Sun TechDays 09 kicks off; see you in Brazil



What is it?
Sun TechDays 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 C/C++/Fortran Tools?
Three things:
A broader Sun Studio Overview presentation(preso here) that gives the broad picture with Performance, Parallelism, Productivity Tools (IDE, Debugger, Analyzer) and Multiplatforms (Linux, Solaris) focus
Performance 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
Parallel Programming (preso here) with emphasis on MPI, Automatic Parallelization/Vectorization, OpenMP, Multi-threading (with support in debugger and Analyzer)
What do you get by attending?
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 with your 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 Brazil next week: Sept 29 - Oct 1.
