Day 2: Sun Tech Days - Hyderabad
By narayanaa on Feb 19, 2009
Today's highlights from my perspective are
- Matt Thompson's presentation on cloud computing -- Matt explained the bits and pieces of cloud computing, Sun's offering in cloud computing stack. The most interesting piece for the development community is how the computing going to transform the way we code. Project Kenai and Project Zembly.
- Chck's presentation on Java FX, which is coherent, ordered and informative
- Simons presentation was very informative on Java performance..
Project Kenai doe's just offer site for pushing in the code like sourceforge, but it offers the full development stage including desktop,offers for choosing OS, build environment, test environment all on the cloud apart from the development tools like Netbeans. This offers the developers to choose the environment they want to develop, test deploy with out paying a penny out of their pocket. Just have Internet connection and create a company with zero cost. Have a distributed team over the net use the Sun's cloud facility to host your idea.
Project Zembly is another innovation from Sun which gives the users the power to create the widgets for social applications and share them with their family, friends and the whole world. The demo by Vidya on stage with Matt proved that simple social application can be developed previewed just on the browser without any other paraphernalia like IDE, runtime to test on the developer's machine. So the Browser happens to be the dev place ..
And when we think of the possibilities which these 2 innovations can bring to the way we think about apart from other things to the software development its awesome!!!!
Out of the stalls from the students, I liked the one from MS Ramaiah college of Bangalore, which have done a POC on Network Management solution available on web services. I spoke to them regarding ideology of Network Virtualization in the Management paradigm.
Apart from that I had few good discussions with the attendees for the yesterday's session on Open-ESB. The questions centered around why should they choose Open-ESB while they have other alternatives also in open source. I would like to post the answers though in some other posts..
