Developer Day Workshops: Bigger, Better, More!

Developer Day, the free hands-on workshops brought to you by Oracle Technology Network, are bigger, better, and more frequent by popular demand!

For one, the program is now global, with workshops appearing all over the Americas, Europe, and Asia (and we're looking at the ME and Africa). Second, we've expanded the topics involved considerably over the years, with hot fresh new updates - such as Java Development with Java SE 7, Enterprise Java Development with GlassFish Server and Oracle WebLogic Server, and Database App Development with MySQL - now coming online. (Not only that, but you sysadmins now have your own SysAdmin Day, with Linux and Solaris tracks.) Third, most workshops include an Oracle VM VirtualBox appliance that offer you a complete sandbox dev environment.

Maybe best of all, for folks who can't get away from the office, we're running more Virtual Developer Day online workshops as well.

Here's just a few on the calendar in the near future:

..and there are many more examples of planned workshops here (subject to change).

What are you waiting for? They're free, get signed up!

Java Developer Day - The Aftermath

Thanks to everyone, and especially members of the NYC JUG, for your attendance at our first Developer Day focusing on pure Java development. This was our trial run, and after smoothing out some wrinkles, we go global: 50 or more similar workshops are planned worldwide in the next 6 months.

The agenda looked like this:

As is his habit, presenter Arun Gupta (Java EE & GlassFish) has provided a detailed trip report. I will also take the liberty of re-using some of Arun's photos:
