Some Quick Updates

That I've been busy is an understatement. In the last four weeks or so, managed to do programs on technologies ranging from Operating platform to Database to Engineered Systems. In the process I met up with the following folks:


MySQL Training in Noida.


Exadata Training in Singapore.


Solaris 11 Training program at Chennai.

In addition, I had connected with many others, but don't have their 'faces' to show coz I met them on WebEx.

Now, if you find it too hard to pick up OKM on your own, please attend an OU program on the product.

Thanks to all in the picture below for dropping in to our classroom session for a five day program on Solaris Cluster 3.2 11/09 release.

OpenSSO Deployment Essentials Session at Hyderabad

I've spoken here how engaging is to go through this program on OpenSSO. It was no different when I met up with the folks in the snap below at Hyderabad.



As usual, I didn't spare them from having to go through a teach back session on the concluding day of the program. They all did a great job in presenting the Access Management concepts in under two hours time.

'kolkata Marathon' - Concluding Phase

Like I mentioned in my earlier post, my ten day 'marathon', kick started on 9th of this month at a client location Kolkata on Identity Management solution from Sun concluded last evening and I'm back in Bangalore. I'd believe that the program met its objective and I hope my friends in the picture below derive benefit out of the same.

'Kolkata Marathon' - Phase I

Two days from now, the city of Kolkata is hosting a walkathon, supposedly the first of its kind in the city. Though I'm in kolkata now, I have made no plans whatsoever to walk along with the whole of Kolkata in the walkathon as mentioned above. As such, I am already in a marathon, started exactly five days back, at a leading IT Consulting company in this part of India. In case if it isn't clear, let me use plainer language and say, I am doing a continuous ten days training program at a client location here in Kolkata. And this evening, the first part of 'my marathon' came to a conclusion. Tomorrow, I'm starting its second phase, spanning over to the next five days.

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:

Sun Fire Midrange Server Training at Hyderabad

This evening I'm leaving a city where the father of Java would enlighten thousands of Java aficionados a couple of days forward to the Valentine's day this year in a grand event that's expected to bring a record number of developers under one roof. Well I'm no James Gosling to address an audience of thousands, but came to Hyderabad to teach half a dozen folks some lessons on Sun Fire Midrange Server . The course concludes today and I'm off to Bangalore, hoping to hit Hyderabad soon to find myself seated among a huge audience ,listening to James Gosling and several other distinguished speakers. My dear reader, while you make up your mind to plan and attend this years Sun Tech Days in India, I'll leave you with the batch photograph of this weeks batch at Hyderabad, concluding today.



And yeah, if you decide to take up the rare opportunity to see James Gosling and other visionaries of Sun share their thoughts, live, register for Sun Tech Days 2009 right here.

Sun IDM Training No. ... Don't Know!

It has been frequent, it has been popular and it has been well received as one of the best offerings from SLS - the course on Sun Java System Identity Manager. Ask me for a count and I'd disappoint you because I've lost track of it, for IDM 345 happened aplenty in this part of the world. All the same, let me put up the batch photograph of last weeks IDM class in here:



Through a teach back session, in a matter of an hour, I got to hear from them, all that they learned in five days time. Their performance was captured and that's what you see below:


I'm certain, some day or the other, there'll be a part 2 for this story.

A Small IDM Batch

Last week I completed the smallest ever batch on Sun's provisioning tool, course coded IDM 345. My Master at times says words along these following lines: it doesn't matter how many people come to listen to you, you have to speak what you have to speak. And so I spoke, to an audience of three, whom you see in the photo below:



Good week ahead to all of you.

OpenSSO Training for Free

The most attractive price tag that I've ever come across is free\*. Generally, the asterisk sticking around the news about the free releases would often have some or the other strings attached to it. Some time back Sun announced the release of OpenSSO Express, which is made available to the public, again for free. For those who managed to get to the OpenSSO site and download the product would already be aware of the fact that, there wasn't any 'conditions apply' tag attached to the free availability of OpenSSO from Sun. That means absolute zero entry barrier for those interested. I have heard complaints from many, that though Sun gives away products for free, we charge heavy for its training! Not sure if that's true, but if there is anyone out there who believes it so, it's time to think otherwise.

My good friend David has managed to prepare a courseware and a VM Lab files to run through some complex deployment scenarios of OpenSSO. And what more, all of this you can download and learn for free. For that, visit the OpenSSO website and click on the 'Training' link. Please note that this current beta training is offered on the unsupported pre-release product (OpenSSO build 4.5). For more details with snapshots on the process, check out David's blog. And yeah, do find some time to thank him for this work. Happy learning!

Solaris Cluster 3.2 Training in Bangalore

On a day, when a series of low intensity bomb blasts sent shocking waves in the city of Bangalore, all of us in the picture below were concluding our discussions on Solaris Cluster. For the wonderful time spent with such a huge batch and for the unprecedented serial blasts in Bangalore that shocked and disappointed all of us, this concluding day of ES 345 training wouldn't dissipate from my mind for long.

IDM 345 is Not JAT

Exactly two days back, yet another IDM 345 training concluded here in Bangalore. Below this note, you would see my training participants. After sweating it out for five days, just about everyone in the group expressed to me that what they went through in five days were some real intriguing sessions on Sun Java System Identity Manager, quite unlike many other training programs that they previously attended. Of course, that's largely attributed to the very nature of this course, containing some exhaustive lab materials, requiring every attendee to focus hard for five continuous days, which may turn out to be taxing . Afterall, it's the first of two parts of a popular bootcamp program that existed on Sun's provisioning tool two years back or so. Know that the sequel to this course "Sun Java System Identity Manager: Deployment Fundamentals II" coded IDM 4485 is even tougher. For all the prospective IDM 345 candidates, please note that IDM 345 or its 'brother' IDM 4485 is not Just Another Training, but a marathon that's real energy sapping. But hey, it's worth it!
