Sun Tech Days
By vihangpathak on Nov 03, 2007
Sun Tech Days, one of the most
coveted events by Sun was held this month.
And guess the venue. It was none other than the very place where 2008 Olympic Games going to be held. Yes, you guessed it right. It was none other than Beijing, China. You can spot the Bird's nest in the picture, peeping behind the balloons over the Sun Tech Days venue the Beijing International Convention Center. This was the 10th anniversary of Sun Tech Days and we celebrated it by cutting a cake.
The first day began with welcome speeches and key notes(Jim Hughes) from Sun and Oracle in a very warm and spirited manner.
Then followed some very cool demos, one was about Sun SPOTs,
JavaFX, small devices which can communicate
helping the dream of controlling your Home AC from your office,
hopefully, a reality. Then ofcourse was JavaFX, which seems to be
catching up quite a bit. Some cool features of Netbeans followed.
OpenSolaris, Glassfish, OpenPortal, Oracle BPM,Workflow, OpenESB, Metro- Web Services, JavaFX, JRuby were other technical sessions apart from the various hands on labs that were being carried out. Time passes and Glassfish day arrived promising lots of interest. Not disappointing there was a quite a turnout for Glassfish Day.
The participants seem to be very enthusiastic and keen to participate. As was reflected by the one of the most interesting events of the Sun Tech Days, Beijing, the talent show. The participants who were aged group between 15-25 were in high spirits and ready to go. Ofcourse one was the winner and she won the cool Java Leather Jacket for dancing.
In a nutshell loads of fun, loads of energy and loads of participation and some very powerpacked sessions.
