Sun Tech Days 2008 @ Hyderabad

Last week Hyderabad hosted the popular developer conference – Sun Tech Days for the second consecutive year.
It was a great 3-day event filled with learning (lots of technical sessions/labs) and entertainment (Euphoria concert, Talent show, Fashion show etc).

I really enjoyed the Day-2 keynote by David Axmark (MySQL co-founder).
He took us through the journey of MySQL – The world’s most popular open source database and shed some light on the road ahead.
His slide on Sun-MySQL partnership drew huge applause from a packed hall of developers.

As far as technical sessions go, the attendees had lot of options this year.
There were 3 tracks packed with various sessions and labs to choose from.
I had a pretty busy time taking the following sessions:

  • Ajax and Web 2.0 related frameworks & toolkits
  • Java Troubleshooting Tips
  • Java ME: Streaming Video from Server to Device (with Chuk Munn Lee and Terrence Barr)

The attendees had a great time attending different sessions throughtout the day and had more reasons to cheer for in the evenings.
If it was the popular band “Euphoria” rocking on Day 1, it was the fashion show that kept everyone in good spirits on Day 2 :).
All in all a great event as always.
