Like every year, this year also we had a fifteen minute session (~) on 'Strange & Unusual Talent' (earlier known as 'Java Jacket Giveaway') for which nine delegates got on to the stage to display their talent and win back a really cool Java Leather Jacket. This time around a Flautist and a 'dancer' managed to win the support of thousands of Tech Days delegates (winner is decided based on the intensity of applause by the audience) to carry away a Java leather jacket each.
I'm certain, thousands of Tech Days 2010 delegates had great two days of learning and of course some fun.

On a stage that reflected only bright red colour from one end to the other, Ravichandra Kulur displayed his extraordinary skill in playing the Flute quite effortlessly. It was mind blowing.
It was followed by a demonstration around a new feature in VirtualBox called teleporting and then about a really cool drawing tool developed using JavaFX.
Krishan Dhawan, Managing Director of Oracle India addressed the crowd after this.
As James Gosling walked on to the stage, thousands of Tech Days Delegates gathered in there gave him a very warm reception. He covered quite a few things in his keynote, starting with the staggering statistics about 10 billion-ish Java Enabled Devices, a number more than the human population on earth(!), jdk 7, Java EE 6, Glassfish v3, Netbeans 6.8, Java Card 3, JavaFX.
Among several interesting things that James Gosling spoke on day 01 of Tech Days 2010 at Hyderabad, a few things that stand out in his keynote is his reference to Java being used in all Universities across the globe as part of undergraduate courses and how students could just "Learn (it) Once and Work Anywhere," his mentioning of blogs by Mark Reinholds and John Rose to pick up new knowledge on Java technology, his excitement about the auto deployment feature of Glassfish v3 that enables a developer to modify his/her code on the fly without wasting any time and finally about his thoughts on multi-threaded programming and its significance a few years into the future (say 2030), where one might see processors that may have more than 5000 cores(!!!), courtesy Moore's law.
What interested me personally was the software that James was using to run through his presentation. Though he was using an Apple laptop, I was sure he was neither using a keynote or an OpenOffice.Org. He revealed to us at one point of time during his presentation that he was using an application that he developed using JavaFX to run through his slides!!! That was kind of cool. I am inspired and I am going to spend some time reading and developing on JavaFX. I encourage all of you to do so, coz it is damn cool.
Several break out sessions (a.k.a tracks) on different technologies occurred at different locations within the venue and it all appeared to be well-received by the delegates. And after all that, we had some entertainment session in the late evening, something that's unchanged on the Tech Days agenda for several years now.
A good day 01 at Tech Days 2010 .

While I wouldn't forget the remarkable experience of being driven in a car through dense fog with near zero visibility and yet managing to reach the destination on time, on all days of my stay at Delhi, I think the memories of my sessions with the folks on the picture above would remain clearer. It was fun, to say the least. Finally, before I left them, I wanted them to experience the joy of teaching...
Thank you folks for some great memories; more so for the wonderful gift.

Before we bid farewell to this year and welcome the New Year, it isn't inappropriate to spare some moments to reflect on the surprises - some pleasant, some shocking- that life had in store for us in the year that's passing by. Such sessions of reflection would only bring into light a common pattern in our lives: some moments of glory, some of utter misery, some exciting ones, some very depressing, some that invokes happiness and some grievous and sick. One would imagine that all such elements of emotion shall continue to show up in everyone's life and that all of us, at least on the day before another New Year in our life, spend a few minutes figuring out means that'd help us raise ourselves to a different plane enabling us to digest all ups and downs in life with equanimity, and not just hope for a New Year full of only favourable events.
Like I have written elsewhere, every time I fall into a retrospective mood, what comes to my mind instantly are memories of time spent with some good human beings and their influence in my makeup: be it my loving relatives, affectionate friends, extremely professional colleagues or cherished training participants. So on the last day of an eventful Year 2009, the least I should do to satisfy my conscience is to spend some time remembering them all, expressing my deep felt gratitude and affection. I thank God for connecting me with so many wonderful people and giving me opportunities after opportunities to learn so many valuable lessons in life. I'm hopeful, the Year 2010 would bring me many more such great 'teachers'.
Here's wishing all a very happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year 2010.

And to the folks in the photograph below, who attended the DSEE training at Chennai, my sincere thanks for choosing Sun and more so for offering a wonderful gift.
Life will go on. And from among the very many wild variations in the series of events in life, I would continue to observe and note those little ones that will fall in some interesting pattern.

The program participants were generous to step out of their premise, declared as a 'No Photograpy Zone', to pose for a batch photograph. And the least I should do in return is to publish it here:

Since the course used a number of software components like Glassfish, WebServer, 'OpenDS', Directory Server EE and of course OpenSSO, I requested all participants to help me do a quick review of the entire course on the last day by doing a teach back. Thanks to each of them for doing a good job reviewing the topics well, helping each other gain considerably good clarity on the overall contents of the course.
For me, the bygone week was nothing less than immensely satisfying.
