Lightening Talk at Tech Days
By Jay Mahadeokar on Feb 27, 2009
Hi! We were asked to give a small talk of 15 minutes at the Opensolaris track about our project. It was a great opprotunity for us to demonstrate out project in front of a quality audience.
What we learned during the first day at the booth was that, not many people knew what a sun spot is at the Tech Days!!! So, at the talk, firstly I gave a short intro of a Sun SPOT to the audience. I went on to explain how easy it is to program using our favourite JAVA.
Then we demonstrated the wireless feature of Sun SPOT by demo-ing a Sun SPOT controlled Pin Ball Game!
It was a instant hit and there was a great applause as Vasusen moved around the hall playing pinball with his remote SPOT. Then we also allowed some of the audience to play the game. It was really exciting to see the response.
Next we showed a small video of our project and again we got a great applause!!
Then Vasusen went on to explain what work we have done with the sun spots and the overall scope and future of project Canopee.
It was great to be able to talk in front of such audience and recieve such warm response! Sun Tech Days Rocks!
