Venkat Submramaniam Talks on .NET, Java, Agile Programming at India's No.1 Forum for Software Developers
Great Indian Developer Summit 2010 – Biggest Event in Asia for IT Professionals
Bangalore, January 15, 2010: Over 6500 attendees have benefited from two game changing editions of Great Indian Developer Summit. In 2010, the biggest independent summit for software developers in India is bringing together over 100 sessions encompassing the full range of Microsoft computing, Java, Agile, RIA, Rich Web, open source/standards, languages, frameworks and platforms, practical tutorials that deep dive into technical skill and best practices, inspirational keynote presentations, an Expo Hall featuring dozens of the latest projects and products activities, Awards to honor software excellence, engaging networking events, and over 80 of the best and brightest of speakers from around the world. The summit will be held 20-23 April 2010 at the IISc in Bangalore (http://www.developersummit.com).
Dr. Venkat Subramaniam, a Great Indian Developer Summit Alumni, is coming back this summer to the summit to conduct focused conference sessions, a keynote and a workshop on topics ranging from .NET, Java, Groovy, functional programming to pointy haired bosses and pragmatic programmers.
On 20th April, at GIDS dot NET Conference, he will delve into what the functional style of programming offers and how you can utilize that using the F# language on the .NET CLR. He will move on to discuss pragmatic ways to deal with dependencies, and how, using mocks, effectively carryout unit tests; the focused session will also cover reasons to use mock vs. not using them, hand tossing mocks, and using frameworks to create them.
At the GIDS Java Conference on 21st April, Venkat will conduct a Jeopardy style presentation, where attendees will drive the topics to discuss various features of Java that require extra care and caution in everyday programming. We will pick a sample code, identify the problems in it, and figure out how to do it right. Later in the day you can attend a session on how to use patterns in Groovy and go beyond the GOF patterns in Groovy and Java. Venkat's next talk will take a deep dive into Generics, introduced in the 1.5 version (Java 5).
Venkat's keynote will address the fact that corporate developers have to constantly contend with fallacies often delivered to them as facts. However, each of us has a professional responsibility to be objective and make decisions that will help us and our teams be productive and deliver results. His talk will pick on some fallacies, lay down facts, and discuss how to stay professional and objective in our daily efforts.
On 23rd April, at the full-day GIDS Workshops, Dr. Subramaniam conducts hands-on training about functional programming -- take some familiar problems, solve it using traditional style and then refactor it to functional style. Although the training will use Scala and Erlang as vehicle to get the examples working, you don't have to be familiar with the syntax. You will participate to write pseudo code in these styles and the speaker will help you translate those into practical working examples in these languages.
More over, you can interact with Venkat at the summit to gain from his significant experience in architecture, design, and development of software applications, and in having mentored thousands of software developers in the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia. Overall seats are limited, so register early for the conference's focused sessions and workshops here: http://www.developersummit.com/registration.html.
