I have really little time to prepare this presentation (one day) but everything goes right. I prepared the slides during the night, took some food, soft drinks and gifts, called the students using our mail list. We had few people but was a good audience for the first weak of the university calendar.
Some guys at the beginning of the demo.
We talked two hours about stuff like:
- Netbeans: Netbeans history, architecture and available modules. We did a demo showing some functionalities and I showed how use Issuezilla to report an bug.
- Sun Academmic Initiative: how can we benefit from the program using Sun Learning Connection and 60% discount for Sun Certifications.
- Community Innovation Awards Program: Sun Microsystems is giving one million dollars for innovations in Open and Free Software. I showed to the students details of the program and how to participate.
Lunch: Sfiha and soda.
We used the JavaFX Wheel of Fortune for give prizes.
The next tech demo will be about one of those themes: JavaFX, Opensolaris or How to develop a module for Netbeans. I’m open for suggestions.
