Sun in Manila (17 - 19 June)!

The Sun Tech Days program is a 15-city world tour designed to educate developers in local markets on various technologies. The events are typically a two-day format and range from hands on education and university trainings to community programs and technical sessions.

From Tuesday 17th to Thursday 19th of this month, the event will take place in Manila, Philippines. The agenda looks very interesting. I've been to a few Sun Tech Days events before and apart from the sessions one might expect (JPA, JRuby, OpenSolaris, Swing, Java EE), there are a couple of sessions that move beyond these typical Sun talks. Take for example "OSGi: Development and Deployment", on Wednesday at 17.30. And how about the one right after that, on "Java EE with Spring and Seam"? In any case, the program is packed with sessions on the same topics, and of the same quality, as those presented at JavaOne. So if you're a programmer in Manila who never made it to JavaOne, this is definitely not a conference that you want to miss.

On the 17th, there'll be a "FREE NetBeans DeepDive Session", which is something like a NetBeans Day, except that a lot more time will be spent on fewer topics, which is pretty cool. I'll be there too, spending an hour and a half on "Using NetBeans for Desktop Development". I'll first talk about the Matisse GUI Builder, then on the NetBeans tooling for JSR-296 (the Swing Application Framework), and finally I will introduce the audience to the NetBeans Platform. I think the combination of Matisse GUI Builder, JSR-296, and the NetBeans Platform gives the desktop developer a very comprehensive range of choices, for desktop applications of every size and shape.

Go here to register, if you haven't done so yet.

Here's a summary of what you can expect on the "FREE NetBeans DeepDive Session":

There will also be a NetBeans Platform training at the university, on the 20th and 21st, delivered by Tim and myself. I'm looking forward to my time in Manila. No idea what to expect of it!
