Tech Demo at Estácio
By jonasdias on Mar 15, 2008
Today, I did a 2 hours presentation with Pedro Reis (another CA from Rio de Janeiro) at Estácio de Sá University, on the center of Rio. We had an attendance of 62 people, including 5 professors, of the Java Development pos graduation class.
The presentation slides were prepared by Bruno Bastos (Petrópolis Sun CA) and I added some ones latter. The first arrangement was that Bruno and Luiz Aquino would do the today’s tech talk on Estácio, but in the end, things got totally different.
Bruno had an important appointment for today and Luiz Aquino got Dengue disease and needed to stay resting. So, I completed the task with Pedro!
Bruno made a cool web service and client system on NetBeans to show on the presentation. I constructed a simpler one during the demo (to make it on shorter time), and then, showed Bruno’s. The examples were quite nice because we were able to illustrate many features of NetBeans on a single shot, like the easy implementation of a web service, it’s integration with Glassfish and the way to use it on a client that can be developed using NetBeans Matisse! Everybody got really impressed!
Aside the Web Services and GlassFish, we talked about NetBeans 6.0 features (emphasizing the new ones), the SAI program, and the Java Certification, explaining how they can get theirs with discount! I inserted an OpenSolaris slide, focusing on SXDE, for fast and easy development, they got tempted to try it!
In the end, we raffled some souvenirs like Sun pens, All Access Kit DVDs, OpenSolaris mini-books and locksmiths.
Some professors on the room asked us to schedule more presentation on another institutes and universities on Rio that they give classes too. They will help us organize it there.
