We had to move to a bigger hall for the workshop as the initially planned location was housefull and we are expecting more.

At the end of the workshop, we presented some goodies to the winners of the paper presentations, and to few smart guys from the audience.[Read More]

Further to my posting on WebSphere Technical conference being hosted here in India for the first time, yesterday the conference kicked off. There was a keynote address from Rob High, IBM's Chief Architect for SOA Foundation. The keynote was an an overview on SOA and covered some of the products fitting in the IBM's SOA Reference Architecure. Some interesting queries have come up around ESB. I'll gather some more of them and post them later. Over 77 sessions are being held over the 4 day event, with good hands-on sessions as well. Have a look at some of the event pictures of Day 1. I'll post more as I get them.

Free and Open Source Software (FOSS.IN) is being held between Nov 24 and 26 in Bangalore at National Science Symposium Centre of the Indian Institute of Science (IISc). It started out as a small pavilion in BangaloreIT.com in 1999 and last year around 3000 visited, along with the who's who of Linux and the open source world. This time the Talks distribution is such that 60% is Technical, 10% is Evangelism, 10% is FOSS in Education and the rest is Others(business/promos??).

Further to my posting on Geronimo's 2.0 release plan dates, Geronimo 2.0 M1 was released on Dec 22, as per plan. You can download it from here and give it a try. This is a preview of Geronimo's Java EE implementation, with EJB 3, JPA, and the recent servlet/JSP specifications. This is only a preview, so things might not be stable, but it's definitely worth looking at.
