It is fun and technology again. No time to take photos. Shared some ideas, issues, tools and tricks with my OpenSolaris buddies and some of the attendees. More socializing with Sun folks. Interacted with more attendees and suggested hints on the best ways to learn (a) OpenSoalris, (b) Java technologies. There are some in depth discussions on virtualization, types (and the good, bad & ugly) of hypervisor technologies from Sun and others.
Had to shorten my visit today due to other commitments in the evening. Short, yet sweet!

I am working for a software integrator company. My projects includes working on Java and Ruby on Rails and Ajax. I think Web Services is really cool. We also recently have to now work on REST and they are talking about mashups and Struts. Can anyone tell me if there are some good training or conferences so that me and my team members can get to speed with these technologies. Learning from books is not my cup of tea, even not when I was doing engineering 😉
All the help that group members can provide in this regard is much appreciated.
There are several online resources available that you just google for. If any of your team like to read then quality books from wiley and oreilly cover such technologies in detail.
I also highly recommend you could attend the upcoming Great Indian Developer Summit (developersummit dot com) that is covering Java, Agile, REST, JAX-RS, mashups, .NET, Rich Web, JPA, SOA, rich user experiences, Spring, Groovy and more. They have most of the creators of these technologies as speakers. My team is attending this summit 22-25 apr at IISc campus where we are attending the web conference on April 23 and java on April 24. We have been able to get very good discounts. Maybe all those who are interested from your group can sign up together and get a good bargain from them. what say? I also attended last year’s conference and had a really cool time.
In Hyderabad there is Sun Tech Days with some sun speakers.
Good to hear from you about Sun Tech Days.
I am planning to attend Sun Tech Days 09, hope to have the same experience as you had this time too.
