JavaOne Russia and JavaOne India
By oracletechnet on Jun 01, 2011
JavaOne India was held in Hyderabad in early May. There were
approximately 3,000 developers in attendance. Sonya Barry, Community
Manager for Java.Net, and Tori from the OTN team were in the Oracle Technology Network booth.
We gave away software DVDs of Pre-Built VMs for Developers. They were a huge hit, even though the software is free and easy to download. Bandwidth is at a premium in India (the convention center was charging $40 USD a day for wifi!), so downloading 7GB can be a real challenge. We ended up giving away all 3000 of our DVDs in a matter of hours! Once we gave away all the DVDs, traffic to the booth was slow but steady. In general, the crowd was very enthusiastic.Thanks for coming folks!
