Sun Tech Days
As faithfully as the fall colors of New England come around this time of the year, it's time for the next installment of Sun Tech Days. The Sun Tech Days is a world-wide Face-to-face event in which we highlight Java and other technologies from Sun.
Would be great to hear from the thousands of Tech Days alumni and the developers out there about the proposed agenda and how we can generally enhance the Tech Days experience. This year, we are also premiering Netbeans day and Solaris days in conjunction with the main event.
I am a firm believer that virtual learning has it's place and that learning is significantly enhanced in talking to peers, visionaries, etc. and just experiencing the energy level of being in a big room. At these events I have met many great developers around the world including fellow bloggers. To be able to see technologies, solutions and the everyday challenges and rewards through their eyes, is an unique experience for me. I have heard from many Tech Days attendees about how directly pertinent the Tech Days experience has been to their respective careers.
However, I also hope to turn over into a new leaf and start blogging more since I realize the limitations of events even if they're so widespread.
