I recently arrived in Seoul, South Korea. I'll be presenting, to customers and the folks from the local office, on NetBeans, web 2.0 and SaaS/network.com. I am yet to make some changes to some of the slides, however I don't have any appointments today and I should be able to customize the presentations with updates from Java One. The network.com have demoed the storage service (Sun internal deployment so far), developer collaboration services and project Hydrazine looks very promising. I need to incorporate these new services and infrastructure that are starting to define Sun's SaaS offering.
The city's architecture is stunning. This is the first time I've been to Asia and the only footage of Korea that came to mind before the trip was from the Olympic stadium and History Channel documentaries from the early 1950's. What I've experience since my arrival last night was very different. The city is vibrant, the people courteous, the skyline reminds my of Chicago, the size of the metropolitan area is overwhelming. Sun's office is located in a highrise (ASEM Tower 15th Floor 159-1 Samseong-dong) next of a world famous shopping mall - COEX. I am looking forward to spending the week in Seoul - learning about the Asian marketplace, customer needs and perhaps visiting a few landmarks.
Stay tuned for pics.
