By narayanaa on Feb 18, 2009
Sun Tech days started today in a gala fashion today at HICC center defying the economic downturn. For Sun Hyderabad is important since the developer participation is resembles JavaOne the biggest developer conference in size, number of tracks its offering apart from hands on labs.
The presence of James Gosling for this event says how much important this event in India is for Sun. James delivered key note spoke on lot of technologies but the most interesting for me are the following in the following order:
- Real time java -- because of the sheer technical challenges it poses like predictability. Just imagine how can you predict the Garbage collection in such a scenario or handling of thread priority ...
- Ubiquitous computing and the power of Java
- Java FX -- bringing the power of rich client experience that's much needed for Java plat form. The small game demo which he showed on his mobile apart from Chuck lee's another small presentation on FX again really were eye catchers...
- Java 7 -- and what's coming there.
The crowd is still fantastic during these times and Sun I believe is very successful in pulling so much.. Kudos to the event organizers.
On a personal note I presented Open - ESB on Enterprise Track. Seemingly went well I 'll be posting the site so that you can download the preso!
The night party started with a wonderful performance from the trio (see below for pics) and ended with a fashion show from Rahul's team which was received with enthusiasm from the crowd.
