JavaOne Russia and Chennai Java Summit in Photos and More

Posted by editor on April 22, 2011 at 12:30 PM PDT

Last week, on April 12th and 13th, JavaOne Russia was held at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow. A few days (April 16-17) and about 5500 km (~3500 miles) away in the time-space continuum, the first ever Chennai Java Summit took place.

Oracle's Sharat Chander has uploaded a JavaOne 2011 - Moscow, Russia web album onto Picassa. If you'd like to listen to some interviews that took place at the conference, check out Java Spotlight Episode 25: JavaOne Russia, which features interviews with people at the conference's Java DEMOGrounds (pictured above).

Meanwhile, photos from the Chennai Java Summit, an initiative of India's JUG Chennai, are now available as a slide series at the end of the Chennai Java Summit – Java User Group – Chennai 16th and 17th April 2011 blog post. The summit was held at Tenth Planet Technologies Pvt. Ltd., in Chennai.

After the summit, Ramachandran took the time to post a blog, Participated in Chennai Java Summit 2011, relating his experience at the summit. Ramachandran said "This is the first time I am attending the JUGC event and I was very happy to be part of this great event. I wish and expect JUGC to organize many events like this in the future." Given that the Chennai Java Summit page says that JUG Chennai is going to "try to have this event as an annual event" and also notes that JUG-C "has been conducting monthly meetups regularly," I thing Ramachandran's wish and expectation will most certainly be fulfilled.

What's up next? Well, a mere 520 or so km (~325 miles) and 23 days away from the end of the Chennai Java Summit, JavaOne and Oracle Develop India gets under way. Terrence Barr looks ahead to this event in a recent blog post. Weblogs
