JavaOne India is a great success!
Tori Wieldt (you may know her as @java) and I have been in Hyderabad this week for JavaOne. It's our second year here and it's been a fantastic event. I haven't attended any sessions since I've been manning the Oracle Technology Network booth, but the feedback I've heard from both attendees and speakers has been positive across the board.
The Java Evangelism Team is out in full force, and with the addition of Steve Chin and Jim Weaver in the last couple of weeks they have made JavaFX one of the most popular topics here.
The event here is two days, a full day yesterday including keynotes, hands-on-labs, and technical sessions. Last night was the OTN Night party - there was a ton of great food and entertainment including a comedian and a group of Bollywood dancers. This morning we kicked off with a Meet the Experts session and will wrap up with a GlassFish party by the pool.
Several speakers will continue to tour India next week, doing JUG and Developer events. Details are here: https://blogs.oracle.com/java/
