Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced the details of the Sun Tech Days worldwide developer conferences for 2007-2008. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Sun Tech Days program — a 15 city world tour designed to educate developers in local markets. Based on feedback from developers around the world, the Sun Tech Days program has been expanded to include content on Ajax and Web 2.0 related frameworks and toolkits, application performance tuning, JRuby, and building rich Web applications with jMaki and JavaFX Script.
Sun Tech Days are loaded with technical content, practical “how to” information, examples of real-world solutions, tips on application performance tuning, hands-on training and more. The first event is in Boston on Wednesday, September 12, 2007. James Gosling, vice president and Sun Fellow is the featured keynote. http://developers.sun.com/events/techdays/2007/US_BOS.jsp.
Attendees can also choose to attend either NetBeans(TM) Day or OpenSolaris(TM) Day, one of two bonus developer days, on Tuesday, September 11, 2007. There is no charge to attend Sun Tech Days or the bonus developer days in Boston but space is limited.
