As part of JavaU courses offered this JavaOne, a GlassFish Application Server bonus training course was offered for free as part of a multi course deal.
Many attended this course on Monday, May 05, 08. Arun Gupta and I presented at this course. We are pleasantly surprised by the turn out of around 180 given that it was in the evening (6 - 9 pm), 3 hours long, and JavaOne had not yet started! That was surely a boost of positive energy for me.
The most interesting part of the course for me was the number of questions from the greatly interactive audience right from the get go. We answered most of the questions, even picked up an NB issue from an audience member in the web services area, and the feedback we received was mostly that the course was very helpful for the audience to understand how the product features and capabilities stacked up with their experience with other app servers such as WebLogic and JBoss.
We finished around 9.45 pm.
Since the printed slide deck was only a portion of the total at the time it went to print, I promised the audience that I would make this available through my blog.
So here it is. JavaU Bonus Course on GlassFish Application Server Java One 2008
