Greetings from Tel Aviv! Congrats to the local Sun team for organizing second round of the Java Tech Day, I delivered two presentations about NetBeans at the event - it's great to see so much interest in Java and NetBeans here. Even though Israel is not a large country by population (I believe the population is about 7 million), the room for keynotes was completely full - it happened in a place which is usually used for big weddings :). The Java ME development seems to be really active here - I noticed more interest in Java ME than in some other parts of the world.
Btw, If you're wondering where is the next episode of NetBeans podcast - both me and Gregg have been travelling a lot in past few weeks so we couldn't sync up (I confess it's my fault, not Gregg's). I decided to take a vacation in Israel, I'll visit Jerusalem and do some sightseeing, so we'll record it once I get back - during next week. So stay tuned! :)
