India: A Developer Powerhouse
By Tori Wieldt-Oracle on Jun 03, 2013
JavaOne India was a opportunity to touch base with Java developers in India, and get a sense of the developer community there. What impressed me about India is the scale: there are so many people and so many developers! I got a chance to talk to some of them at the OTN lounge. Sit back and enjoy:
JUGChennai founder Raj Hegde discusses the Money and Currency API, Adopt A JSR, and JUGChennai.
Java Champion Hardshad Oak shares his views on the Oracle Java Cloud and the Indian Java developer community.
Gurpreet Sachdeva, Director of Technology at Aricent, discusses Java G1, the Java garbage collector, and situations when it is best to use G1.
Jitendra Chittoda discusses Java concurrency and the Dehli JUG.
The rest of the videos from JavaOne are on the Java Channel on YouTube:
- Ashwin Rao discusses how NetBeans is cutting-edge tool for cutting-edge Java.
- Lakshmi Narasimhan, IBM Java Technical Lead, discusses Project Penrose.
- Jim Weaver discusses JavaFX, the state of JavaFX 3-D, and why he likes developers in India.
- Adriaan de Jonge discusses speeding up the development process, the continuous delivery of software, and the Hindi concept of Jugaad.
- Willlam Louth discusses signals, boundries, and developing self-adaptive software libraries.
- Shailesh Shivakumar of InfoSys discusses why Java projects fail and what you can do to prevent it.
After watching these, I'm sure you'll agree that the Java developer community in India is big, multifaceted, and on the move.
