This year's Tech Days series begins in Sao Paulo, Brazil in October and concludes in May in India. James Gosling, vice president and Sun Fellow, is a featured speaker at many of the seminars.

Speakers include include Stuart Wells, senior vice president, Market Development; and Stans Kleijnen, vice president, Market Development Engineering.
"This year Sun has expanded its number of code camps and in-depth sessions to enable developers to experience the "how to" of building open web services," said Wells. "Technology experts will explain how Web services applications can leverage security fundamentals exemplified by project Liberty -- an industry framework for deploying secure distributed software systems. Sun understands the constant pressure developers are under to shorten the time it takes to develop innovative and robust solutions. Technology Days is just one of the programs Sun offers its more than two million developers to help equip them with the latest open software technologies and architectures."
