Posted by arungupta on September 30, 2008 at 6:20 AM PDT



Sun
Tech Days
kick started yesterday in the beautiful city of href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sao_Paulo">Sao Paolo,
Brazil. Over 1000 attendees, completely charged, willing to
discuss their issues, amazing amount of energy and all there to learn
about different Sun
technologies - just a superb recipe to succeed and outpace everybody
else in the world!



The GlassFish
session was packed with 400 attendees and there were attendees all over
the floor :) The slides are available href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/resource/confs/glassfish-techdays-saopaolo.pdf">here.
The demos showed during the talk are listed as blog URLs in the slides.

It is a great restaurant with wilderness ambience, and as always, great
hospitality. If you are in the city of Sao Paolo, this is another great
place to go!
