I'll be attending FOSS.IN , Dec 4-8 in
Silicon Valley of
India (more popularly known as
Bangalore ). This is going
to be my first formal conference in India so I am excited! Find me and talk anything about
Sun Microsystems has held open systems to be the cornerstone of its business
philosophy since the beginning. Today, through shared technology innovation,
Sun's continued commitment to Open Source is reflected in its leadership and key
contributions to the many projects including
Grid Engine ,
java.net , NetBeans ,
and Mozilla . And here as well, Sun is a
Principal Sponsor of the event.
Here are some important links:
- When ? Dec 4-8, 2007
- Where ?
National Science Symposium Center ,
Institute of Science , Bangalore
- Schedule - At this this
this is a list of all the events happening with NO date/time/location
assigned to them. It seems slightly late knowing that the conference is less
than 3 weeks ago. And of course there is no individualized page where I can
pick/choose the sessions of my interest.
- Register here -
The registration process is slightly confusing by introducing different
kinds of delegates and the way payment is made. It is primitive too because
you register on the Web and then pay at the event (no Credit Card payments).
The rules are stern, for example no reissuing of conference badge.
- Know more - Join the
Mailing List .
The traffic is becoming high as the date is approaching.

far with a significant chunk from outside Bangalore (like me :).
