We have just wrapped up the University World Tour at China Academia of Science (CAS) Graduate School. A total number of 646 students and professors from various institutes in Beijing joined us to celebrate James Gosling’s return to Beijing, and to enjoy the pleasure brought to them by Sun’s product and technology.
All the students received a copy of the localized version of NetBeans World Tour CD, a localized OpenSolaris Starter Kit, a T-Shirt, and instruction to student SCJP discount and Java Cup code competition. 1/5 of them also received various gifts such as Solaris books, NetBeans books, dukes, cups for their participation during the event. One iPod lucky draw was announced at the end of the event.
At the beginning of the event we had a full room with many students sitting on the floor and standing around (exactly like what happened at Shanghai Jiaotong University). During the 3.5 hours some people left, but new comers quickly filled in their spaces. At the end of the event we still had a full room, with people sitting on the floor and standing around. All the presentations were well received by the audience, and they were having a lot of fun with us.
Below is the agenda for this event:
(1) James Gosling, Java Now and Future (30 minutes)
(2) Angela Caicedo, Bleeding Edge Demo (20 minutes)
(3) Michael Li, Java Demo (20 minutes)
(4) Angela Caicedo, NetBeans Demo (20 minutes)
(5) Jim Grisanzio, The OpenSolaris Story (30 minutes)
(6) Michael Li and John Jiang, Java Puzzle (40 minutes)
(7) John Jiang, Go for SCJP (10 minutes)
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the people who helped a lot to make this event an amazing success.
