Developing communities

This week, Sun is conducting a series of free lessons on open-source technology at the Hanoi University of Technology and Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology in Vietnam.

There are 130 university and college students in attendance, and the courses are being run in collaboration with the Department of Information Technology of the Ministry of Education and Training.   

The training is part of the Java Education and Development Initiative, also known as JEDI, which is a project developed by Sun that was first introduced in 2005 in the Philippines.  In the past four years, JEDI has benefitted more than 190,000 students in countries such as Indonesia and Brazil, among others.

I applaud Sun's initiative behind the JEDI program, which provides free high-quality documents on IT and computer sciences to universities and colleges and offers students access to abundant materials and software.  

In the past six months, the government of Vietnam has been investing time and energy in adopting more open-source technology, and what better way to organically do so then by starting with the students who will soon be the backbone of the country.
