

Then on via Delhi to Shanghai, China, where the weather is quite different, as this picture shows (though in both places everyone was out in the street with umbrellas, though for opposite reasons, i.e., it was 37'C in Shanghai today), also from high up in a building where I'm spending my days until JavaOne China begins next week:

Interesting times for me, for sure! Really looking forward to meeting up with JavaOne China attendees next week. When I'm not presenting sessions about NetBeans, you'll find me at the NetBeans booth!


Welcome to China!

Oh no, a few Netbeans enthusiasts would have loved to meet you over coffee, if you had time. Have a fantastic JavaOne in China!

No worries, I'll be back! Watch this space for announcements about plans for October this year where I'll be back in India.

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
