3rd ‘Java in Manila’ slated on
Sun Microsystems Philippines kicks off its third Java in Manila
programmers’ conference on April 25, 2006 with one goal in mind:
expand the country’s Java developer base by raising considerable
awareness about the versatility and uses of the object-oriented
programming language, which is fast becoming the de facto
application development tool of many enterprises today.
Sun is bringing in consultants and leading experts from the U.S.
and Asia to the one-day conference at the Rizal Ballroom of the
Makati Shangri-La Hotel with the aim of helping build the
expertise of the Java developer base in the country. "We are
holding this conference with the view of sharing Sun’s vast
store of knowledge, garnered through nearly 10 years of Java
development, said Cynthia Mamon, Sun Microsystems Philippines (SunPhil)
President and Managing Director.
Java has come a long way since it was first released in 1995.
Today, Java runs on some 650 million PCs, and powers 750 million
Java cards. Sun estimates that the value of the global Java
technology economy at 100 billion in sales and another 0 billion
in related IT spending. "We want local developers to be able to
share knowledge on Java as well, thereby enriching the current
store of expertise in best practice," explains Mamon.
Java in Manila offers technical and business-focused sessions on
relevant areas of the popular objectoriented programming
language, including Java Standard Edition and topics like
Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). The conference itself will
offer the following topics:
Java" EE & Web 2.0 Programming Using Blueprints Java" SE on the

In addition, Java in Manila also offers the best Java technology
developers the chance to test their mettle against their peers.
The Java in Manila Coding Challenge brings developers together
to compete with well-written code for prizes and fun. Developers
are encouraged to bring knowledge garnered from conference
sessions to realworld programming problems in similar topics.
Through the collaboration of Sun and its partners, Java in
Manila has emerged as the ‘’definitive developer’’ forum for the
Java community in the Philippines. The conference will offer one
plenary session followed by tw track sessions that can be
selected from a host of topics. An exhibit will also be
organized to highlight Java partnerships. Over 800 developers,
