Sun Tech Days 2008:An insider review.

SUN tech days 08 in hyderabad was fantastic.
A lot of engineers attended and this I guess was one of the largest gathering of Developers in India in 2008.

This was a great platform for Sun to showcase its technology in India which has a large IT base.
Although the center point of focus was java and netbeans, there were also another interesting sessions.
Sessions on the new sun studio, presenters from Intel and AMD were a hit.

The demo booths were always crowded and attractive sessions were buzzing with people.
Around this time SUN had acquired MySQl and that keynote by David Axmark was fanstastic involving a lot of passion.

But there were certain things that were striking otherwise as well.
A lot of in-session advertisement hurts and takes the focus out of technology to Sun marketing.
I am not saying this was not required, but overdoing it or bringing it into the very dynamics of technology is not welcome.
And as for the other keynotes, they were too long and doing overtime.

Another thing was that Sun kept focus on software side, while it's and irony of sorts that Sun makes money more from Systems than from Software alone.

Hardware demonstrations and session need to be added as well. A simple sun machine power needs to be brought out especially in a country like India, where the market is highly price sensitive but huge.
Technology like Sun ray and desktops like the Ultra 24 boxes should also be added to the set of demonstrations.

As for my own liking, the food was best. It is heartning to see that Sun does excellent managing a conference of this stature.
Kudos to those who made the last year a success. Keep the good work going.


I am a student persuing Masters in Computer Applications and really interested in java language.I
have read many articles regarding the Sun Micro Systems conferences and really got inspired by
them.I was really willing to attend the session but heard that the conference is allowed only
for the delegates or the people working in IT sector.As a student learning java i would
request you to conduct any worthy conferences for the students to become well versed in Java.

Thank you

Why Sun do not organize a SUN TECH DAYS in PUNE.

Posted by Jitesh Dedhiya on February 11, 2009 at 05:15 AM IST #


This is because of logistical details which I unfortunately cannot elaborate.
SUN tech days happen only once a year and once in the associated countries.
There had been attempts to move it to different cities for every year, but there have been some problem with it.
It has been happening in HICC, Hyderabad for quite a few years now and I guess Sun is happy with the facilities there.

However, there have been more similar demands and since last year SUN has been live telecasting SUN tech days in Bangalore and Chennai.
So may be you and bunch of more folks (if there are more) can request to do the same in Pune as well.
