Sun Learning Services Session @ Sun Tech Days 2009

On the concluding day of this years edition of Sun Tech Days in India, Sun Learning Services (SLS) offered two Hands On Tracks - one on JavaFX and another on Solaris Containers - for its Customers, Partners and Community, and the response was simply overwhelming. Thanks to all delegates who made it for this event.

I'm glad to have got an opportunity to speak to a larger audience on a grand occasion as Sun Tech Days and that too on a very useful Solaris 10 feature, one among several Virtualization Solutions from Sun. To know more details about a training on Solaris Containers, click here. In another location within the Sun Tech Days 2009 venue, my friend Stacy delivered a full day seminar on the new and exciting JavaFX technology. Detailed description about a JavaFX course can be found here.

How well I performed my job is for the delegates of my session to judge and comment. For me, speaking to an audience comprised of employees of various organizations (IBM, Wipro, UBS, TCS, BOA, HCL,CSC, Reliance to name a few), students and lecturers from several Engineering Colleges around and faculties from our partner Educational Institutions was an immensely satisfying experience.

Due to several last minute onsite registrations, the Student Kits, containing several materials including OpenSolaris and Netbeans DVD went out of stock and some delegates had to go back without it. While we arrange for its shipment to delegates who didn't get a Student Kit during the event, we would wish to remind all that OpenSolaris and Netbeans could be downloaded from the website as follows for immediate use: (i) OpenSolaris (ii) Netbeans .

Like all previous editions of Tech Days, the one that concluded yesterday also offered me several fond memories. The photograph below is just one of it:

On A Marathon...

Today was the concluding day of a three day session on Solaris 10, featuring SMF, Least Privilege, Zones, DTrace and ZFS. Below you would see the folks who participated in the discussion (one of 'em is missing from the snap). We also had a quick demonstration of OpenSolaris LiveCD and its 3D Desktop features using Compiz. If you haven't got your copy of OpenSolaris yet, it's time you get it from here.

Tomorrow early morning I'm flying to Delhi for a session on Solaris Cluster 3.2 and very clearly I don't think I have sufficient energy to write an essay at this stage. I have started to get a feel of how a marathon is like.

Good week ahead to all of you.
