SunTech days Mumbai
By pradhap on Feb 26, 2007
Recently Sun conducted TechDays across various parts in India. Main SunTech days event was held at Hyderabad. In addition to that Sun also conducted TechDays in various cities Mumbai, Pune and Delhi. We had 400+ (approx) attendees for the conference in Mumbai. Till 12pm we had "Live Satellite Link" to SunTech days Hyderabad. Sridhar Reddy from Sun Developer Outreach gave talks on (Java SE6, Simplifying Persistence and AJAX, jMaki and Phobos for Web 2.0 Development using Java) and I gave talk on "Solaris: The Developer Friendly Operating System". In addition to our talks we had speakers from Accenture (Implementing Secure J2EE Web Services & Sun Identity Management Solutions) and SAS (Data Visualization for Large Scale Analytical Data). People who attended talks were mostly working professionals and few students.
Since we delayed the start we had to rush through and some of the talks. My talk started at arround 6'pm evening. I had very little time to cover whole of Solaris 10 features. I ended my preso at arround 6.45pm and the people started of with various queries on (DTrace, ZFS and Zones). Solaris Q&A session went more than 20mins. Finally talk ended arround 7.15pm. Couple of folks stayed back and asked various queries about Solaris 10 technologies. It was a nice experience getting to know the developer community in Mumbai.
