What is it?
is a world tour, where we take our
technologies to around 14 cities around the globe and hold 2 or 3 day
events (plus, typically a University Day) talking about current and
future technologies from Sun.
Typically, the tracks include Java SE,
EE, ME technologies, NetBeans IDE, Open Source, and OpenSolaris.
As in past years, I am going to visit some of these events as a speaker
(typically 3-4 events). Its a great learning experience, a wonderful
way to interact with a typically younger crowd and understand the
developer thinking from outside the Sun box . And in a modest way, I am
happy to help educate the community on Sun's developer technologies,
priorities and focus.
What are we talking about with
What do you get by attending?
A broader Sun
Studio Overview presentation(preso here)
that gives the broad

Debugger, Analyzer) and Multiplatforms (Linux, Solaris) focus
Tuning Tools (preso here)
with emphasis on compiler optimization
cookbook, observability and tuning tools such as: Performance Analyzer,
DTrace GUI (Plugin), D.light and some emphasis on Thread Analyzer for
data-race and deadlock detection capability
Programming (preso here)
with emphasis on MPI, Automatic
Parallelization/Vectorization, OpenMP, Multi-threading (with support in
debugger and Analyzer)
Tech Days are your opportunity to hear
from and meet
with some of the
brightest engineers from around the world. It's an chance to network
peers, understand more about what's going on from Sun and the industry
and all in a local environment.
The first one kicks off in
